Mensie’s Dark & Dreamy New Indie


Mensie is an emerging independent singer, songwriter, and producer. The 20-year-old Kazakhstani musician is making her professional solo recording debut in 2024.  The public release of her music marks a new phase in a musical journey that began a decade earlier.

In grade school, Mensie would often write poetry in both Russian and Kazakh. By the age of 10, the young artist was writing her own songs. Eventually, western artists like Melanie Martinez, The Neighbourhood and Lorde would inspire her to compose in English.

“Far From Wanted Close to Lonely” is the brand new single from Mensie, released worldwide via all major streaming services on April 20, 2024. It is the first song from the singer’s forthcoming debut EP, a concept record set in an imaginary lonely hearts bar that shares its name with the single. As the song opens, dark minor-key ambient synths and deep guitar reverb paint a melancholy cinematic scene. Ethereal vocal harmonies float over a downtempo indie beat as the singer offers a dream-like stream-of-consciousness tale of unrequited love.
