TUNE Mutant-Thoughts - Breaking Views
Bristol-based cerebral rock trio Mutant-Thoughts are a band devoted to a new kind of musical fusion and sonic experimentation - and their latest release Breaking Views is certainly no exception.
With a sound that straddles everything from British progressive rock, sweeping 80’s synth-scapes and classic Latin American Guaguancó rhythms, the band are now drawing on their diverse approach to present a new anthem for challenging times.
Breaking Views is a celebration of cultural diversity and a patchwork of different musical places and eras.
A fretless bass line set against syncopated drums and hip-swinging toms steadily builds to a soaring chorus, before bringing the listener down to an intimate Spanish-spoken reverie that kicks into an epic arpeggiator-fuelled breakdown.
The chorus refrain ‘I will try, not to lose it all this time’ is a comment on the progress made in becoming kinder and more tolerant towards each other, but also how easily this progress can be lost.
The song feels like a journey in hyper-modernity - a kaleidoscopic vision of a more integrated future - and sounds reminiscent while remaining completely original, like a Deja Vú. Groovy, gutsy and powerfully optimistic Breaking Views is Mutant-Thoughts hitting new heights.
This three-piece band has created a sound resembling a full orchestral suite, Breaking Views is a song that needs to be heard & to be believed.
"Mutant-Thoughts live up to their name and then some with Unwanted Song, making something that’s a brilliant Frankenstein of different genres." - Reyt Good Magazine
"With their blend of “latin grooves” and Rock, they surely do show diversity in the alternative crowd." - Midnight Riot
