“Let’s go to the beach, kiss the stars goodnight and maybe have a glass or three…” sings newcomer Minque over a twitching synth riff that sounds like it might have just found a place on the debut La Roux album. Whilst her debut song Bones was melancholy night time pop, So Precious, So Small is much more hedonistic – a dance banger that embraces the idea of losing minds, then going one further and losing it all. Yet despite the hands in the air house vibes, Minque retains a sense of cool detached majesty in her vocal delivery, and it’s all the better for it. A party anthem for those who shudder at the idea of ending up in their cities' tackiest nightclub dancing alongside a plastic inflatable penis, tiara and L plates sporting hen party perhaps?. Let’s all go down to the beach and drink some wine instead yeah?
You could do just that when Minque plays a show in Southsea, Portsmouth on Friday 14th October at Drift Bar - it's very close to the beach. Tickets are only £3 (here), so if you are anywhere on the south coast, that’s that Friday night planned for you.
