“Trailblazer” By Mylar

Mylar, have released their new EP Elsewhere, via Blue Flowers (Westerman, Nilüfer Yanya, Puma Blue), along with the album’s arrival, the band have shared a new video for “Trailblazer.” “Trailblazer” is directed by Irene Calvo with the song built around an instinctive, sinister, walking bass line.

The band explain:

“It made us think how easy and seductive it can be to follow people blindly. People who are extremely charismatic and who make you feel good by association yet aren’t necessarily very good. The song addresses someone in the wake of realising that you’ve been led on, while wondering if they still have a grip on you. The production has a kind of warped 2000s disco-pop vibe which felt apt as that was a period that seems innocent by today’s standards.”

Mylar’s Elsewhere EP explores the universal vulnerabilities of their internal selves and those around them, surrounded by a world spinning at a different rate.

“Most of the lyrics are about people feeling trapped by circumstance, or having a sense of time running away, or pivotal moments where you’re hyper-aware of the direction things will take,” the band explain.

Elsewhere EP was recorded and produced by Mylar in London and was mixed and mastered in Spain by Iñaki de las Cuevas and Julío Rodríguez Sangrador respectively.

Mylar are made up of Tom Clark (guitar, synth), Rob Janke (drums, backing vocals) Neraj Thangarajah (guitar, keys, vocals) and Tom Short (keys, bass, vocals).

The band have just finished a residency at Laylow and will announce their EP launch at The Waiting Room in Stoke Newington on May 4th.
