Our day one homie M!NT is back with a dope new EP packed with tasty music. It’s crazy to see how far he’s come since we started working with him a few years ago to where he is now. He began this transformation when he moved to New York and his new EP represents the struggle we all face during times that try our will. “There’s beauty in the struggle,” Cody (M!NT) says of the theme which underlies Through Darkness. “You don’t fully realize how good you have it until you have to fight for what you love. Life goes on and things always improve, that’s what this record means to me.” Salt Lake City-based visual artist Alethia Lunares took the lead on creating original art for each of the tracks, bringing the listener fully into M!NT’s world for the journey Through Darkness.
The EP kicks off with “Afterlife” which lulls the listener in, before “Ghosts” turns left into heavier territory, pulled back into relaxed footwork vibes with “Sleepwalker,” before diving all the way into the depths with “Drift” and “Creatures,” featuring the debut of M!NT’s new live band,Alchemy, with singer Zaj Williams and pianist JJ Lindenthal. The emergence of the trio marks a return to live musicality for M!NT and is only the very start of a new chapter for each of them – fans would do well to stay tuned for more new material from Alchemy in 2016.Have a listen to M!NT’s journey below and keep an eye for it to pop up on Spotify and iTunes soon.
