Hello! We’ve been trying to contain our excitement and omigosh it’s finally time to announce the latest addition to the Mint roster: Fake Tears!
Even before joining as Fake Tears, Larissa Loyva and Elisha May Rembold were already established singers and songwriters in their own right. You’ll probably remember Larissa from her work in P:ano and the Choir Practice, or Elisha from Lost Lover’s Brigade and Shimmering Stars. Or maybe you recognize them both as vocalists for the funked-up Adrian Teacher/Amanda Pezzutto/Shawn Mrazek combo COOL TV? Either way, we’re super excited to have them on board!
The duo’s full-length debut, Nightshifting, is nine songs that send shivers while teeming with beauty. The duelling microKORGs of Loyva and Rembold create a mysterious wonderland and although their masterful label-mate producer Jay Arner’s name is in the credits, these songs show little sign of alteration.
Earnest and unadulterated, Nightshifting explores themes of love and loss but always keeps its playful side in the mirror as these remarkably talented singers let their vocals soar over haunting synths.
Don’t miss your chance to grab this one on vinyl because not only is the sound awesome but so is Sian Hislop’s stunning artwork. LP and digitals versions will be available August 7, but you can pre-order it here now!
