“Mind’s Made Up” by Terrence & The High Flyers // We’ve been sharing singles from retro-rockers Terrence & the High Flyers since they launched the band in 2020! A year later, they’ve just released their second full-length album. “It’s not a happy record but it was a necessary one for me,” says songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Terrence O’Brien. This feeling of lost love can be felt and heard throughout the album but is best embodied by the song “Mind’s Made Up”, a soft tune about the realisation and acceptance of a relationship’s last moments.
