Born during the depths of the pandemic, indie-alternative rock band KONZI’s second single (check out the brilliant video for their first single “Bonnie and Clyde“), Free Your Mind, is a fresh track dropping on May 1.
KONZI is led by singer/songwriter Forrest Garner and his big, distinctive vocals, Shawn Byrwa’s explosive guitar licks, Garrett Horlacher’s rhythmic bass tones, Carly Jo Jackson’s contagious harmonies, and Ulises Chavez’s vibrant drum grooves. They formed in the midst of “arguably one of the darkest moments in the recent history of creativity, with one goal… To never let the music die.”
“Writing and recording an album during a bane of history inspired the band to explore themselves to new heights and consequently write music with new depth. They channeled their isolation and uncertainty into something tangible, something positive… KONZI is on a path to trail-blaze the music industry with the same sense of spirited adventure that was roused within them during the band’s formation.”
‘Free Your Mind’ is an alternative rock track, funky and different while maintaining its edgy sound.
