Swiss shoegazers Moonpools have announced their new EP Hide and Seek, releasing on April 19 via Young and Aspiring. Today they have also shared their brand new single ‘Never Mind’.
‘Never Mind’ has a foundation of thick, layered guitars, with Marcie’s infectious vocal melodies gliding over the top. The video accompanying the track is a cinematic dreamscape of seaside shots overlaid with the band, gradually warping and fragmenting as the song and its distortions build.
Speaking on the new single, Marcie offers: “I wanted to tell a story about someone trying to comfort a friend. They’re trying to show support and express their understanding. But over the course of the song, the comforter realises they don’t believe the words they’re saying and fall into the same hopelessness and indifference they were aiming to help their friend overcome. ‘Never Mind’ is usually the last song of our live-set. It’s a lot of fun to play and we become all consumed by it for the last few minutes of our show.”
