Local indie rockers Idle Minds.
Last year, local indie rockers Idle Minds
released their first single, "Blossom,” along with an accompanying music video which features footage of the band playing at Mahall’s 20 Lanes in Lakewood.
This week, the group releases another new single, the catchy “Residuals.” A new 5-song EP, Break Apart the Sun
, comes out on Jan. 21.
Influenced by acts such as Teenage Wrist, Thrice, Basement, Citizen, Superheaven, Can’t Swim, the Story So Far, the band recorded the EP this past June with producer Steve Perrino.
“The EP covers a handful of things like self-accountability, self-sabotage, hope, wanting better, courage, coping, resilience, clarity and trusting the process,” says the band’s Trevor Stout. “Each song is respectively different but feels like an important leg for the overall vibe to stand on. The title, ‘Break Apart the Sun,’ represents more of a feeling rather than a specific meaning. The feeling being that words and actions carry more weight than we realize. At least more than we give ourselves credit for within negative and positive lights.”
