Yard Arms just released their latest single, ‘Mantra‘, giving fans of the band yet another aspect of their sound to fall in love with. ‘Mantra‘ has a lighter sound than previous releases yet still holds the very essence you’ve come to love from them. Lyrically the song tackles the apprehensive nature of things falling apart while normalizing this process and letting the listener know that it’s okay. The chorus takes on elements of Shoegaze with its almost hypnotic, dreamlike, floating haze. Here’s how Lyricist and frontman Noah Villeneuve described ‘Mantra‘:
triumphant love letter to the anxious
That much is evident as the balance between the upbeat music and the tension of the lyrics not only blends perfectly in balance but also gives off an air of hope. Given that ‘Mantra‘ is the debut single off their upcoming EP ‘Sanctuary Lines‘, I can’t wait until we get to hear more off this EP. You can listen to ‘Mantra‘ down below.
