A long-time fan of Asha Puthli, Madboy/Mink cite her as one of their numerous influences on their latest EP Persons.Elastic.Superior.Fantastic (PESF). “The first time I heard Asha Puthli's music I was just bowled over by the texture and beauty in her voice and delivery. The musicality and sonic character of those records is also really exciting. Also as I dug deeper into her more obscure albums, I realized the versatility that was at play here," says Madboy, aka Imaad Shah.
