Mild Minds is the brand new addition to ODESZA’s Foreign Family Collective, and he's making his announcement today with a three-song EP to properly introduce himself. Titled 'SWIM', the EP is a lo-fi dance record and we've got the first listen right here, right now.
Smooth vocals lead with the infectious title track, heavy, but tasteful synth-work flows into "Weak Signal", while "Don't Want Your Love" closes the short three tracks out in a sensible style, fit for any dance floor. Bits of Disclosure meets Hayden James, there's even a bit of disco vibe in the air.
Having written the EP between Joshua Tree and Lake Arrowhead, the EP marks the first taste of Mild Minds’ solo material after putting his creative forces behind several successful projects. As he explains, "I wanted to do something that was complete 'me' at that moment. After being used to working with songs that had elaborate visions over long periods of time, it was nice to make music simply as it came out. Without overthinking it, without pausing or questioning the process like I was used to." More music is in store and we got the first taste here, enjoy!
