“Boy, I thought you was sweet, girl, but you’re just sugar-free”

With colossal ominous thumps and eerie charm, Mini Mansion’s latest single “Gummy Bear” is dark comedy in rock’n’roll groove that sends you sugar highs. But all its sweet charm aside, the track is a breakup song. “Love’s no walk in the park, girl, so, uh, won’t ya bring a leash? / Ooh, no, I won’t be your dog.” Stream below:

“Although ‘GummyBear’ is rather fun and comical, the sentiment and story behind it are quite the opposite. At that time I really wanted to make an all disco record, but I guess this is as close as Mini Mansions gets to being part of the Gibbs family.” shared the band.

The single is from Mini Mansions’ upcoming album Guy Walks Into A Bar…out on July 26 on Fiction Records. They will start touring towards the end of this month, so go check ‘em:
