Folk giocattoloso, sperimentalismi vocali ed ambientali, elettronica domestica. Queste sono le coordinate di base del viaggio da poco intrapreso da Mina e Martina, da Roma, con il loro breve ma piacevole lavoro di debutto Let Children Be Children Again: cinque tracce continuamente in bilico tra la dimensione strumentale /sperimentale e quella più pop-oriented.
Le due donzelle armate di glockenspiel, groovebox, piano e chitarra acustica danno fondo ad un background musicale costellato da nomi come Air (le armonie di Submarine), gli ultimissimi Mùm (i limpidi arpeggi di Celtic Thoughts) e rimandi avant a là Laurie Anderson (gli incastri di voci in Submarine).
Cinque quadretti elettroacustici che donano freschezza e bucolica armonia, ma che ogni tanto pagano qualche ingenuità, soprattutto nelle parti in cui il cantato guadagna spazio all'interno della composizione.
Nonostante ciò, Let Children Be Children Again è sicuramente una buona occasione per fare il punto e calibrare nuove traiettorie per voli da spiccare in completa solitudine.


Playful folk, ambient and vocal experiments, homemade electronic music. These are the primal coordinates for this adventure recently undertaken by Mina e Martina, from Rome, Italy, - with their brief but not less pleasant debut work Let Children Be Children Again: five tracks always swinging between an instrumental/experimental dimension and a more pop-oriented side.
These two damsels, glockenspiel armed, plus groovebox, piano and acoustic guitar, go along a music background, under a constellation of names such as Air (the harmonies in Submarine), latest Mùm (Celtic Thoughts' limpid arpeggio) and avant referencies à là Laurie Anderson (the voices crossing in Submarine).
Five electro-acoustic portraits, strong of freshness and bucolic balance, but which, now and then, pay a tribute to a certain girlish naivety, especially in those episodes where vocals are to the fore.
Notwithstanding that, Let Children Be Children Again is for sure a good chance to make the point, and balance new flight paths, to take to the way for the sky, in a complete solitude.

not yet, probably nobody cares, or nobody cared enough to tell something. Also: nobody reads komakino.
