In the era of fast media, an overload of information and short attention spans, we figured it would be a good idea to create a news outlet other than social media, to keep those interested in our artists and the label informed about everything that’s going on here at Mink. From releases to new signings and events, the Mink newsletter will be the most concise and clear overview of everything we do. We expect to do about 6 news letters a year, depending on the amount of news we have for you! If you’d like to sign up, you can do so below. You can unsubscribe at any time.

Head over to Gigwise to get a first look at the video for ‘Figure’, The Visual’s recently released single. Thanks to Andy Hill for the kind words! ❤️
“Anna van Rij’s voice, cool and evanescent as the morning dew, veers between melancholy lethargy and emotionally wrought upper-register bends. Partner in crime Timon Persoon does his ‘voodoo soundman’ bit on keys, crafting an proper three-dimensional sound landscape at the tender locus of soundtrack and songwriting.”
Out today on all streaming platforms: ‘Figure’, the first single by The Visual from their upcoming debut album ‘Moments of Being’. The track was mixed by Grammy award winner Darrell Thorp (Paul McCartney, Foo Fighters, Beck, Ray Charles, Jay-Z and Radiohead) and mastered by Steve Fallone at Sterling Sound in NYC.
