“Young, smiley, talented and sounding fresh as f*ck, Mouses were the first band I saw at this year’s Stockton Calling and one that immediately went on my list to see again. A mixture of sharp drumbeats, catchy riffs and fuzzy vocals, songs like Hollywood, Poison and Algebra are thrown out with boundless energy and endearing enthusiasm. The kind of music that gets you up and dancing – jump on board before their popularity skyrockets.” Bleach and Cologne
Described as ‘Buddy Holly on acid’ and ‘bubblegum pop with attitude’ – Teesside’s Mouses are a lo-fi alternative rock duo formed in early 2014 with a tendency for gig induced self destruction.
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 built a growing reputation for their raw, energetic and unique sound and live performances.
As heard on BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio 6, BBC Introducing Newcastle/Teesside, Vic Galloway’s BBC Scotland and Amazing Radio; Mouses have burst onto the scene with festival appearances at Stockton Calling, Stockton Weekender Warm Up, Evolution Emerging, Twisterella, Oxjam Takeover and recently recorded their debut album in Sheffield, due for release on Sister 9 Recordings later this year.
