The Atlanta-based trio, Mansell has released a new single from their debut LP Mantra, available on November 11th. The simmering track’s, “A Note 2 Myself”, lyrics relate to the feeling of wanting to disconnect from the world to the point where you start to drift into isolation.
“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.“
Musically, the track captures the late 80’s and 90’s alternative sound and tonality. “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,” says Fincher.
Mantra was produced and engineered by Jason Hoard, Ryan Wilson, and Mansell themselves. It will be available at all digital retail outlets on Friday, November 11th and is available for pre-order now on iTunes, which includes an instant download of the singles “A Love Immodest” and “Ghost”.
