Six piece band Mok are set for the release of their second single ‘Rufio’ and if you haven’t been lucky enough to catch one of their high energy live performances then….well why not? Fronted by a female vocalist and male rapper, their unique blend of Pop, Rap and Dance music established them on the festival circuit last year with their first single ‘Hey’. After solid support slots with Dizzee Rascal, Professor Green, Reverend and the Makers and Stooshe, it’s time to take over the stage and make their mark. I caught up with Mok before their single release this Saturday 30th March at The Haunt, Brighton to ask them a few quick fire questions………….
Recently announced as the 13th most blogged artist in 2012 on the BBC’s Blog Zeitgeist, pipping the likes of Grimes, The XX and Django Django to the post, it looks like 2013 could well be the year of the Seasfire. Following a set of highly acclaimed demos, supporting for the likes of Bastille and King Charles and playing the Reading & Leeds festival they have amassed a startling amount of followers. After such a thoroughly successful 2012, I was able to grab a few questions with the Bristol-born electronic band to find out what their plans are for 2013.
A while back we interviewed the band My Grey Horse as PPSF band of the week.
Well, now they’re back with today seeing the official release of their latest video to new track ‘Need Wood’. The song is part of the band’s upcoming EP, ‘Stop Before the Dry River’ which is slated for a January 14th release through CRC records.
Watch out Dynamo, it looks like Oobah is after your day job towards the end of the video…
Let us know what you think in the comments section below.
This five-piece have created their own brew of stalwart Folk Rock, and it’s clear that they are suckers for the likes of Nick Cave, Neutral Milk Hotel, and Arcade Fire – need I say more to perk up your ears?
Although the Manchester based band Embers only set up shop towards the end of last year they already look set to rival the likes of Muse and Radiohead with their amazingly cultivated sound. I swiftly compare them to Muse based on their adeptness in creating tracks that shout out “epic anthem” whilst craftfully blending in elements of psychedelia and classic rock with collosal choruses that the likes of Muse do best.
