“I wanted to do something that was completely ‘me’ in that moment. After being used to working with songs that had elaborate visions over long periods of time, it was nice to make music simply as it came out. Without overthinking it, without pausing or questioning the process like I was used to,” shared Mild Minds.
Benjamin David is the mastermind behind Mild Minds who started songsmithing at the age of 13 in his home in Australia. He’s currently working on his debut LP, so stay tuned.
