Exclusive Track Premiere: ‘Get Him Off Your Mind,’ The Sun Days
Previous releases earned Gothenburg, Sweden-based band The Sun Days comparisons to indie-pop contemporary The Drums, and with the premiere of “Get Him Off Your Mind” below, the comparison rings true. “We started the song with stealing a bass line from The Drums’ ‘Down by the Water,'” Joe Enocsson admits. Though the bass line evolved into something unique to the five-piece, remnants of its origins can still be heard beneath vocalist Elsa Holmgren, as she sings, “Put your troubled face aside / Get him off your mind / He’s a waste of time … Tell me / What do you want to do / with your life / with your time?” As a whole, the track is a perfectly summer-tinged tune that invites listeners into newfound warmth by leaving negative energies (or more literally, people) behind.
Enocsson and Holmgren are joined by Simon Boontham, Erik Bjarnar, and Johan Ramnebrink, and together, The Sun Days collaboratively write each of their songs. “Before we had lyrics [for “Get Him Off Your Mind”], we played the song in a really happy way. It’s always like that—happy demos, sad songs,” Enocsson continues. “Get Him Off Your Mind” marks the second release from the group’s forthcoming nine-track debut LP, simply entitled Album, which will be out via Run For Cover Records on March 25, 2016.
