Swiss indie rockers Mindless Crowd have unveiled their latest single, Star Chaser, released on the 4th of October 2023. The single is lifted from their forthcoming album slated for release in 2024. Comprising four close-knit friends who draw inspiration from a diverse blend of 70’s rock, psychedelia and modern pop rock, the band is known for addressing thought-provoking societal themes while infusing their music with hope and fantasy.
‘Star Chaser’ emerged on a starry night when the band members were gazing into the cosmos and began to envision a world beyond the mundane. The track is hypnotic and feels like you are one of those night drives that you wish would go on forever. A warm bassline and driving but delicate drum beat thrum gently, keeping the song pulsing while the other musical elements twinkle above them. The honeyed baritone of the vocalist Julien, reminiscent of The The’s Matt Johnson, croons as he sings of the pursuit of one’s inner star – a wellspring of motivation that propels individuals to reach for the stars, even amidst life’s myriad challenges. Jangly guitars shimmer and glitter, imbuing the track with an ethereal quality that is suitably celestial.
Speaking about the creation of the song, the band members shared: “’Star Chaser’ has opened a door of wonder. The melody came to us in the middle of a starry night, igniting our desire to transcend the boundaries of our everyday existence. We want this track to be an invitation for the listener to gaze skyward and embark on an adventure filled with unlimited possibilities.“
