“This song felt like movement to me, which is kinda ironic as I also felt like I was trapped at the time. ‘mint’ is a callout for a fresh start, something new. Being so close, but you’re not quite there yet.”
Today sees the release of keaton dekker’s follow-up to his much hyped debut back in April. This track has more of a mellow, introspective essence that shows another side to this kid’s unique sound.
“The song addresses miscommunication, and how it can create a huge misjudgement of character. The twists and turns of being in a friendship that isn’t 100% open and honest.”
A talent emerging from East London, citing influences from The Cure through to Britney Spears and 80’s horror movies. Balancing a sound between eclectic and nostalgic dream pop with melancholic indie.
“My aim was to create escapism and atmosphere. I wanted the sounds to take me far away and sound exactly how I felt.”
