Mija - Bad For U feat. Kelli Schaefer [Official Music Video]

This is the first single from my EP How To Measure The Distance Between Lovers, and it's a song with Kelli Schaefer. I produced it, and the lyrics & vocals were written/performed by Kelli. In VICE's profile they wrote that the song, "plays like future blues, fusing the uncanny effects of Oneohtrix Point Never with the bass-scaping of Burial and the crystalline beauty of Björk."

A few months ago, Kelli Schaefer and i were connected by a friend via the internet. He shared some of kelli's recent music, and i found a personal connection to the song "Bad For You". The heart-wrenching depth of the lyrics and kellis voice stayed with me, so i reached out to ask if i could rework the song as a personal exercise, without expectations. Kelli was excited to work with someone outside of her indie rock scene and sent the vocal acapella to see where it might go. over the course of the next few months, i reproduced the song and then we both decided to re-release this new version as the first single on my forthcoming debut EP release.

The track was mixed & mastered by Shawn Naderi
