Love Thy Neighbour PRESENTS:
FEAT.Mush Roxy Girls
Mush, the Leeds band who specialise in wryly-observational, exquisite lo-fi guitar pop, have signed to Memphis Industries; their debut EP ‘Induction Party’ was released last year with lead single “Litvinenko”.
Recorded at Glasgow’s thriving Green Door Studio with Ronan Fay (also the guitarist of ascendant Scottish rockers Sweaty Palms), the EP’s six tracks follow the proud lineage of art-rock from both sides of the pond. Mush cite Pavement, Sonic Youth, Television and The Fall as their primary influences: “fundamentally we identify as music fans as much as artists. I write music that I want to hear for my own enjoyment,” says vocalist/guitarist Dan Hyndman. “I’ve always admired people who can create visceral and inspiring art without carrying on as some transcendent being. Having your influences on your sleeve and being open is just an extension of that.”
The last six months have seen Roxy Girls light up their homeland releasing a hotly received debut EP which garnered early support from Marc Riley and Tom Robinson at BBC 6 Music (with the band performing for both in session). The band have played a number of shows across the UK earning a reputation for their angular and intoxicatingly idiosyncratic live performances supporting the likes of Drahla, Du Blonde, Flamingods, The Rhythm Method, Crocodiles, Mush, Duds, Thee MVPs and more.
