Mush are from Leeds. They play a kind of slacked out art-rock. The songs are melodic and highly music -orientated but weirdly catchy and infectious. Their early single Alternative Facts was a ten minute critique of the increasingly familiar phenomenon of fake news and the movement toward soundbite-orietntated politics. Set to a backdrop of a driving repetitive rhythms, weaving guitar textures and off the cuff a-tonal vocal style,Alternative Factsis a catchy and refreshing single choice. due to the sheer length. Live performances have prompted the expected ‘guitar band’comparisons to the likes of Pavement, Television, Velvet underground etc. Mush, however, play with an unhinged and experimental energy and purist intentionality that means they are ones to watch in their own right.
