Minke – Gold Angel

Mar 3 2017

If The XX had a cousin it would be Minke. The enigmatic London upstart’s debut single, “Gold Angel” exudes cool ease and nimble, isolated guitar riffs for a unique cocktail of alt-rock/R&B. The song’s poetic sensibilities echo contemporaries such as Lianne La Havas and Jessie Ware, and is inspired by the resilience required of all women when it comes to braving societal pressure – an especially relevant message at this time during Women’s History Month.
