Gearing up to release their new album and hit the road with Hail The Sun and Good Tiger, Equal Vision signees I The Mighty have just dropped their thought-provoking new single “Where The Mind Wants To Go.”
“The concept of this song began with a ‘sick little daydream’ I had while driving along the California coast,” explains frontman Brent Walsh. “It’s commonplace for my mind to wonder about how fragile life is. Sometimes my subconscious slips into the realm of morbid curiosity and I think about how it would take all but a slight move of my arm to send myself cascading into oblivion.”
Walsh continued, “There’s something about that thin red line between normalcy and mortality that has always seemed almost romantic to me. This song toys with the analogy of drifting off in thought and drifting off the road and was written at a time when I was beginning to see faults in my relationship as a splintering crack in my windshield. It’s a deeply personal song for me on the record and its writing was a form of self-therapy for me at the time."
