Madboy/Mink To Release New Sound With New EP, ‘P.E.S.F.’ In Five Different Cities
by EVENTFAQS Bureau Entertainment | July 11, 2018 | Press Release
Live electronica duo Madboy/Mink, known for their trademark electro-funk sound and high-energy theatrical performances, will release their new EP, Persons. Elastic. Superior. Fantastic (P.E.S.F.) on July 18.
Saba Azad and Imaad Shah’s aka Madboy/Mink’s new output ‘P.E.S.F.’ see them exchange their playful sound for a more grown-up, vivid sonic palette inspired by synthesizers and one that can be classified as cosmic disco.
“We’ve lived with these songs for a bit now and it explores themes that have been on our mind,” say Madboy/Mink. “This sound came out of exploring certain synthesizer sounds and sounds from the early days of house music, post-punk, some synth-driven soundtracks, etc. We began tinkering with these things and slowly began to filter them through the lens of a certain kind of 60s psychedelia that we’re both into. We are multilingual, post-colonial kids and we see no reason to tow the line in terms of genre,” they add.
Persons. Elastic. Superior. Fantastic also features the late Karan Joseph on the song, ‘Plastic Elastic’, a definite highlight of the album. “That song features Karan pretty much playing in a style he’s never been heard in before. The day that song was written really showed his versatility and genius,” say Saba and Imaad.
Apart from newer sounds, the EP and upcoming tour will also showcase a new live set-up for Madboy/Mink. The EP will launch exclusively on July 18 on Apple Music, post which it will also be available on all other streaming platforms like Soundcloud, Bandcamp, Saavn, and Spotify.
‘Persons. Elastic. Superior. Fantastic’ features a new lush, synth-driven sonic direction for the live electronica act; EP launch tour to cover Mumbai, Pune, Delhi, Shillong and Guwahati
