Our latest discovery is the Stockholm-based singer MIYNT, who just released the second serving from her debut EP, quite literally titled Ep no. 1

No matter how you slice it, MIYNT’s sound gracefully hits a sweet spot for psychedelic indie, catchy pop, and synth-y electro lovers alike. She unveiled “After The Gold Rush” on THE FADER today, explaining that it was named after the great Neil Young’s album with the same title. She shared,

After The Gold Rush is a song dedicated to the Neil Young album with the same title. I worked as an assistant to the artist Jacob Dahlgren a summer three years ago and he introduced me to that record. I listened to it for that whole summer in the studio drinking coffee and painting squares for a sculpture (yes it was a great job). The song is playing with some of the titles of that record but it is also about time. How things have a timeline and about doing the best of things and not to overthink it.

“After The Gold Rush” was a proper follow-up to “The Strangest Game,” the song that initially got us hooked to MIYNT. As a visual and conceptual artist, MIYNT even drew the single artwork for both tracks herself. This lady is the full package!

EP no 1 is available for pre-order here.
