Mint Julep – To The Sea:
Mint Julep are husband and wife team Hollie and Keith Kenniff who make indie music capable of swooning your soul. There is a perfect layering of Hollie’s haunting and soothing vocals over the various loops, skiffs, and rifts created by the extraordinarily talented ambient instrumentalist Keith Kenniff. The band’s latest single, To The Sea, brings together, in one simply incredible piece of music, everything Mint Julep is about. It is very hard for me to decide what I like more about this track; Hollie’s spot-on entrancing vocals or Keith’s brilliant musical scoring that sets the backbone for this work of art. And do I really even have to decide what aspect I like best? The two just compliment each other so exponentially, giving a damn good reason for the husband and wife to have decided to come together as the collaborative Mint Julep.
To The Sea can be found on the band’s latest album Save Your Season, which saw a release in late November of 2011.
