Ahh, this song gave me the nostalgia feels. Now I know art is subjective, and how one person takes a piece of art is different how another will. That being said, and I’m not sure if my perspective is close to his original intention behind this infectious song, but I felt as if my mind was brought to the alt rock club scene of the late 80’s/early 90’s. That to me is a beautiful thing, but as I said art is subjective.
I really dig this song and could see it fitting nicely amongst the soundtrack of Less Than Zero or Pump Up The Volume. It carries with it that vibe. It taps into that music scene. Its clear that this is a layered song with much more than that surface level comparison. After listening to ‘Get You Off My Mind’ quite a few times its clear that one needs to peel away the layers like an onion. It expertly veers between bass driven rock music, with catchy indie rock vocals and the heavier sounding guitar riffs and chords usually found in alt rock. Add in the synth keyboards which harken back to that 80’s nostalgia I spoke of, and Klye Nuss has created a thing of beauty.

I’m always amazed when I come across an artist that embraces the DIY attitude and has the talent and capabilities to pull it off successfully. ‘Get You Off My Mind’ shows how chock full of talent Kyle Nuss is. To compose a song dealing with the heavy subject of being stuck with something that’s bad for you while being unable to resist it. That’s a concept that could fit with relationships, addictions, or crappy jobs. The possibilities are endless. With his creation of Atomic Bronco, he is showing the world what I think might just be the tip of the iceberg in terms of his talent. I for one am eager to see what else he has to offer.
