Minks Unveil Two New Tracks "Everything Is Fine" and "Painted Indian"

Minks have released two new songs "Everything Is Fine" and "Painted Indian", taken from their upcoming sophomore album 'Tides End', out on 5th August via Captured Tracks.

'Tides End', the follow-up to their 2011's By The Hedges, was written after the band's frontman and songwriter Sonny Kilfoyle moved out of New York to Long Island after a bout of writer's block, and is named after an estate by the beach that Sonny came across during writing sessions.

When Kilfoyle came back to the city, he teamed up with recent Berlin transplant Mark Verbos at the producer/engineer's New York studio by the Brooklyn side of the Williamsburg Bridge.

"It was actually a very uninspiring and uncreative but it forced us to use our imagination and find new ways to work together," Kilfoyle said of the setting.

Listen: Visage Preview New Song "Hidden Sign" - Day 4

Visage have shared another sneak peek of their upcoming full length 'Hearts and Knives', out on May 20th.

Day 4 - "Hidden Sign

About the song the band explain:

"'Hidden Sign' is the first song on the album to highlight the masterful bass playing of Steve Barnacle. The clean amped bass line and the 80s beats and grooves propel this song along."

"Hidden Sign is more Visage album two in style when it comes to sound, but the middle 8 and the Steve spoken monologue are possibly one of the high points in the whole album. The lyrics talk about the over analysis of a love affair bringing it to the point of collapse. Does it survive? Draw your own conclusion."
