After announcing their debut LP – Heaven’s Entertainment will drop on October 30th, New York dark rock trio My Dear Mycroft have released a new single, Psyche, which we’re delighted to premiere right here on Backseat Mafia today.
Of the new track, the band say “Psyche” was originally inspired by fortune telling and prophecy. Other influences include the sunrise and romantic poetry, especially William Blake and Percy Bysshe Shelley. This song was met with a long case of writer’s block and the minimalism of the lyrics made it particularly difficult to get the right feel. It wasn’t until one dawn when I let go of trying that everything fell into place. The process affirmed the main theme of the song – that of letting go.”
Swathes of synths and echoey guitar lines are the order of the day in Psyche, with the sounds bleeding into eachother as the track moves slowly, inexorably on. Sweeping vocals drape over the top, sugared by these sweet backing harmonies as the track veers between the heart wrenching and the epic. It’s beautiful stuff.
