Mimi (Aimee Belton) first met Rivers (Chris Baigent) during the aftermath of the 2011 Christchurch earthquake.

As Mimi & Rivers, the duo plays folky tunes with pop melodies and strong harmonies.

Their 2018 debut album Simple Lives is about "making peace with the past, still believing in a future, completing the circle and having something tangible to leave behind” Mimi has said.

Mimi & Rivers perform in our Auckland studio and chat to Jesse Mulligan.

Listen to the album versions of 'In the Light' and 'Unknown Pleasures' on SoundCloud here.

Mimi & Rivers' Simple Lives launch party is at Auckland's Cupid Bar on 7 December.
