Jacksonville indie-pop chauffeur Juan Mallorca, aka Huan, leans the seat back and coasts through another Sunday-drive-of-a-track, an indelibly serene voyage called “Idle Mind.” Puffs of acoustic guitar strums,  breezy vocals, and swirling electronics keep the track billowing through its standard verse-chorus-verse-chorus sequence.

Mollarca is so nonchalant in offering the song’s hook (“I don’t care / Don’t waste your time / Idle mind / I don’t mind”) that it seems as if he could care less if “Idle Mind” even had a hook; lest anyone think he’s trying too hard. With several quality pop tunes now under his belt, Mollarca’s charting a similar sonic path to indie-pop tastemakers of the 2010’s like Foster the People and Twenty One Pilots, artists known as much for dropping radio smashes as they are for being consistently palatable.
