Mild Minds officially released his first single of 2021 in the form of “NO SKIN,” out now via ODESZA’s Foreign Family Collective label. The track is a collab with fellow electronic producer Frameworks.
“NO SKIN” sees Mild Minds once again in his element of melodic lo-fi house. An alluring handpan motif makes up the song’s main refrain, with Mild Minds layering in organic synth and lush backing percussion. Over it all, Mild Minds’ signature falsetto takes center stage, creating a dream-like ambiance. The whole vibe of the song makes us feel like we’re floating in cool, tranquil waters.
Mild Minds gave some insight into the deeper meaning of the song:
“Lyrically, ‘NO SKIN’ is about always being on the run and having no skin in the game. I knew a person in my life that I met who always moved from town to town, from one friend group to another, constantly making mistakes and then up and leaving with no ties to her old self. Kind of like ‘nobody can hurt you’, because you’re always leaving them’; there’s something tender and sad about that.”
Overall, this track is an impressive follow up to his 2020 GRAMMY nomination, and we can’t wait to see what’s next for the talented producer. You can check out this track using the link below, enjoy!
