GRAMMY-nominated artist Mild Minds has unveiled his latest single “HAUNTED,” out now on Foreign Family Collective. Staying true to the track title, “HAUNTED” is a soul-stirring soundscape that sees Mild Minds tap into his trademark blend of driving synths and captivating vocals. It follows a lauded string of recent singles “MACHINE” and “NO SKIN” featuring UK artist Frameworks, tracks that have already amassed well over 2 million collective streams across all platforms.
“I think we had all spent a part of 2020 contemplating a lot about our own lives, while feeling a general sense of darkness looming over whether we’d be losing loved ones, or not,” explains Mild Minds on his newest release. “For a lot of us we did. The heaviness of it all led me to explore more melancholic themes in my music. I found myself breaking down all of the shades that might be associated with melancholy; exploring death, loss, rebirth, and the associated beauty. This ultimately led me to wanting to use flowers on the artwork, being something that both dies and blooms again each year. At the same time I was re-learning piano, or even in a way properly learning piano. It was such a rush to be feeling the music through touch and finding an ability to speak through it. I found myself playing a set of similar chords over and over through the first half of the year; verses, choruses, outros. Slowly but surely, this song formed from a combination of those. This was immediately one of my favorite tracks I’ve ever written.”
