Mideau (pronounced “Mid-doh”) is an indie pop duo that consists of Libbie Linton and Spencer J. Harrison. Their name is constructed from two words that loosely translate to “middle of the water,” a phrase I’m sure music journalists are gonna love trying to decipher. But I’m less interested in forced meanings and more interested in demonstrable talent. “Maude,” a single that appears on their upcoming debut, is one of those tracks that entice you with its familiarity before switching gears and going in a different direction. In a genre already saturated with too many boy/girl duos, Mideau proves they can stand out from the pack with a sound that’s as original as their name. For more, check out their EP, Way With Words.
