Published Aug 15, 2013Though the Breeders are currently out on the road celebrating the 20th anniversary of their Last Splash, frontwoman Kim Deal is also undertaking less retrograde activities by issuing solo 7-inches. A third slab of vinyl has now arrived, and you can check out A-side "Are You Mine?" in a new music video.
The true love-questioning single unfurls subtly, with acoustic melodies and gentle tambourine hits supporting Deal's softly cooed ruminations ("Let me go where there's no memory of you / Where everything is new / And nothing is true").
You can hear Deal sing the song as a camera pans across a collection of porcelain figurines in the player down below.
"Are You Mine?" is out now and can be ordered here.
Update: As a reader has pointed out and this review appears to corroborate, "Are You Mine?" apparently deals with Deal's mother's battle with Alzheimer's disease
