Having a bad day? In dire need of a sook? Look no further than New York’s Minks! Sure they’re more than just moody but it’s one defining quality of their 2011 long player ‘By The Hedge’. Minks are echo laden, sometimes sparse and always shimmering with jangly guitars and delicate melodies.

Minks first single ‘Ophelia’ was released in 2010, Fader noted that Minks sounds as “If Robert Smith gave birth to a baby, and the baby was actually a cassette of Cure demos that had a lot more staying power than actual Cure demos.”

Whilst the band is mostly the work of Boston-native Sonny Kilfoyle, the vocals of his Danish bandmate Amalie Bruun come to the fore in ‘Juniper’ and the more poppy track ‘Kusmi’. But for today you can kick the dust to ‘Our Ritual’! Here’s hoping Minks follow up ‘By The Hedge’ soon…
