Grand Blanc comes from that Cold East. Where great cathedrals would mix with blast furnaces. It wouldn’t take long crossing the border when we took the highway. We would listen to old Bashung records, in the 80’s, when France would wear Joy Division’s shirts. We would talk a bit about literature, and a lot about music, we would pray for a nice gig on Saturdays. Or we would go to a match, and pray for at least one goal. Or we would go to the bar. We would avoid somehow going to Mass, but we would not avoid Metz, and our rides would sure wear us out. Some wanted to get their heads into the blast furnace, some others wanted to end up in the great cathedral.

Mina Tindle is a Parisian-born folk and new-wave singer, song-writer and multi-instrumentalist. She appeared as guest vocalist on The National’s acclaimed album Boxer (2007). This was followed by the release of Tindle’s debut solo album Taranta (2012, Believe Recordings) on which she collaborated with JP Nataf, frontman of French pop and new-wave icons The Innocents. The debut garnered her international praise from tastemakers such as Pitchfork and The Line of Best Fit who respectively hailed her sound as “breezily cool” and “combining delicate, heart wrenching vocals with gentle, touching melodies”. While Uncut wrote of her debut: “anthemic, featuring strange, buried electronics which showcase her charming, clever pop” and The Independent compared her “artful leftfield pop” with contemporaries such as Feist. Collectively the singles Bells and Lovely Day , taken from the debut album, received radio play from BBC 6 Music (Tom Robinson), BBC 2 (Chris Hawkins) and BBC Radio London as well as Amazing Radio who invited Tindle in to record a session, while making Lovely Day their ‘Record of the Week’
Now Tindle returns with her follow-up second album Parades (Believe Recordings). The album is co-produced by Olivier Marguerit and Mina Tindle and the majority of tracks were mixed by Craig Silvey (of The National, Anna Calvi, Portishead, Arcade Fire fame). Yann Arnaud (Syd Matters) who recorded the whole record, mixed the rest of the songs.
Parades was mastered by Chab at Translab. Bryce Dessner (The National) recorded, arranged and performed on two tracks L’Astrakan and Taranta.
