Premiere: Instant Empire “Mind The Gap”

Denver-based indie rockers, Instant Empire are preparing to self-release their new album, Lamplight Lost on June 23rd. Surviving the Golden Age is pleased to premiere the album’s new single “Mind the Gap.” Written about a story that appeared on the BBC, “Mind the Gap” tells the story of Dr Margaret McCollum repeatedly traveling to the Embankment Station to reconnect with her husband. The lonesomeness that came with each of those journeys to the station, and the somewhat simultaneous joy and heartbreak of just hearing his voice. The song is melancholic and touching without being melodramatic. It is quite the triumph in songwriting.
