While we were all preparing to celebrate the end of another year and the start of another one, Nina Hynes closed a long musical chapter of her life and opened a new one of her own. In the last days of December 2012, Hynes released her fourth album, the first as from Dancing Suns, a collaborative project with her husband Fabien Leseure with the help of Sean Carpio. The album was crafted with the help of Fundit finances, features 27 musicians and was recorded Celbridge, Berlin and Brussels.

Goldmine is the ambitious outcome. Following the idea of a story that takes place during the last days of the world, Hynes, Leseure and their collaborators create a fantastical world of sound. That the ambitious plan is to make a film of the story isn’t surprising considering its cinematic grandeur.

It’s been over a year now since Nina HynesGoldmine project became 100% funded and since then the Berlin-based musician has been honing the album with her partner Fabien Leseure with loving care. h resulting album is so much a collaborative effort that she’s decided to name the project Dancing Suns. It’ll be released to the world on the 28th of December 2012 and sent to the funders first. It features 27 musicians and was recorded in Celbridge, Berlin and Brussels. I’ve had a few listens to a non-mastered version, it’s an uplifting album with its own aesthetic, world and atmosphere.

The he idea for the record is a story. A folk story that takes you to the last days of the world through the deep west carrying the nostalgia of a 1970’s French art film. The dream is to first play the album live with an orchestra and a choir and then to make the film of the story Goldmine.

And here is the first single from Goldmine and the first song on the album which is released today. Nina describes it as “a proclamation of the joy of life, about taking the reins in to one’s own hands and lifting the spirits beyond the weight of the earth.”

It’s a song filled with a lot of joy and triumph. A beautiful first look into the Goldmine.
