Minks - 'Tides End'

Sonny Kilfoyle intones such Morrissey-sour quips as “Happy birthday/Can I poison your drink?”

Minks - 'Tides End'

Album Info

  • Label: Captured Tracks
6 / 10 When Captured Tracks achieved wider recognition a few years back, Minks were perhaps the US indie label’s archetypal act. Fuzzy-edged, romantic swooners who mined 1980s Britain for inspiration, Minks – formed in New York, now based in Long Island – take sideways steps into retro synth-pop on second album ‘Tides End’. Over drum machines and wispy electro pulses, Sonny Kilfoyle intones such Morrissey-sour quips as “Happy birthday/Can I poison your drink?”. Musically it’s akin to the recent Neon Neon album, but Kilfoyle’s musings on romance and class are all his own.
