In our previous feature on the Liverpudlian band POLICE CAR COLLECTIVE we said how if you loved The Perks of Being a Wallflower soundtrack then you’d adore this band, little did we know just how true that would soon be as their latest single was heavily inspired by the book. MINE delves into the deepest depths of teenage angst with each lyrics having a profound sensibility surrounding it and are delivered with such drama that it makes it the perfect piece to soundtrack any coming of age film, seriously A24 get in contact with them now.
“MINE was really the first POLICE CAR COLLECTIVE song that ever existed,” the duo begin to explain. “It came out of a time when I was reading ‘Perks of Being a Wallflower’ everyday and I was trying to capture that feeling in a song. I think it captures what POLICE CAR COLLECTIVE was in that moment in time. I had just moved to England after graduating high school and was trying to figure out what I was doing with my life. So the song is a lot of reflecting on high school and friends I had and things like that.”
The poignant lyricisms, anthemic sound, evocative storytelling and drama all embody exactly what this book’s message is. It champions the underdog, it shows how people can blossom when you learn to accept who they are along with the hardships that they go through and how we cannot control what happens to us but we can control where go from there. This piece is all of that and more with it being the purest representation of the book I’ve ever heard. Listen to this and feel infinite.
