Returning with their first new single of 2021, Liverpool four-piece The Mysterines are sharing their newest track ‘In My Head’.
“‘In My Head’ appears to be a love song, but that was not the original intention,” vocalist Lia Metcalfe explains. “I did want it to superficially be seen as that, but in reality it’s a song about people who struggle with their mental health. Partly autobiographical, it’s about how sometimes life can feel like you’re being haunted by something out of your control.”
Ushering in the group’s new era, their debut album is now set to follow soon. “Anyone who has ever been granted the opportunity to record a debut album understands that this situation could be deemed as ‘bad timing’,” Lia notes. “Instead, I like to refer to it as ‘almost perfect timing’. Nothing seemed more fitting than to record an album about self destruction whilst the world itself entered into what seemed like a brief apocalypse.
“As a band, we were really grateful to still be able to create during such bleak times. Our wonderful producer Catherine Marks, who put everything she had into the record, turned my songs into perfect pictures of themselves, with both the most frightening and beautiful reflections.”
