Sometimes it’s hard to distinguish Fable and Fantasy from reality. Enter a dreamlike world with Mint’s fourth full length album, where surreal vocals will pull you away from the everyday reality of field recordings. In this hybrid place, there is no dichotomy. Only beautiful electronic truth.

7/10 Staff review, 02 September 2015

Hello. The soft, Casio cadences of opener ‘Returning To Light’ almost tricks you into thinking that this is an post-80s balladeer feast, prime for a star spangled guitarist to emerge from the neon mist. But no, the layers build, and you’re in an expansive land of ambient pop, where voices work some soothing magic through electronic fog. Sort of like a neon mist actually, and the more of Fable and Fantasy that you hear, it sort of is along those halcyon trace lines - slightly simplistic melodic situations that are heavy on those classic keyboard sounds, updated for modern beatmaking and layered atmospheres. Pianos echo away sorrowful songs and acoustic guitars pull off a glassy, augmented strum. There’s a lot of heart-sleeve abrasion here, so prepare for late night tears with some white lightning and tissues.

It sort of reminds me of some KScope stuff, like later Anathema but nowhere near as cheez; North Atlantic Oscillation but with the prog replaced with pop and adept 90s chillout electronics. ‘The Phantom Tollbooth’ is like Bryan Adams meets Boards of Canada. I’m partially joking. Goodbye.
