Swedish Punk Rock outfit Rotten Mind have launched their new single ”Visitor in the Present”. This single, alongside the track ”Pointless Love” released earlier this year, was recorded at the same time as Rotten Mind‘s latest, fifth studio album Unflavored, from 2022. With a mixture of Gothic Post Punk and 60‘s Garage Rock, ”Visitor in the Present” takes a different path than what the band have done before.
Jakob Arvidsson (guitar/ vocals) comments on the new single:
‘Visitor in the Present’ is about feeling like you‘re outside of everything. When others seem to fit right in, you feel like you don‘t belong at all. I was listening to a lot of 60‘s garage rock when I wrote this song. We wanted to do something that had that feeling as well as being gothic at the same time.
We‘re super happy to finally release these two songs. They were recorded at the same time as the “Unflavored” album but we chose to do something else with them since the record felt done with the other songs. As you‘ll probably hear they‘re quite different from what we usually do.
