Manchester experimental/noise duo Mandy, Indiana have dropped their new single “Injury Detail“, and its accompanying video.
The song is out now via Fire Talk, and is their first new music since the release of 2021’s acclaimed ‘…’ EP. Grab it here.
Valentine Caulfield and Scott Fair (guitar/production) met three years ago when their respective previous bands shared a bill in Manchester. Together they meld experimental noise and dance music, from drum machine snaps and pulsing bass to white noise and lo-fi scuff.
Produced by Fair and Robin Stewart of Giant Swan, “Injury Detail” is a dramatic reintroduction, opening with a grand organ before morphing into a thumping dance track fit for a warehouse rave. “‘Injury Detail’ was inspired by the idea of being trapped in a liminal space, with the guitars creating a seemingly limitless and undefined landscape. The vocals act as a guide to possible salvation, or perhaps something of a more sinister intent,” explains Caulfield.
The pair also enlisted Liam Stewart (percussion), a touring musician who’s powerhouse rhythmic presence compliments the pair’s vision—emphasizing raw energy and emotion over meticulous composition to create a singular cathartic experience.
