MINT - New Music "Introducing"

Music from Scandinavia should come with a pretty simple tag-line, we do it better. Here's another casing point. MINT is a brand new artist from Sweden who has little more than a very recently formed Facebook page, a tumblr and two videos on Vimeo to go on so far but has already picked up some nice coverage from established blogs such as ynyvyl and Nordic by Nature.

Both "Sounds" and "Bored" are minimalist synth-pop beauties that draw you in with hypnotic soundscapes full of atmosphere and just a hint of darkness. Sounds" is the most complete, a luscious blend of bass and skittering electronics that blend around a soft, dreamy vocal. The result has already penned the usual Knife comparisons and it's going to be interesting to see exactly what Mint comes up with next.
