Here at Independent Music News, we don’t shy away from praising our favourite music-making locations. Liverpool, Brighton, Manchester, all undeniable hotbeds for melodic greatness. Another of our beloved hubs is the inimitable city of Bristol, from which so many great artists emerge each year. One such band is Mutant-Thoughts, and they’ve just brought out a brand new single called Breaking Views.
For a rock three-piece, this act sounds incredibly large and features some of the most unique textural elements I’ve heard in quite some time. It’s hard to describe the band using words, but I’m going to try. Breaking Views lays its foundations in the realm of traditional alternative rock, and then sprinkles a whole host of eclectic influences on top. With Latin American rhythms, ’80s synthesizers and ’70s prog-rock all rolled up into a ball of musical brilliance, this is a song that deserves every bit of praise and attention it gets. Lyrically, the track concerns itself with the subject of progress, which reflects the fact that the tune refuses to stay in one lane for more than a few seconds.
With their previous work receiving a lot of praise across the UK, Mutant-Thoughts are on an upward trajectory, and it doesn’t look like they’re going to come down any time soon.
