When asked about Pay No Mind in an earlier Dropout Entertainment interview (which you can read here https://dropoutentertainment.ca/2022/01/interview-with-wayward-saints-new-music-video-pay-no-mind/) the band said
“Pay No Mind” was fun to write. Originally the verse riff was intended to be the intro, but there was something about that jangle guitar riff that just grabbed me instantly. I really wanted to play with the offbeat of it vocally to enhance that jangle vibe, and when the guys gave my idea some air, we just ran with it. Aaron our drummer instantly caught on to the swagger, and just like that the intro became the verse. The rest of the song really came together quite quickly. Lyrically, “Pay No Mind” was more introspective when I was writing vs. our first single “In The Wild”. I really wanted to speak to the confidence you need to ignore the fearful voices we all have our heads ya know? Kind of shining a light on how we can trick ourselves into negative patterns if we choose to listen more to our insecurities, rather than simply paying no mind to them.”
