New Audio: Mantles Old-School, Jangling, New Single “Police My Love”

Bay Area-based quartet Mantles, first received attention with the release of their earliest single “Don’t Lie,” and through the years, the band has gone through a number of lineup changes; in fact, the band went through a massive lineup change as Michael Olivares (guitar, vocals), Justin Loney (lead guitar) and Virginia Weatherby (drums) were joined by Matt Bullimore (bass), a New Zealand native and member of the Oakland, CA-based band Legs and Carly Putnam (keys) to flesh out the material on what would wind up becoming the band’s forthcoming, third, full-length album, All Odds End, which is slated for an October 16 release through renowned indie rock label, Slumberland Records.

Interestingly, the members of Mantles reunited with Papercuts‘ Jason Quever, who produced their aforementioned, attention-grabbing first single. And the result is the jangling, garage rock/New Wave-inspired single “Police My Love,” a song which manages to simultaneously evoke anxiousness and vulnerability — the sort of comes up with a new love, in which you may be desperately afraid of getting hurt yet again.
