Minas has released a new single, ‘Chatty Patty’.
The track – which hits back at gentrification – is from the Greek/Welsh producer and musician’s upcoming EP ‘Grazes’, set for release 3rd November.
“Chatty Patty came from a day I decided I was annoyed with everything,” he explains. “There’s a spot I was walking past that does banging coffee and food, but it’s in the middle of this area in Cardiff, proper out of place and expensive. It’s pretty much gentrification to a T. I was faced again with confusion for where to put myself. I looked at the people in there and was like, ‘well they’re just out for food but I’m fuming at them’ – proper disillusioned. Once again I was like – ‘what the hell can I do about any of this. Why doesn’t anyone do anything, why are we just letting this all happen? Why ain’t there riots in the streets while the government is screwing us red raw?’ I just wrote Chatty Patty and got it out, in the probably naive hope that it’ll connect with people and maybe we’ll put up with less from the higher ups.”
