Susi Wittig aka Like Mint has poetry in mind: For two years now, the Berlin-by-choice from the Erzgebirge mountains has been carrying songs through the country whose subtle truthfulness makes entire spaces float. It is a gentle, sincere melancholy that makes these songs so touching between indie folk and songwriter ingenuity – Like Mint joins the new sensitivity of singers like Lucy Rose, Phoebe Bridgers and Billie Marten and stands on the shoulders of indie giants like Bon Iver, Sufjan Stevens or José Gonzales. All this can be experienced live – the encounter with the audience creates a conversation that leaves room for the listener, with wonderful songs that Like Mint sings in a great balance between open-hearted feeling and enchanting discretion. The melancholy is not deeply sad, but somehow refreshing, hence the name.
On U-NITE she can be seen as a trio.
