TINA – ” Positive Mental Health Music “

Positive Mental Health Music is the first full-length to be released by London label Speedy Wunderground (black midi, Black Country New Road, Squid). Produced by Dan Carey, the album is full of playful indie rock and psych-pop, soundtracking what happens when mental health crises and inner demons threaten to get the best of you. Joshua Loftin’s high-pitched vocals, along with their rollicking guitars and keys, are a welcome break in the clouds.

Despite this landmark moment and its loaded title, frontman Joshua Loftin is keen to downplay the potentially profound nature of the LP.

“I wouldn’t call it a concept record,” he tells us. “We didn’t even come up with the title. A friend came to a show at the Five Bells in New Cross, and afterwards he was like, ‘I like it, it’s like positive mental health music’. I thought it was cool and it just stuck. The mental health thing became a bit more of a focus for me because I had a breakdown about two years ago and that’s where the songs came from.”

‘Rosalina’ is taken from the forthcoming debut Tiña album ‘Positive Mental Health Music’ out 6th November 2020 on Speedy Wunderground.
