The twins Giovanna and Mario from Salzburg make up the electronic duo Mynth. They create a captivatingly restrained yet demanding mix of trip-hop and analog synth sounds. The most diverse shades of melancholy are embedded in synth-dream-pop landscapes which are then painted with a soft voice and enveloping heaviness. With pounding beats and a fragile voice they eventually ascend to new summits only to, like all things in their finiteness, eventually blur back into spherical synth landscapes. Minimalist downtempo synthesizer passages float in an atmosphere somewhere between Nine Inch Nails, Portishead, Laurie Anderson, and Caribou. Their debut album Plaat II (2016) and follow-up „Parallels” (2017) are out on Seayou Records.
