Gloomy Brooklyn band Minks caught our attention last spring with the release of their debut 7″ “Funeral Song”. At the time, we thought they really captured the sound of a long lost, early demo by The Cure. But their new track “Cemetary Rain” doesn’t really sound like The Cure at all. While keeping with their brooding dream-pop sound, this is possibly Minks at their most cheerful to date.
Minks will release their debut lp By the Hedge via Captured Tracks on January 12, 2011.
