New single from Fleece tackles love, isolation that comes from dating apps

Jazz-inspired indie psych group Fleece has released a new track titled “Do U Mind? (Leave the Light On)”.

In a press release, vocalist Matt Rogers had this to say about the song: “It’s about meeting up with someone and pretending like you’re in love for the night, even though you both know you’re not. It’s a little wink to all the people out there who feel the same way, and want to feel that sense of belonging for just a moment. I feel like hookup culture has made it really hard to be vulnerable with each-other. This song is my attempt at explaining the intersection of love, isolation, and frustration that apps like Grindr make me feel.”

In the past, Fleece has been recognized for their open support of the LGBTQ community with Billboard Pride calling their music “a Motown-esque love song for the LGBTQ community.”

The quartet released their debut album, Scavenger, in 2015 and their second album, Voyager, in 2017. The band followed these albums up with 3 singles in 2020, “Upside Down”, “So Long”, and “Love Song for the Haters”.

“Do U Mind? (Leave the Light On)” will be part of Fleece’s third album which is expected to be released later this year.
