Vancouver’s Alex Little & The Suspicious Minds today share their new video and single “Broken Bones”
Speaking on the track front person Alex Little says, “Broken Bones is a dark yet poppy adventure into the psyche of a serial killer, and the strange obsession we as a culture have with their behaviour. The video by Mat Dunlap perfectly captured our love for new wave and punk while still making something quite uniquely ours.”
“Broken Bones” follows the band’s debut EP No Control, produced by Colin Stewart (Black Mountain, Destroyer). Alex Little & The Suspicious Minds comprises of Little, Andy Bishop (White Ash Falls, Twin River), Cody Hiles (The Zolas), and bassist Mike Rosen. Known for their garage-pop songs that unflinchingly tackle drug addiction, mental health and heartbreak and yet, despite the heavy subject matter, the group’s soaring choruses and loud guitars mean that the mood is cathartic rather than heavy.Little previously played in bands as a drummer, and when she picked up a guitar, she reached out to her friend Andy Bishop (White Ash Falls, Twin River) to teach her a few tricks. Songs began pouring out of them, and drummer Cody Hiles (The Zolas) and bassist Mike Rosen got involved. Together, they honed a sound that blends searing distortion with aching pop hooks and a psychedelic wash of reverb.
