Mint Simon, the front person for Caveboy just released the video for their latest single, “Some of Everything”. The song and video are a reminder to the gender fluid community that labels are not needed to validate a person’s existence.
The music video is directed by Mathieu Samson, a visual depiction of someone who struggles with their own identity being haunted by their gendered past. Each scene represents different times when you hid your true identity to appease a loved one, or to be accepted in society.
“This is a song I wish I had to sing along to when I was younger,” says Simon. “I feel like I have tapped into my true self through this song and video, and I cannot imagine feeling happier and proud about something than I do about this. Playing my own love interest was a metaphor in itself, and I feel so excited for the world to see what we created! I got to finally live out my 90s fantasies sonically and visually and I think that’s pretty freakin cool.“
While only two singles in, Mint Simon has already garnered support from some of the industry’s best. Following the release of their debut single “Used For Love”, Mint was supported by Apple, Amazon, Kaltblut, MTV, CBC Music, CBC Radio One, Exclaim!, and more. The Reviews Are In stated, “The Caveboy front-person steps into the solo spotlight and goes into some real feelings with a catchy pop presentation. It’s acceptance and openness and free. And it’s a jam.”
Mint Simon is the brainchild of Caveboy front person Michelle Bensimon. Born and raised in Montreal, Mint is a theatre kid, turned band lead, turned pop star living somewhere on the gender spectrum between Cher and Prince. This debut solo project sees Mint’s new musical romance unfolding, and their soul spilling out. The new music is a sonic and lyrical exploration on love, missed opportunities, desire and sexual liberation.
As the front person of Montreal’s Caveboy, Michelle and their bandmates have built a strong fanbase and media interest across North America. The trio has played sold out shows in Toronto and Montreal, and captivated audiences with their electrifying performances at SXSW, Osheaga, Pride Toronto, the Pre-GRAMMY Celebration of Canadian Excellence, the JUNO Gala Awards, Halifax Pop Explosion, M for Montreal; as well as support performances for Japanese Breakfast, Tash Sultana, Ria Mae, Cub Sport, and Wintersleep. Caveboy’s songs have been heard in Orange Is The New Black, The New Romantic, Killjoys, Happiest Season, and Jump, Darling. Visit their website at: Mint Simon
