Simple Minds return with a brilliant new track

There’s another world, probably many, but the one I think of at this present moment in time is the one whereby Simple Minds remain the more adventurous and experimental compared to U2.

If you’re scoffing at this, then the chances are you haven’t heard Simple Minds’ early stuff – but records like Life In A Day, Reel To Reel Cacophony and Empires And Dance show the sign of a band who had far more in common with arthouses than stadia.

They’re shortly to return with a new album Big Music, due out in November- and this is the first song from it: ‘Blindfolded.’ Frankly, I can live without the overblown likes of ‘She’s A River’ and ‘Belfast Child’ but this is the Minds re-discovering why, thirty years ago, they really were vital.
