Minuit began as a guitar band with lead vocalist, Ruth Carr, on drums. Ryan Beehre bought a sampler and turned the band electronic, replacing the need for a drummer and putting Ruth out front as vocalist. An inspired outcome. The band released four self-released EPs, Sonic Experience (1998), Silver (1999), Luck (2000) and Except You (2002).
In 2003, the band released their debut album The 88 on Tardus music. This was followed by The Guns EP in 2004, and album The Guards Themselves in 2006. Their latest album, Find Me Before I Die A Lonely Death.com features the single "Aotearoa", which was used in an episode of Bones, and as the background theme to TVNZ's Heartland channel.
The members of Minuit are Ruth Carr (vocals), Paul Dodge and Ryan Beehre (machines).
