The follow-up to 2012’s Feed Me Diamonds has long been in the making, but the release of the anthemic Mark Ronson and Peter Wade-produced single, “Hell to Be You Baby,” signals that the new album is imminent! “Let’s get down, here we go” … MNDR wastes no time in getting to the point. In spite of its euphoric house piano and big beat rhythm, the album’s title track takes a broad swipe at the toxicity of self-obsession and the grand illusion spawned in social media and pop culture. Make no mistake, however, this is a clarion call to the dance floor — just please, no selfies.
Indie film fans may pick up a few nods to Trent Harris’s cult classic Beaver Trilogy in the official music video, which features Lawrence Rothman playing the role of MNDR.
