mustard music proudly presents “I Don’t Care” the newest single from indie/folk-pop band The Ransom Collective.
Since releasing their debut album “Traces” in 2017, the band has undergone a creative rebirth — exploring new musical ideas, and experimenting between different styles and sounds that have led them to a fresh, modern reinvention on the sound listeners and fans have come to love them for.
“I Don’t Care” brings these ideas into fruition, as the first of many songs that came to be in this new era of The Ransom Collective. The song is about discovering oneself, and all the ugliness and beauty that comes with the process.
Prior to its release, the song took the top spot on the iTunes PH New Music Pre-Order Chart – proving even more successful as the single launched on May 3rd. Aside from topping the iTunes PH Alternative Chart, the head-bopping track also entered the iTunes PH All-genre chart, taking the highest spot for an OPM song. The band’s comeback song joins the big leagues of Taylor Swift & Brendon Urie, BTS, and BLACKPINK, who similarly have released new tracks for their longtime fans.
Talking about the song, lead vocalist Kian Ransom says, “I watched someone I love go through depression, and this song is essentially about the journey they went through and the empathy that’s required to understand someone who’s going through something so difficult.”
While the song tackles rather serious matters, its backing track provides a sense of fun and lightness – giving an upbeat, retro feel that will give listeners good vibes to sing and dance along to on repeat.
Coming into this brand new take on the TRC sound, band members mention Anderson Paak, Honne, Boy Pablo, Bon Iver, Prep, Crumb, Chance the Rapper, among many artists they’ve taken inspiration from.
If this song is any indication, long-time fans and new listeners have a lot of good music to look forward to from The Ransom Collective all-year round.
I Don’t Care is now available for streaming on iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, Deezer, and Amazon Music, under mustard music. Watch out for its accompanying music video, premiering on MYX and YouTube on May 4th.
