Of the Sun: video premiere of California cool Miynt's new single

By Doris Daga

Today, Miynt releases her song Of the Sun from her sophomore album. In an exclusive premiere of the accompanying music video, this Scandi cool-girl braces the Nordic tundra while singing to the tune of the sun

Today, Swedish California-breeze, indie sensation Miynt releases the song Of the Sun, a relaxed psychedelic ode to the brighter things in life. A sound influenced by The Beatles, Jim Morrison, BeeGees, and Mazzy Star — this is easy-listening at its finest.


It’s difficult to not sway to the grooving guitar riff of the soft rock resurgence. Miynt, the Stockholm-based singer, describes the inception of the song as surprisingly playful: “I think it was like mid-November or something, and I had this idea of this imaginary hotel called De La Sol, which is the badly spelled Spanish translation of the song title. So I guess it was sort of an escape from reality, basically, while making it. And it was very playful.”
