minka

Sometimes press releases write their own reviews, case in point the one accompanying a new incoming single from Minka entitled ‘Josephine’ during the course of which, mention is made of Talking Heads and David Bowie both of whom step out waving from the grooves the minute this kicks into life. It would be foolish and indeed be almost impossible not to mention both as an overriding influence here, yet what we will say is imagine Bowie in his ‘John, I’m only dancing’ phase with the angular white funk groove of Byrne and Co relocated beneath the revolving mirror ball flashes of a mid 70’s vintage Chic smoked Studio 54 setting wherein amid the packed who’s who guest list roll call there’s the ghostly frequenting of Sylvester and Prince types cutting shapes. Whatever the case, this is sure to do toe tapping damage in the coolest of clubland venues. https://soundcloud.com/weareminka/josephine
