Mumble Tide, the Bristol-based duo of Gina Leonard and Ryan Rogers, have shared a new single called ‘Kindest’. Listen to it below.
“’Kindest’ is about those shady thoughts you try to lock up inside yourself, about feeling weird and scared and guilty,” Leonard explained in a statement. “It’s potentially our favourite track we’ve ever made together. The arrangements are more sophisticated than our normal kiddy vibe and we feel good about (hopefully) having pulled that off.”
“‘Kindest’ is the second song after ‘Hotel Life’ from a set of tracks we made over the last 12 months as we tried (and failed) to rebuild our lives,” Leonard continued. “We’d been fans of Ellie Mason’s (Voka Gentle) work for years and when Ryan clocked that she had the same favourite Taylor Swift record (1989), we were super keen to co-produce this batch with her. She instantly understood what we were trying to do and we spent 5 days at her studio enhancing the chaotic demos we’d been dragging around the UK with us. Everything she added and tweaked injected energy and harmony into the tracks and she perfectly captured the emotions in each song. She made it seem so effortless too – she’s a clever bunny.”
