Mind Fire‘, the new single from Theo Verney is an immediate toe-tapper; the track has an accessible feel, a craft perfected by other easy-listeners such as Jose Gonzalez and Damien Jurado. The sound is refreshingly organic, bringing rock and roll back to its grass-roots, stepping away from over-production and unnecessary fuzz.

Like Gonzalez and Jurado, Verney‘s voice is not overly aggressive, but it commands the song and sets a sincere tone. That being said, the song’s end brings a searing lead-guitar to the forefront that juxtaposes the easy-going nature of the track. A perfect mix of unpredictably and nostalgic gold.
