1ST SINGLE TO SEE A RELEASE OFF UPCOMING SOPHOMORE EP, DUE OUT SUMMER 2019
“smooth blend of electro beats and funky guitar” – The FADER
“a sharp, stylish edge to escapist pop” – DIY
“Menacing, deep-bass electro-noir from the hotly tipped Swede.” – The Sunday Times
“a home run for yet another rising electropop act warming Sweden’s chilly winds” – SPIN
“satin-smooth voice, glossy synths, and elegant production value” – Interview Magazine
Describing the new single, Miynt notes, “I’ve always been inspired by early Bond movie theme music, so I wrote a synopsis for a Bond movie that never existed. The movie begins at a space station in the late ’60s where people (the bad guys) are doing experiments on space monkeys and then a lot of action plays out that I can’t reveal, though one thing I can say is that Bond goes on vacation to France two times in the film. I wrote all the music for this fake Bond movie but this is the only track that made it on this EP, which is about Bond’s 2nd trip to south of France.”
Catch Miynt live this week at her single release show this Thursday, May 2 in Stockholm @ Häktet.
The new single is a bold return for Miynt, whose unique blend of psych rock and grunge pop has captivated fans and critics since her 2016 debut project, Ep no. 1, which solidified Miynt’s place among the top up-and-comers. The release boasted standout singles including “The Strangest Game,” “After The Gold Rush,” and “Cool,” which prompted love from outlets like The FADER, Stereogum, and SPINand saw radio support from the likes of KCRW and Zane Lowe / Beats 1. Touting the EP, DIY described its tracklist as “glitter-flecked pop songs that blaze a completely different trail.”
Since her debut EP, Miynt has stayed occupied in the Stockholm arts scene, playing various live shows and notably assembling a 4-piece band for the Miynt project whom she now plays with live. She has also delved into the world of analog production, which is present on much of the upcoming EP, boasting mostly live recorded instrumentals. Much of the upcoming EP is also self-produced, a skill that Miynt continues to hone. Fun fact: The building where the studio where much of the EP was written and produced was once used in the early 19th century as a radon-room for medical testing.
