Wexford – “Change Your Mind”

Artwork by Sean Carrol

A blistering wave of guitar distortion and impassioned vocals stir on “Change Your Mind,” a track from Wexford that builds with a climactic stirring throughout. The Sandusky, Ohio-based quartet meld alt-rock, post-hardcore, and punk influences for a hard-rocking vigor. Production from Shawn Patrick Thomas Daley highlights the dynamic vocal fervency, aligning well with stampeding percussive fury following the initially introspective rise.

“You couldn’t take the time, to somehow change your mind,” resonates lyrically like a sighing ethos, lamenting what could have been. The track kickstarts with a sweltering array of guitars, and then introduces a vocals that depict a world that is “yours today,” though where stubbornness and self-doubt hampers potential. The “moving forward,” prog-rock guitars and vocal vibrancy further the excitement. “Change Your Mind” stirs melodically and in its thematic pursuits, which the band describe as “a driving anthem to the goalless wandering and self doubt in one’s life.”

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Emerging Singles’ Spotify playlist.
