SONG PREMIERE: Lindy Vision Craft Embellishing & Progressive New Wave Via “Abandonment”

For Albuquerque, New Mexico new wave/synth-pop band Lindy Vision, family casts a shadow over everything. The trio—comprised of three Black Native sisters, Dorothy (Dee Dee), Natasha (Na), and Carla Cuylear—has spent the last six years honing their unique sonic palette, a mix of dark ‘80s new wave, bouncy synth-pop, and ethereal indie-rock that has drawn comparisons to Santigold, M.I.A., Devo, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and more. In that time, their music has landed them on bills supporting Spoon, Durand Jones and the Indications, A Tribe Called Red, Magic Giant & more. On their new EP, Adult Children Part II, Lindy Vision continues to create sweeping, synth-heavy soundscapes that provide a foundation for their introspective, emotionally raw musings on adult life after a tumultuous upbringing.

Adult Children Part II was recorded at the legendary Sonic Ranch outside of El Paso, Texas, a residential recording studio complex that has generated records from Bon Iver, Jenny Lewis, Parquet Courts, Big Thief and more. Lindy Vision enlisted producer Enrique Tena Padilla (Thee Oh Sees, Wand, GOGGS) for both Adult Children EPs, as well as engineer Gerardo Ordonez (Bon Iver, Deerhunter, Parquet Courts) to create a record as sonically expansive as it is explosive.

The new EP is a companion piece to the trio’s 2019 EP, Adult Children Part I, and continues the band’s exploration of life as adult children of alcoholics. Inspired by Dr. Janet Woititz’ book, Adult Children of Alcoholics, Lindy Vision has crafted two strikingly honest records that serve as pillars of empowerment and acceptance. “We were hesitant for a long time to talk about being children of alcoholics, because that can be a really shameful thing for families,” says Dee Dee. “When we were growing up we were always taught to not talk about it or social services could come take the family apart. With these records, we’re coming out as adult children of alcoholics, but also showcasing how far we’ve come and not letting that limit us.”

Adult Children Part II stands as Lindy Vision’s most fully-realized project to date, showcasing the trio at their most sonically versatile and emotionally honest. It’s an uncompromising look at the ripple effect of alcoholism from a stark bare first-person perspective. “As we’ve grown as a band, we’ve learned more about ourselves and what we’re willing to talk about. We’ve opened up more and have become more honest. This is our most authentic piece, both as a band and as sisters.”

Glide is proud to premiere the striking “Abandonment” which throws out the rule book and mixes heart-rendering indie rock with world influences. Mixing shades of Local Natives, Tame Impala and Angélique Kidjo, Lindy Vision craft a bold statement as modern innovators and visionaries.
