Comprised of frankly adorable husband and wife team Keith and Hollie Kenniff, Mint Julep is shoegaze done right. Don't take our word for it. You can listen to their single—a cover of When In Rome's "The Promise"—premiering right here, right now.
Keith said about the track, "How the song started was that I had heard it on a radio station playing hits from the '80s a couple of years ago and for some reason I had never heard it growing up." Naturally he brought it home to his beloved. "I told Hollie about this song I heard and she knew it very well and loved it. We wanted to try and do a cover of a song for a while but were looking for something that hadn't been overdone and a song that we could put a new spin on." Certainly, it's all that and more.
