New Release: Mt. Joy – Acrobats

Mt. Joy have surprise released another new single from their forthcoming second album Rearrange Us.

It’s a curveball from the very beginning: As the tension of the intro washes away, the band’s frontman Matt Quinn provides instructions familiar to anyone prone to panic attacks – “Realize your surroundings / Count five things in the room” – before it erupts back into a switch-blade rhythm and cascading piano lines.

Listen below…

Speaking about the emotive subject matter behind this one, Quinn himself shares: “’Acrobats’ is a song about walking yourself back from the ledge during a panic attack. We didn’t intend it to be apropos of any particular moment, but we hope it gives you power to roll with the punches.”
