Mimi Kőrös, Budapest-based singer-songwriter-producer and Twitch streamer grew up in Malaysia in a musician family – her stage name ’Saya Noé’ means ’I am Noé’ in Malaysian. She’s making mellow electro-pop, alternative pop tunes in a do-it-yourself mode and (after some early attempts) started her live music career in 2019. In her first full year she became one of the selected talents of the Hungarian Support Programme, also made the Top15 shortlist of HOTS Export Office and CEE professionals voted her to the line-up of Budapest Showcase Hub. ’Under The River’, her biggest hit so far was a collaboration with Grammy-awarded UK producer Matt Lawrence and got a unique video, shot in a torrent. She got coverage in IQ Magazine (2020/11) and became ’Band of The Day’ on Europavox on 18 Dec 2020, referred as ’the Hungarian Lana Del Rey’ upon her first album ’Museum of Sins’ which was released also in December.
