Last year, we were introduced to Utrecht-based Wicklow artist Bobby Mink AKA Comfy Coffin via debut single ‘Content as a Cog‘. Sixteen months on, Mink has caught our attention again with the homespun, electro-leaning pop of ‘Lifetime Achievement Award’. Paired with its b-side – the cosy, Postal Service-conjuring ‘All Smiles’ – the self-proclaimed “lonely one man band” is clearly in inspired form. Stream the tracks – as well a live acoustic version of the a-side, and a music video for the b-side – below.
The self-proclaimed “lonely one man band” of Utrecht-based Wicklow man Bobby Mink, the music of Comfy Coffin stems from a place slap-bang between instantly accessible and brilliantly left of center. New single ‘Content as a Cog’ finds Milk – who is currently seeking a drummer in the Amsterdam area – in inspired form, layering everything from harp and squeezebox over fuzzed-out guitar and bass to deliver a track bursting with real alt-pop finesse and resourcefulness. Better still, the video kicks several shades of ass. Have a peek.
