Infinity Cat has officially welcomed Nectar to the family and will release their debut full length on 4/20. Ahead of Knocking at the Door's release the group is sharing "Blinds" here on The Grey Estates. The track is a hopeful garage pop ode that tackles the process of distinguishing between feelings of loneliness and just being alone. The two-minute guitar-driven single is deceivingly upbeat and comforting given its subject matter, with the band piecing together a musical portrait of the eeriness and feelings that can accompany being on your own. And while the slicing guitar and catchy lyrics are blissfully energized and furious, the single's subject matter is heartfelt and enables listeners to look at loneliness with hope instead of sadness. For a song that's recklessly fun "Blinds" is equally inspirational, allowing you to find your own companionship or solace in just being you.
According to the band:
"Blinds was one of the last songs that was written for the record. The song explores different vignettes of being alone, whether it's abrupt and fresh like a power outage or slow and lingering like plants quietly overgrowing a landscape. True to our writing style, we kept the chorus upbeat and catchy despite the anxious subject matter."
