Mowbird have been big favourites around here since bursting into view with their superb debut album Islander back in 2014; a fun-filled adventure in soul-consuming, fuzzy indie-pop.
Since their 2014 debut the North Walian quartet have been pretty quiet – releasing a single with Sweet Baboo & the One-Offs compilation – but that’s all changed with a brand new EP, Greetings, All!. Adorned with all the hallmarks which singles them out as one of the finest purveyors of fuzzy indie-pop, Mowbird’s new EP is a whirlwind of mostly sub 2-minute adventures in fuzzy, fun-filled blasts of scuzzy, sweetly melodic garagey, noise-pop. From the exuberant bursts of energy from saw-tooth opener ‘Pulsator’ to the hyperactive power-pop explosion of ‘My Boyfriend, The Alien’, there is an irresistible alchemy at work. What makes Mowbird ear-pleasing racket is, it is combined with a poppy sheen, catchy harmonies, melodies and hooks; and some stunning organ work (an intrinsic part of their sound). In typical Mowbird fashion, this magnificent happy-go-lucky fuzz-fest will be bouncing round your head all day long.
