London-based newcomers Sad Boys Club are honing in on their own brand of ephemeral indie-rock through their anthemic new cut ‘Your Mind (Makes Mine Seem Fine)’. Featuring a plethora of extraordinary instrumentation, the track utilises pulsing synths and soaring Matt Healy-esque vocals to lend an introspective element to their lyrics.
Heavily reminiscent of an early The 1975 song, ‘Your Mind (Makes Mine Seem Fine)’ paints a narrative of the internal struggle of being stuck between being cemented in the past and being too focussed on the future, that you forget where you are currently.
Having recently signed to Modern Sky UK (The Lathums, The Blinders etc) it’s no doubt that the boys will be back with even more thrilling and immersive soundscapes.

Speaking on the track, lead singer Jacob Wheldon notes: “I look at the past to remember who I am and towards the future to become who I hope I could be, between the two I forget to exist, even more so this last year than usual. With ‘Your Mind’ I wanted something kind of violent, alive, present – on the brink of total collapse or at the moment of evolution. To reset the circuit, wake up and make sure I wasn’t getting out the other end of this year’s tunnel only to find it had gone full circle.”
With festival slots including Dot To Dot, Liverpool Sound City and 100 Above, it won’t be long until Sad Boys Club are dominating stages across Europe.
