Minuit (min-wee), the Kiwi band with the French name, are jigglin' hips in Berlin and beyond. The group are back in the country and have finished recording their new album; Find Me Before I Die A Lonely Death dot com out now through Tardus Music.
When this trio released their debut, The 88 in 2003, no-one predicted the success of the debut, nor how warmly it would be received - until it sold gold.
After this, Minuit followed up with the Guns EP, a limited run that sold out in the first week. In 2006 they released their second album, The Guards Themselves, featuring tracks Fuji, Suave As Sin, and underground club anthem A Room Full Of Cute.
Having embarked on three ribcage rattling OEs, this live indie-electronic three-piece have played alongside The Chemical Brothers, The Crystal Method, Adam Freeland, Stanton Warriors, Plump DJs, and crunched hi-end PAs in Berlin, Finland, Russia, Fabric, London and LA.
In Europe, Minuit caught the ear of Radio 1's Annie Nightingale who asked the band to record a 30 minute special for her show on Radio 1 at the BBC Maida Vale studios...
