OF MICE & MEN has released the visualizer for the new song “Indigo”
The track is taken from the band’s upcoming album “Tether”, which is due on October 6 via SharpTone.
OF MICE & MEN bassist/vocalist Aaron Pauley states about the song: “‘Indigo’ is about questioning why the sky would choose to be blue if it had the choice to be anything else — blue also meaning sad. It’s about comforting a loved one in a time of loss by telling them you feel blue, too.”
In a recent talk with Outburn, Pauley discussed OF MICE & MEN‘s mindset while writing “Tether”, saying: “I honestly think it’s chasing the exciting moments when we are collaborating and writing music. It becomes easy, especially as you achieve some success. It’s very easy to choose that as a model, but you end up getting too formulaic with things. Whereas we try to focus on the excitement factor when we’re writing together, and not always just writing exciting sounding songs, but chasing those little moments where a spark of creativity happens where two people’s ideas combined become greater than the sum of both.”
“We wholeheartedly love to create music,” Arteaga added. “We are all musicians at the start of the day, and I believe we all admire and respect each other’s artistic integrity since we are able to be in a creative group or band together. For us, being creative musicians is what keeps us going and the fact that we can bounce ideas off each other. It may not be the most amazing concept, but the exciting part is sharing it and witnessing someone else’s excitement. Then we extrapolate and fall down a few rabbit holes to develop something we never thought was possible. That has been the case since the beginning. Whenever we are writing music or creating something, we use each other as a barometer for excitement.”
OF MICE & MEN are set to hit the road this fall with BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE and VENDED.
