Atlanta indie rock trio Mansell will be releasing an eight-track effort, titled Mantra, on November 11. Following singles “Ghost” and “A Love Immodest,” we have the privilege of sharing another single from the album, titled “A Note 2 Myself.” Calling to mind genre favorites like Two Door Cinema Club and Givers, Mansell’s newest single is easy listening with loads of melody and a little bit of groove. You can check it out below to experience it for yourself.
“This is just a song for daydreaming,” says vocalist/guitarist Holden Fincher. “It’s sort of a running joke about how vague or in my head I can be and this is sort of musically and lyrically narrating the act of that. The ending lyrics represent the disconnect within yourself or your world that often leads to the desire to escape or drift. That drift becomes isolation as time passes leaving you wishing to attach more with your heart and other people more than with your mind over-analyzing every part of itself.”
Touching more on the musical aspects of the single, Fincher adds, “The guitars and bass tones harbored more from the vibe of bands like Slowdive, My Bloody Valentine, and the Smiths. We wanted a rawness that was still beautiful and came with a bit of shimmer naturally.”
Mantra is due out on November 11 through Eirene Dreams and can be pre-ordered now through iTunes.
