Cape Town’s instrumental post rock band Yndian Mynah release ‘Gestalt’, their final single off their upcoming album

Influenced by DIY culture, Yndian Mynah started off by playing tightly packed intimate floor shows and quickly elevated to festival stages across South Africa. In 2019, they released their debut album ‘Velvet Youth’ - recorded, produced and released through their own independent label, Mount Wave Studio. Singles from the album, including ‘Ridge Forrester’, “Massimo, Don’t Go” and “Chai Tea”, would go on to represent their dynamic compositions. Staying away from conventional rock music, Yndian Mynah is not bound by language or genre, allowing for impressive high-energy live shows that focus on a visual and instrumental journey, left wide open for personal interpretation. Expect large guitar-driven songs led by spontaneous structural changes, with a tendency for heavy breakdowns and momentary euphoria.

Today sees the release of Gestalt, the final single to be released before the new album The Boys Scribbled Like Mad out on the 25th November via The Good Times Co.

“Gestalt is a play on the idea of togetherness being more powerful than the individual. The feeling we get when we play, and write music together makes us feel part of something special and bigger than ourselves as individuals. The song is a play on American and British rock themes, from American intervals to brit-rock themes found in Stone Roses. The song is built on simple structures that everyone plays, but together sounds big and uniform. Adding the human element to an electronic structure as a nod to the original foundation of the theory in Gestalt teaching.” - comments the ban
