Joy Void is excited to announce their latest signing, Boston’s Mini Dresses. The label will release their debut self-titled LP on September 15, 2017. Tiny Mix Tapes is sharing a new song titled “Fantasy Nails” from the upcoming album, saying ““Fantasy Nails” is summer-sweet and honest, pure and full of heart, like promises made and kept.”. Mini Dresses is currently available for pre-order from Joy Void along with a tape of their previously released EPs and singles, which is available now.
Mini Dresses started as a home recording project between longtime songwriting partners Lira Mondal and Caufield Schnug in the summer of 2012 in Austin, TX. After relocating to Boston to pursue their respective careers, they started playing shows with Luke Reed on drums. In the last five years, they have played frequently on the East Coast, opening for such acts as Deerhunter, Weyes Blood, Fear of Men, Chastity Belt, Palehound, Dick Diver, Tacocat, and many others.
Their first self-titled full-length consists of songs from about two years of recording with engineer Ian Doerr. Taking shape in spaces as varied as a nail salon basement to an expansive live room in a warehouse on the outskirts of Boston, the group took advantage of rarely used effects and tape machines. Lyrical themes of the album involve the interior lives of women, their daydreams, while many songs capture moments of technological breakdown.
