Mainland pushes boundaries with new track

Alternative rock trio, Mainland, have resurfaced to the music scene with a thought-provoking tune sure to capture hearts.

The trio released the track “I Found God,” a slower song with heavy percussion to back up the repeated phrase “I found God in your body.” Along with the single is a visual project from the female art duo Similar But Different. The New York-based directing duo, Dani Girdwood and Charlotte Fassler, known for Handmaid’s Tale and Man Repeller.

Not only does the music video promote diversity by showing 12 real-life couples of different ages, races and non-binary genders, but it also adheres to the movement “love is love.” Throughout the four-minute story, these couples are in search for their other half and when reunited with one another, there is an outpouring of happiness.

In a Facebook post, lead singer Jordan Topf expressed his thoughts on the song, explaining how much love went into the making of it.

“I don't think our band has ever put out a song so inherently us,” Topf said. “It's an evolution of what we've always been but at the same time completely new territory.”

Mainland, originally from Los Angeles, California and currently based out of Brooklyn, New York, includes vocalist/guitarist Topf, guitarist/synth player Corey Mullee and bassist Alex Pitta. In 2014, the band released their debut EP, Shiner, followed by the EP Outcast. Over the next few years, a few singles dropped including the popular tunes “Permission Slip” and “Beggars,” both racking up millions of Spotify listens.

Their previous work contains both rock ‘n roll and British new wave influences with funky beats and catchy, danceable lyrics. After being relatively silent over the past year, they’ve returned with a similar yet more defined sound. “I Found God” is the first single off their upcoming album.

Throughout November, the band will be touring with The Wrecks and Technicolor. Catch them at The Space in Hamden, Connecticut on November 14 and New York City’s Mercury Lounge on November 15. For more information, music and tour dates, visit their website.
