Minor Sounds: English Indie Sounds
Minor Sounds is a dark folk/electronic project. "The Humming" comes from Brighton based singer/songwriter Mirna Stanich and Warsaw based producer Martin Zietek. It was recorded in a few living rooms in Brighton and Martin's home studio in a village near Warsaw, bouncing tracks back and forth between them. The recordings were made between 2009 and 2012.
The title track of the album "The Humming" has been featured on Fat Cat Records Demo Compilation 2012 and received many plays on BBC Introducing: The South and recently on BBC Radio 6 Music.
Mirna moved to UK after finishing University in Croatia. The songs on the album follow the trials and tribulations of her first few years abroad. Through collaboration with Martin, whom she met in Brighton UK in 2008, she took a different turn musically and started incorporating electronics and producing her own music. At the moment she is working on her second album.
Martin comes from the Warsaw underground scene having played in an electronic band called Elektrolot, still hugely respected in Warsaw music circles. The band released one album on Teeto Records and fell apart during the writing of the second one due to difficult life circumstances. Martin has done music for theaters, documentaries and produced music for various bands in Warsaw, and Minor Sounds.
"Crooked Feet" has a bit of a traditional indie sound. It's very mellow, calming, and easy going. "Everything You Need" is another song that I enjoy. It sounds somewhat desperate, but, is about a certain type of hopelessly romantic- yet destructive- love that all of us have experienced at some point or another.
