Grammy-nominated artist Mild Minds has unveiled his latest single "HAUNTED", out October 27th on Foreign Family Collective.
Staying true to the track title, "HAUNTED" is a soul-stirring soundscape that sees Mild Minds tap into his trademark blend of driving synths and captivating vocals. It follows a lauded string of recent singles "MACHINE" and "NO SKIN" featuring UK artist Frameworks.
"I think we had all spent a part of 2020 contemplating a lot about our own lives, while feeling a general sense of darkness looming over whether we'd be losing loved ones, or not" Ben shares. "For a lot of us we did. The heaviness of it all led me to explore more melancholic themes in my music. I found myself breaking down all of the shades that might be associated with melancholy; exploring death, loss, rebirth, and the associated beauty. Slowly but surely, this song formed from a combination of those. This was immediately one of my favorite tracks I've ever written."
Drawing comparisons to the likes of Bonobo, Maribou State, Caribou and Four Tet, Mild Minds is the brainchild of Benjamin David. The Grammy-nominated vocalist and producer assembles electronic music agnostic of genre, striking a delicate balance between dancefloor-ready and downtempo moods. David introduced the Mild Minds project with his 'SWIM' EP, seeing him swiftly signed to ODESZA’s Foreign Family Collective label. He toured with everyone from Big Wild to TYCHO, and is fresh off of a show stopping performance at the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheatre and a striking summer set at Splash House this past August in Palm Springs, California.
"HAUNTED" further exemplifies Benjamin’s production proficiencies and captures the essence of the Mild Minds sound.
