Jordan Prather and Belinda Peters make up the Tucson-based Head Over Heart — a duo that’s not afraid to be labeled “pop.” And though their sound is pure and excessively listenable, the pop elements are buried in soft sheets of electro production that grow and wane over borderline British indie-rock vocals.
Don’t be fooled by the seamless production, though; their new single “I Don’t Mind” is a sobering sentiment about self indulgence as a means of coping. Prather had this to say about the track:
“I Don’t Mind” is about someone who is conflicted in life, but isn’t aware of it. This person blames the world around them and their past experiences for their current problems. This person’s partner takes drugs to try and fix these issues, and makes romantic decisions that contradict their happiness. Some of the lyrics have dual meaning regarding the singer’s perspective on the failing relationship and their own problems with drugs.
