Today, Toronto, ON-based duo The Manic Boys And Girls Club announce their self-titled EP due out July 13. Alongside the announcement, the band shares a brand new taste of the project with single and video ‘We’ll Be Fine’ out everywhere now. The track explores the process of forgiving oneself for past mistakes and wasted time and offers a much-needed sense of hope.
Over five tracks, the duo blend alternative rock and indie pop to forge a path all their own, much like the trajectory of their own lives. Produced by Gavin Brown (Glorious Sons, Hoobastank, Metric, Billy Talent) and engineered by David Mohacsi, the band crafted a collection of five wide-ranging tracks where they experimented with varying sounds and styles like never before. It culminated in a hopeful body of work that rings true to themselves and how they were feeling the moment the music was created. The result is a cathartic release of every emotion that has stirred within them since the band’s inception. Fernando explains the current iteration of the band can be traced back to their roots. “It’s basically the latest version of the same band we started in our parents’ living room, so we’ve really just been on hiatus since elementary school.”
The band offers a new track from the project, ‘We’ll Be Fine.’ The song offers a sense of hope and encourages forgiveness for past mistakes and wasted time. Explaining how the song came about, Fernando explains, “We all live with the mistakes we’ve made. Maybe the tattoo you regret, the relationship you should have never been in, the words you should have said, what you should have not said, or maybe the time we’ve wasted.”
He continues,”‘We’ll Be Fine’ is about letting go of all of those things. I really believe that even when nothing around us makes sense, and as much of a mess as life may seem at times, for whatever reason, we are exactly where we are meant to be. There is a plan for us all.”
The accompanying cinematic music video, directed by Ernie Vasquez, follows a man who decides to walk away from his mundane life in search of something greater. Unbound to a nine to five, he attempts to truly discover freedom and independence. Fernando says, “We wanted this video to illustrate the freedom of letting go of these things that haunt us as we grow.”
