“A Bit Out Of Time” by Mainland

Northern Transmissions' 'Song of the Day' is " A Bit Out Of Time" by Mainland.

Ecstasy and sorrow, post-punk and pop, east and west – all those times when you’re caught in the middle, there’s Mainland. They are the soundtrack to moments of freedom and darkness.

Taking a nod from society’s fellow black sheep (think David Lynch, William Eggleston, and Depeche Mode), Mainland returns with a collection of new tunes and an enigmatic call to arms. A diverse mix of vintage aesthetics and modern pop songwriting/production, Mainland draws from a range of influences to form one unifying anthem loud enough for all of life’s outcasts.

Frontman Jordan sums the track up – ““A Bit Out of Time’ is about losing someone. Displacement, loneliness, loss of the most important people in your life and not knowing how to cope with pain. Only being left to your own devices and your guitar to shine a light when it gets dark.”

Following the release of a new video for their track, “Outcast,” the Manhattan band return today with their new single “A Bit Out Of Time,” from their forthcoming EP, Outcast, out December 4th on 300 Entertainment.
