Rolly Mingwald

While known for extensively varied styles of music, a new persona emerges, Rolly Mingwald, who pulls inspiration from the culture he loved growing up - the music, the films, the cars - “80s everything” as he puts it. As well as taking inspiration from the past, he looks to the present and beyond; to those creating contemporary music modeled after decades-old hardware and music genres. 

Rolly Mingwald's debut EP, "THE NEW GIRL" tells a story of just that. A new girl in a new town, filled with nervousness, yet teeming with excitement - a concept album that explores the the new experiences of hesitant laughter, guilt-ridden happiness, and the stomach-churning anxiety that sometimes comes along with forming new relationships.
