TRACK PREMIERE: M.A.D. “EVERYTHING”

M.A.D. is Costa Mesa musician Mario Barrios, who plays with Avid Dancer and Gantez and who named his solo project after the concept that only the possibility of total nuclear annihilation can lead to peace. (More on this fun idea here.) His new “Everything” is about those times when the bad and the good melt into the same exact thing, and it’s a dreamy—maybe even a fever-dreamy?—song that feels like it’s in freefall, with a guitar melody that finally splits open in the final moments.
