British singer, songwriter and musician Minke (rhymes with “link”), has returned today with a stunning new single titled “Maybe 25.” Available worldwide on all digital platforms, “Maybe 25” was written about the emptiness of online dating and the hold technology has over us, with an equal amount of humour and disdain, Minke explains. “It was originally inspired by my fleeting past experiences with online dating. As I started to write, it became less and less about that and more a general observation on connection. We’ve never been more connected but disconnected at the same time. It’s made us more insular, less open to having a conversation with a stranger and maintaining eye contact for more than a second without looking at your phone. So it’s about longing for something more than that, whatever that is. Something real in a seemingly disposable world. Questioning if that’s still possible. Questioning if it’s got the better of you too.”
Written by Minke and Rory Andrew (Wynne, ODESZA) who also produced the track, “Maybe 25” follows two previously released singles that quickly ignited an online frenzy surrounding this up-and-coming artist; Her debut, “Gold Angel,” soon earned the hype of Apple’s Zane Lowe & Beats 1, was featured on Spotify’s New Music Friday, Pop Rising, and hit No.1 on Hype Machine twice within the space of two weeks. . The promising London-born artist soon followed with the spectacular “Armour,” a “female empowerment anthem about letting go of your defences and learning how to be vulnerable, especially with those closest to you”. Now, returning with “Maybe 25,” it’s beyond a doubt this exciting new artist is destined to make waves in the musical arena this year.
Minke is currently working on her debut EP and plans to release it this fall as well as tour North America.
