CHINAH - Minds

11/21/2015 Tunes For Loons 0 Comments

We are late to the party here, but as they say, better late than never. Actually scratch that. In indie land, if you are late to the party, you can basically go kill yourself. For example, if you walked into a party in Bushwick and raved about brand new artist the Weeknd and his smash hit The Hills, at least one hipster's head would explode. And their last words would be: "I KNEW ABOUT HOUSE OF BALLOONS IN 2011 FUCKERS." Anyways, I digress. The point here is: I'm digging CHINAH and their sound, even though this song came out a full 2.5 weeks ago. If I had to label them...foreign Haim? (They are Danish!) I would say the similarities come more from the style of singing rather than actual vocal sound. It's kind of swooping? That analysis was vague and pretty meaningless, but that's as scientific as I can get. The heavy synths are great. First of all, who doesn't love that shit, and secondly, they go great with the pixie singing. Lastly, I feel emotion when I listen to this! In the jaded world of the Internet, that's an admirable feat.
