Minemice is a synthwave artist based in the Netherlands. His music is inspired by the retro-electro sounds of the 80s and his love of cyberpunk. Both the album art and music on his latest album, “Daybreak” draw influence from suburban environments and childhood nostalgia.
“Plattenbau is the German word for a building whose structure is constructed of large, prefabricated concrete slabs.”
Minemice is also a graphic designer and 3D artist. The album art was created in collaboration with him. We wanted to represent everything the album was about in one symbol. Together, we chose the staircase of the plattenbau, laden with greenery, to reflect the relationship between natural and manmade environments; change and permanence.
