Minks | Everything’s Fine
Minks’ label Captured Tracks posted a stream of two new singles, one of which is called “Everything’s Fine”, a song from off the band’s upcoming record, “Tides End”, due out August 6th. The new album is the follow-up to 2011′s “By The Hedge”. “Everything’s Fine” is a sweet track, proving the band can play a jangly synth-pop as well as melancholic lo-fi. The song opens with a thumping bass beat, a squiggly synth and shimmer before introducing warm guitar melodies and whispery vocals. The second upbeat track, “Painted Indian”, can be streamed at soundcloud. Minks is Sean Kilfoyle and Amalie Bruun, but often appear with other musicians when playing live.
