Alternative Rock | Label: Equal Vision Records

For ten years, San Francisco’s I the Mighty has been going strong. While maintaining the same lineup, the group has managed to carve out a niche within the saturated post-hardcore, alternative rock scene distinctly their own. Highly influenced from genre-bending bands like Coheed and Cambria, I the mighty have always shown the same fearlessness with every release. Whether it is a ballad or a fiercely fast paced guitar driven song, the group sounds equally at home. With the release of their third LP, Where The Mind Wants To Go / Where You Let It Go, I the Mighty show no signs of slowing.

Where The Mind Wants To Go / Where You Let It Go opens up with an intense and declarative track, “Degenerates”, which serves as a mission statement for the entire record. As the song crescendo’s frontman Brent Walsh emphatically voices, “I think I found my place!” This search for purpose, while navigating through anxious self-awareness, troubled relationships and the desire to seek the present, is laced throughout the record. However, even with the heavy existential themes, the record doesn’t get dreary or too self-indulgent. In fact it’s rather the opposite; the powerful chorus’s, vocal hooks, buttery guitar leads, and energetic rhythms provide a musical backdrop that helps elevate the sense of optimism in the restlessness of Walsh’s lyrics. It’s easy to take for granted how impressive the cohesiveness of the record really is – a natural yet distinctively untethered flow that still maintains the sense of uneasiness with living through young-adulthood. Almost every track is single worthy: “Escapism”, “Chaos in Motion and “Pet Names” all could’ve been released as singles. The fact that they weren’t – and that the singles released are exceptional as well – is a testament to both Walsh’s honesty as a lyricist and the band’s ability to capture all of these feelings over the course of an eleven track record.

Though I the Mighty’s transition from heavier early days has been continuously excellent, the band still gravitates to certain things musically that feel out of place and occasionally repetitive. On “Silver Tongues”, the bands first single that features Tillian Pearson from Dance Gavin Dance, the verse groove feels chaotic and mismatched with the straight forward chorus; more akin to slapping water rather than swimming through it. While it is a subjective annoyance in an otherwise fantastic song, it is these kinds of stylistic habits and comfortable spots that are sprinkled throughout the album that fill the gap between “band who is executing at their peak”, to “band that is on the precipice of something special”. The reliance on open syncopated verses and heavy half time chorus’s also tends to muddy the impact of each individual song. This is not a terrible thing at all, nor does it ruin the listening experience in a dramatic way. The vast majority of fans and listeners will take little or no issue.

Part melodic post-hardcore, part arena indie-rock – It’s a space I the Mighty shares with very few and it has set put them into a category of must-follow bands. Avoiding clichés, I the Mighty has managed to write a record that is catchy, intense and mature, articulating the feelings of self-doubt and discovery poetically with instrumentals that are energetic and masterfully written. While Where The Mind Wants To Go / Where You Let It Go is a fantastic album by any standards, the band still seems to be reaching its full bloom.
