With the release of the Out of The Ordinary album, Mindwipes takes a fresh approach to some classic genres and gives the record a life all its own. Lush with addictive progressions, a soulful vocal approach, and classic rock undertones, the record boasts the aesthetic of indie rock anthems. 

The first single, “One of Us Is Them", immediately grabs you with it's infectious guitar hook, followed by it's building arrangement allowing it to build and breathe as it plays on.


"The single strikes a jubilant and upbeat stride despite the theme of pervading paranoia in modern life. This juxtaposition between straightforward, rock instrumentation and dark lyrical content is intentional. The song might actually be described as creepy, if it wasn’t so catchy. From the majority perspective, rooting out non-believers is a happy and exciting activity that affirms their world-view. They believe they are doing a service to society. But from the perspective of those that don’t share the majority’s beliefs, this is a terrifying process that makes them feel like there is no one left to trust; everyone is hiding behind a mask, and you never know who is listening." explains songwriter Cameron Schultz of the bands single.

Although the single speaks volumes for the album, to get a real understanding of where Mindwipes is coming from, it should be heard in its entirety.

 

"This record has established our sound as low-fi, indie, garage rock. It’s fuzzy, raw, and extremely personal. I think that I want to keep all of those elements around for the next project, but I’d like to do it up more and really pull out all the stops to express myself. This record showed what we can do with a couple of guitars, a drum set, and a slightly busted keyboard on no budget. I would love to really ramp up the production value on the next one while still maintaining the raw and emotional heartbeat that gives this music so much soul." says Schultz of creating the record.
 

Birthed as the brainchild of songwriter Cameron Schultz, Mindwipes came to be in the winter of 2018 soon after the breakup of a previous band dubbed Yard Art. The band came to fruition during Schultz's attandace at Arizona State university in 2014. Yard Art performed shows around the greater Phoenix AZ area but later went on hiatus due to band differences. It was that winter of 2018 that the songwriter would end up writing and recording 30 song demos. Isolating himself and focusing on songwriting became an introspective process and important part of what was to come. 

 

In May of 2019, Schultz flew back to PA to visit with family, and while there he ran into an old friend Mike Rogers who knew a producer with a small studio space. The producer—John Banes—was immediately taken with the whole project and this led to the recruitment of multi-instrumentalist and close friend Scott Dabundo to the project to fill out keys and backing vocals. The three of them (Schultz, Rogers, and Dabundo) with the help of Banes recorded 8 songs in 3 weeks at breakneck pace. By the end of the process the album Out of the Ordinary was born.

 

Out of The Ordinary is available now for streaming and downloads on most major digital outlets and the band is currently looking for new members to fill the line-up for live performances.
