Mind Museum: the Bristol-based 3 piece who have been impressing audiences up and down the UK with their great songs and a fire and passion that really comes through in the music. Two critically acclaimed EP’s and loads of shows (with the likes of Young Guns, Casino, Twin Atlantic and The King Blues) later the band are releasing a new single called ‘Lie To Me’ through all digital outlets on August 27th.
The song – the video for which you can check out below – is a heady slice of emotive alt rock, full of the band’s trademark melody, power and Justin Percival’s outstanding voice. The band, completed by Will Slater on guitar and drummer Chas Bacon make a hell of an accomplished noise for a three piece – with Lie To Me being topped off with a crowning glory of a solo!
In the words of songwriter Will: “Lie To Me is all about perception and realisation. It’s about how other people perceive you, versus the reality of who you really are. But ultimately, it’s about how we perceive ourselves. The lies we tell ourselves and then the dawning realisation that the hopes and dreams you spent your life trying to achieve aren’t going to come true. The frustration and angst is expressed in the music.”
The video for the single has been directed by photographer (and Midlands Rocks very own photo editor) Paul Broome (broomephoto.com) – who has been working with the band since their inception. The video picks up on the schizophrenic content of the song. The idea of a double life between our perceived selves and real selves. This is perfectly expressed in the flickering costume changes, the voyeuristic camera angles and surreal dreamlike colour palette of the video.
