FM4 Indie box with Mine (D)

As minimalistic as necessary and yet as gripping as possible, Mine creates great German pop music. (Radioactive)

The world is out of joint, and even Mine will not be able to adjust it. But it doesn't have to. She doesn't want it at all. The Mainzerin prefers to paint onomatopoetically her personal fixed stars in the sky, at which we can adjust our compasses and correct interpersonal cosmos.

For two years Mine has been travelling around with intimate first-person stories that inspire us to think about ourselves. She plays concerts from Hamburg to Berlin to Munich. Can be seen on TV Noir. She delights some. Inspires others. "Art always comes first", she emphasizes, "the project should grow healthily". That succeeds: Beyond every genre drawer, experimental omnichord sounds shimmer through their songs via strong piano melodies. In addition, driving drums, minimal guitar riffs and choral songs suggest a ghostly epic.

This unobtrusive songwriting, the fine-meshed sound carpets and mines of strong voice are the experience. Not only with a band, but also with an orchestra she has already tested herself on stage. Financed by Crowdfunding, Mine spent a year re-arranging her songs. Finally she staged Mine music with 45 musicians in an opulent garb. In the meantime she skilfully incorporates jazz and folk borrowings into her electronic songs as well as elements of hip hop. Not for nothing did Samy Deluxe get her on the hook for the track "Offenes Herz" ("Open Heart") on his latest record "Männlich". Mine's cautious way of making music does not follow the goal of moving great things. She succeeds in more important things: returning to our intimate worlds of thought. To us. (Press release)
