Imaginary People release their self-titled debut EP on Sept. 3, and it’s brimming with what this New York five-piece calls “dance Americana.”

Download today’s free MP3, ‘Better Minds,’ and you’ll understand that descriptor. The song showcases the band’s knack for crafting super-melodic tunes sure to get folks dancing along, but it also rings with distinct bluesy qualities that link it to Americana.

“If you’re wondering what the public feels like about our do-nothing Congress and its gridlock, this might be the melodic tremor they’re seeking,” singer Dylan Von Wagner tells Diffuser.fm.

The dissatisfaction in that statement can certainly can be heard in Von Wagner’s quavering vocals. He sounds like he’s constantly on the brink of erupting into a howl, but he maintains his restraint for the song's duration.
