'Minru' - new single 'Windmills'


We cover a lot of lovely new music obviously, but every now and then something gets sent through to us which is particularly special, and (after a quiet week of updates) we’re delighted to be able to introduce you to Swedish artist ‘Minru’. Her latest release ‘Windmills’ is just so lovely, and already we’re really looking forward to her next EP release in April.

Although we haven’t featured Minru previously, we have indirectly featured her as a musician, as she plays with the exceptional Norwegian songwriter 'Tuva' (in her 'Tuvaband' project), but is a song-writer, producer and musician also and writes under the project name ‘Minru’ from her base in Berlin. She's released an EP in 2017 and a couple of tracks more recently which you can find on streaming services, but her latest track 'Windmills' was released last week.

'Windmills’ is the perfect example of her alternative folk songwriting style, with so many highlights, from the dreamy vocals, delicate melodies and the most beautiful constructed musical arrangements that sit behind the music. I particularly love the piano contribution, and the uplifting melodies disappear off in a direction that you won’t quite expect - little glimpses of beautiful rays of sunshine reflecting down on the images she describes in her lyrics.

This is 'Windmills':

We will definitely try and write about her' EP when it's released in April, in the meantime try and check out all her music and visit her in the following places.
