Ahead of their return to the US this weekend, Manchester quartet Mandy, Indiana release a new single, “Idea Is Best”. This is the first taste of new music from Mandy, Indiana since the release of their debut album via Fire Talk, i’ve seen a way, named one of 2023’s best albums by New York Times, Pitchfork, The Guardian, Crack, Loud and Quiet, The List of Best Fit and more. “Idea Is Best” is an industrial club-ready track with deep, thumping bass rumbling underneath sweeping synths and singer Valentine Caufield’s haunting whisper echoing throughout. The accompanying video features kaleidoscopic live footage of the band shot by Hitness Club and edited by Harry Steel.

This month, Mandy, Indiana will bring their “physically — yet brilliantly — overwhelming” (NME) live set to Coachella Music & Arts Festival and Elsewhere in New York. This is their largest headlining US show to date and will feature special guests Mary Jane Dunphe and Water from Your Eyes (DJ set). Mandy, Indiana thrive in the unexpected, and their performances have become a vehicle to explore the boundaries of tension and release. A full list of upcoming dates are below and tickets are on sale now.

Mandy, Indiana do it again! This track gives you this false sense of security, whilst still layering this ambiguous atmosphere, a darker complex rules the attributes before the track hurtles towards this mammoth and colossal shift in intensity. The outfit gives its all to heighten the magnitude of this ensemble in one quick movement, all abrasive textures flourish and deliver something brooding and brash.
