Say Sue Me – “Mind Is Light”

The esteemed Korean indie rockers Say Sue Me are about to tour the US. Ahead of their visit, they’ve released a wonderful new tune called “Mind Is Light,” a propulsive shimmer that drives steadily ahead from clean clarity into dreamy distortion. Yes, they still remind me of Yo La Tengo, and yes, I still love that about them.

The band’s Sumi Choi explains, “We wanted to make a simple song like the early songs of Say Sue Me. I wish I could take my mind lightly, but it easily becomes heavy. I thought about how to lighten my mind. First of all, I walk outside and BELIEVE that my heart is light. Second, I think it doesn’t matter if it’s not true.”
