Mina Rose

Mina Rose is preparing to release her second EP, ‘London Burning’, later this summer. The follow-up to last year’s ‘Issue 25’, with her new music she establishes herself even more firmly as an exciting new name.

Rose has already released two tracks from the new EP, ‘Blind Man Dreams’ and more recently ‘Paradise’. The latter in particular marks her out from her peers. Over a Barney Lister-produced track, she really plays with the rhythm of her lyrics, making them dance around the beat.

“When I visualise the idea of someone getting lost in their own thoughts, I imagine them sitting in a room with red walls”, “‘Paradise’ focuses on our want to make this life as perfect as we can by finding escape, and the fact that a lot of the time it might appear that the easiest way to do that is to shut the world out: whether that’s from taking something heavy or catfishing online to whatever vices you explore within the four walls of your own space, so as to tackle your demons”.

“‘Paradise’ is about the idea that if heaven and hell exist on earth”, she goes on, “then finding your own heaven here in hell would be the greatest heaven of all”.
