“Billingham-based alt-rock duo Mouses make more noise than most bands twice their size. Luckily, it’s an infectious racket; a spiky, lo-fi, punk rock assault with bangin’ toons…”Sister 9 Records
Mouses are a lo-fi alternative rock duo formed in late 2013 in Teesside, comprising of guitarist and vocalist Steven Bardgett and drummer Nathan Duff. With a sound influenced by the early works of lo-fi bands such as Wavves and Times New Viking, encompassing surrealist lyrics and playful melodies, they have already garnered praise and comparison to the likes of Graham Coxon and Pavement. Despite only playing their first gig in February of this year, the band have accomplished BBC Radio 6 and BBC Introducing Newcastle/Teesside plays, alongside securing a slot at Newcastle’s Evolution Emerging festival.
