If an artist says a song is “one of his favorite songs he’s ever written,” our expectations are high. When one of our Foreign family favorites, Gentle spirits, said this about his new single “Haunted“, he really succeeded.
“Haunted” follows on from his single released earlier this fall, continuing Mild Mind’s mission to explore human emotion through electronic music. After spending the last year relearning how to properly play the piano, the main feature of “Haunted” is the warm synth line. It floats along an upbeat drum line, while Mild Minds sings the cycle of life in an icy, sweet falsetto voice.
The contemplative nature of the trail takes us through a variety of emotions. Mild Minds breaks it down for us:
I think we all spent part of 2020… feeling a general sense of darkness looming over whether we were going to lose loved ones or not… I found myself shattering all the nuances that could be associated with melancholy ; exploring death, loss, rebirth and the associated beauty… It was so eager to feel the music through touch and to find the ability to speak through it.
