Hot Press is proud to premiere the latest track from smallmint's debut full-length project.
Northern Irish indie rockers smallmint are set to release another song from their upcoming debut album, Where We All End Up in the End.
'Synonym' finds the band ripping through a modern pop-punk number reminiscent of Cloud Nothings or Modern Baseball, in a bit of a change in sound for the group.
"The song tackles the idea of being a good or bad person," says frontman Andrew Cameron-Braithwaite.
"I feel like most people like to think of themselves as inherently good deep down, so with this song I approached it from the opposite angle, admitting my shortcomings and saying out in the open that I have done wrong things, things that are objectively perceived as bad."
This is the follow-up to smallmint's previous single 'No Shelter', released back in August. It will also feature on their new LP, recorded over three years with Caolan Austin of Smalltown America Studios.
The band is comprised of members from various parts of Northern Ireland, described as "a collective of musicians shaped by their years of service to the music scenes of Belfast, Glasgow and beyond" in a press release.
