Swedish outfit Rotten Mind release cold-blooded new single ‘Serpent Eyes’.

Sitting somewhere between The Vibrators and Christian Death, this gothic-punk group is making waves outside of their Nordic home base

The freshly released single is from Rotten Mind‘s fifth album “Unflavored” and the first taste of new music since their 2020 album “Rat City Dog Boy“. The Swedish punk rock outfit also recently recruited a new bass player in Liz Panella, (Earth Girls, Siamese Twins).

Jakob Arvidsson (Guitar/Vocals) from the band comments on ‘Serpent Eyes’: “The song is about feeling out of step with the world. Feeling like you’re an alien everywhere you go, and trying to see society in your own way to get by.

“The track was recorded by Kristofer Jönson at studio Turbinen in Uppsala. It’s a natural development of our sound, going for a darker and bigger soundscape which you could already hear glimpses of on previous songs like ‘Fyrisån‘ or ‘Not One of You‘ from the album “Rat City Dog Boy”.

The song has a vibe to it that is similar to The Cure, and would fit in with your punk, new wave playlist.

Besides the new single and member, Rotten Mind also announces a 14 date European tour, supporting their upcoming album ”Unflavored” which will be out on March 18th 2022.

”Serpent Eyes” is out now on all streaming platforms via Lövely Records.
