BNQT - Mind Of A Man
BNQT have shared their latest single ‘Mind Of A Man’, a late 60’s / 70’s sounding melodic folk-rock tune taken from their forthcoming album Volume 1 – it has immediate appeal, and certainly worth a listen.
BNQT is a sort of supergroup, consisting of members from Band Of Horses, Grandaddy, Franz Ferdinand, Travis, and Midlake, with Fran Healy (Travis) on lead vocals for ‘Mind Of A Man’: “When I presented ‘Mind of a Man’ to the guys, at that stage just a piano and vocal demo, they asked me for any thoughts I may have for a vibe or direction,” Healy explains. “I told them I would prefer to sit and watch them do it all with a caveat that I would make a noise if it was going in a direction I felt wasn’t right… but they are such accomplished musicians and have this gate only people who have played for decades together have, I knew it would be cool. And it was. The song is about how fucking dumb men can be.”
Volume 1 is released 28 April via Bella Union.
