Nashville-based indie singer/songwriter Jordan Lindley launched his debut album Pearl in 2021, introducing a deft stability of indie rock aesthetics, pop songwriting instincts, and confessional lyrical voice. Since his debut, Lindley has been comparatively quiet as he labored on his follow-up EP, Possibly It’ll All Work Out, Pt. 1, due out this November. The EP additionally finds Lindley pairing with producers Jake Finch and Collin Pastore (Lucy Dacus, boygenius, Illuminati Hotties). Final month, Lindley shared the document’s lead single, “Lydia,” and at this time he’s again with one other new monitor, “Mud,” premiering with Below the Radar.

“Mud” is a extra tense and minimal effort than Lindley’s earlier single, revolving round an insistent rumbling guitar line and Lindley’s stream-of-consciousness supply. Although Lindley builds the monitor out with some marching drums and needling guitar traces, his vocals stay the spotlit heart level as he explores the push of post-breakup feelings in searing element. He begins in a downcast and remoted mode, alternating between anger and pleading for a lover to remain: “Don’t be variety sufficient to go away me / I’m so in love, I don’t want you to like me / Don’t go, lease’s cheaper the longer we’re in it / You’ll remorse it / Possibly you gained’t.”

Later within the monitor, the guitars flip much more muted and menacing, a tone Lindley matches with the tune’s closing lyrics: “If you get shut / I’ll be a mouse entice / Disintegrate you / You deserve that / I can’t wait.” Lindley’s lyrics render the monitor in visceral element, sharing the darkish, bitter, and susceptible innermost ideas that may bubble up amidst heartbreak.

He says of the monitor, “‘Mud’ is a tongue-in-cheek internal monologue that I skilled on an actual bummer day. It’s particular to me as a result of it’s stream of consciousness in my voice as an individual, not as a singer or an artist. It’s petty, it’s excessive, it’s pointless, but it surely’s very real to how I used to be feeling at the moment. As a human being, the way in which by which we course of or work by way of one thing just isn’t all the time so clear minimize; I really feel like this tune captures that in a extremely palatable, trustworthy method.”

Try the tune beneath, out in every single place tomorrow, July 14th. His new EP, Possibly It’ll All Work Out, Pt. 1, is due out this November.
