Mittenfields stream "Optimists" with Consequence of Sound

An exciting day for DC band Mittenfields, as they announce the April 28 release of their debut LP Optimists and share the title track with Consequence of Sound

"The title track for the album certainly lives up to its cheery name. A power pop guitar riff sets the excited tone early over thumping drums. Frontman Dave Mann channels his inner Win Butler as his voice emphatically rises and falls across the sharply produced track. It all comes together in one driven, guitar ripping rocker."
