Westerners: ‘Wasn’t In My Right Mind’ Exclusive Video Premiere

Westerners’ new music video for “Wasn’t In My Right Mind” makes fun look easy.

With a playful backdrop, the band employs the same vitality that draws audiences to its spirited live shows. Frontman Mitchell Hewlett’s dreamy, lulling delivery pairs well with Josh Hartranft’s soaring vocal harmonies, Matt Pelsma’s jangly guitars and drummer Gerardo Rodriguez’s pulsating rhythms. In under three minutes, the quartet articulates an undeniably catchy, polished garage pop sound.


“Wasn’t In My Right Mind” is the latest track from Westerners’ upcoming album, “Reoccurring Dream Theme.” The group celebrates with release shows in Kansas City at Mills Record Company on Friday, July 7, and Love Garden Sounds in Lawrence, Kansas, on Saturday, July 8. The album will be officially released on CD, cassette and digital formats on Friday, July 14, through The Record Machine.
