Before Austrian electronic-pop duo MYNTH — brother-and-sister Mario and Giovanna Fartacek — released their second album, Parallels (Seayou Records), we met up with the twins during lunch time in New York City’s Madison Square Park.
What’s so enticing about their sound is their unique ability to speak volumes in under four minutes. Giovanna’s vocals are captivating and intense, and it blends perfectly with Mario’s beats, engaging grooves and lush instrumentation.
As pooches romped around the dog run, squirrels scurried for nuts and hungry office workers queued up at Shake Shack, we chatted on a park bench about the evolution of their songwriting style, musical progression on their sophomore album, live show (which now includes a drummer) and plans for the future.
