WATCH THE VIBRANTLY RETRO VIDEO FOR WIRED MINDS STRANGE KIND OF LOVE HERE
(Los Angeles, CA) November 30, 2015
The MuseBox today announced the premiere of Strange Kind of Love, the vibrantly retro video from Wired Minds, a rising Chicago band inspired by The Stone Roses, The Church, and 80s and 90s British rock. Wired Minds will release their debut EP Saudade at Metro Chicago on Friday, December 11 (8pm/18+). Tickets are now available. A free limited edition three-song EP, Saudade will be a preview of Wired Minds debut full-length record, due out in early 2016. Saudade can be heard on Wired Minds official website.
Formed in 2015, Wired Minds feature reverb-drenched guitars, driving rhythms, and soaring vocals that have earned comparisons to Britpop icons The Stone Roses, 80s post-punkers The Chameleons, and Australian favorites The Church. The band is comprised of lead singer Matthew Kayser, drummer Christian Volpe, and guitarist Fred ONeal. Kaysers former bandmate from Chicagos The Bright White, Joe OLeary, will take a break from fronting local rock favorites She Rides Tigers to play bass for Wired Minds on December 11.
According to Kayser, Saudade is a fitting name for the collection of melancholic and nostalgic songs found on Wired Minds debut EP:
Saudade is a Portuguese word that is meant to express a feeling of longing or nostalgia for a person or place that is no longer attainable. The word perfectly captures the lyrical content of these three songs. This EP is partially the product of a newfound obsession with certain faces and places of my childhood and early adulthood.
December 11 will mark Wired Minds first ever performance on Metros hallowed stage. More information on Wired Minds is available on the bands official website.
