Mild Minds has had a big February and start to 2020. The Australian artist attended the Grammys to start the month, where he was nominated for Best Remixed Recording, a recognition of his work on "SWIM." A big night for any artist, he spent time and care getting ready and documenting his night with industry contemporaries with memories and photographs, some of which he's shared with us.
In preparation for a long day of outfit shopping, you need to cook yourself a mighy breakfast. Get that energy and confidence up.
We found this absolutely killer APC Jacket
We also found the perfect vintage St Laurent tux but it was too small!
So now that we blew a bunch of money, we had to choose which option. I was tempted to go with the Classic tux as i'm usually totally underdressed?
But I couldn't deal with having no character. So opted for the more colorful option. After all that shopping the only items I used were the $30 shoes and tie.
Grammy's day brunch at Louie Bottega with management. One of my favorite LA spots when i first moved here. We celebrated years of hard work together. It was cute. Thanks Justin.
Nominee and partner in crime FORD. Amazing producer, he did the remix that we're here for.
Mama we made it! - (in reality it was a complete shit show)
Lil Nas was the standout, multiple outfit changes throughout the night.
One of the best sets of nominees I've seen at the Grammy's
I was pretty confident we didn't stand a chance, but hey, we were nominated in the first place, so odds are down to 1in 5. (We didn't win) haha
The non-televised part of the event was really beautiful, it showed the diversity, sense of community and support in the music industry. The Tv side was a little more OTT. But overall it was awesome to be nominated in the same year as a bunch of friends and to go to this event with them.
On a side note, how awesome is Tanya Ttucker's outfit. She won her first grammy at 61!
As the dust settled from music's biggest night, Mild Minds quickly followed to release a new single entitled "WALLS" to announce a new album on the way just this week. Featuring Boats on vocals, the track's debut also serves as an announcement of his forthcoming debut album due out via his frequent home at Foreign Family Collective / Counter Records on March 13, entitled MOOD.
And it's that album title that helps describe Mild Minds' music as he moves forward in his career: moody, intriguing electronica with hints of dance music's larger story scattered throughout. "The meaning behind 'WALLS' is somewhat dichotomous, we wanted the track to have a dual meaning depending on the listener," he said in a press release upon the track's release. "Boats wanted the message to be somewhat political, a nod to the issues happening at the American border, whilst I wanted to reference the more internal and interpersonal walls we build every day."
MOOD is available to pre-save on all platforms here.
