Mourn share 'Over The Wall' EP
Marking their triumphant return, Catalalonian band Mourn have shared their eagerly anticipated new EP, 'Over The Wall.'
The release is a collection of 4 covers and 1 unreleased track from their sophomore album, 'Ha, Ha, He!', nailing both the melody and spirit of renowned punk and indie anthems from the past 30 years.
'Over The Wall' features covers from Mourn’s past and present musical influences. Tracks include 'Colour Me Impressed' by pioneers of alternative rock, The Replacements, alongside raw and energetic covers of 'Over The Wall' by British indie quartet Echo & The Bunnymen, 'The Fire' by The Sound and 'Whatever' by Husker Du.
Packing more energy than ever, the quartet are ready to show the world what we've all been denied. Making authentically great guitar-based music in an era when it is now considered almost unfashionable, Mourn have also included an original and unreleased track titled “Angines”. Meticulously produced, it is a symphony of enticing bass lines and counterpointing rhythms, aiming to prove that punk rock is far from dead.
Over the course of their so far short career, the band have seen their share of triumphs and tribulations. After a recent dramatic legal dispute with their previous Spanish label, which forced them to remain absent or turn away all opportunities brought forth by the 2016 release of their 2nd LP, the Catalonian band was left isolated, unable to tour and promote their recent successes.
However, times are changing with the band, with a string of several festival appearances including shows at Primavera, La Route du Rock and Pitchfork. An upcoming American Tour and their legal troubles finally behind them, the band’s release of their latest EP is set to further continue their speedy ascent from local curiosity into an international band on the rise.
The 'Over The Wall' EP is available now via Captured Tracks.
