Hi, I’m Mignon, wanna play?
Completely written and composed by the mistress of shock rockin’ show tunes herself, Mignon is still pulling the strings on her third full-length release ‘Toys Tantrum’ …
Her box of tricks may come spewing collaborations bloody galore but as always in true genre-shifting tradition, Mignon’s toy gun is cocked, aimed and pointing in a new direction only she can fire…
Has it hit you yet? This is the sound of an artist you couldn’t label or shelve, even if you dared.
Moving even further out of shot from her ‘Bad Girl’ days of metallic-tinged electropop, Mignon has once again defied expectations to deliver a surprisingly new and arresting sound. Armed with a Hondo she resurrected from the backyard graves of East Berlin (heard on ‘Hands of Time’), a waterphone (Google it kids), and a guitar bought in Austin on a 2013 USA road trip, she’s exorcising her demons with an eclectically spookish mix of searing rock ‘n’ roll and Spaghetti Western-esque swagger.
From the feverish 60’s-fuelled shakedown of ‘Make Believe’ and frenetic burn of ‘Bulldog” to the jubilant murder march of ‘Fiesta’ and hauntingly jaunty ‘Ghost of a Memory’ (featuring the one and only Adrian Strout of The Tiger Lillies on the singing saw), Toys Tantrum is a dreadfully addictive play date with one of Germany’s best kept ‘n creepy secrets!
Other album guests include, Fredovic from ‘King Khan and the Shrines’ on the Hammond Organ, the String Quartet most recently noted for their collaboration with Rufus Wainwright, Corwin Hambrick on bass/guitar and Mathias Brendel on Drums.
Toys Tantrum will be released: Fall 2017
Come wind it up and fall under its insanely mischievous spell!
