Evolution Emerging Artist Profiles: Mouses
Join us as we journey inside the minds of some of Evolution Emerging Festival’s most promising up and coming artists!
How would you describe your sound to someone to convince them to check you out at the festival?
Lo-fi fuzzy punk rock. A bit like Weezer thrown through a big muff. And then another big muff. And we sing and shout about the shit we think matters.
What are your thoughts on Evo Emerging?
We love it. It’s our third time at the festival so it should be a really special one. And the 10th Anniversary of the whole thing too! It’s set to be a great day. It always is.
How important do you think grassroots events such as this are for emerging artists?
Incredibly important. It’s ace for emerging artists to have something to aim for that’s genuinely achievable and puts so much time and effort into showcasing new music and upcoming acts. It helped us out loads. When I first sent in something to apply to play 4 years ago we’d literallybeen a band for about a month and just had some bedroom demos we’d recorded! They gave us a shot and it meant an insane amount to us at the time.
Which artists are you excited to catch at the festival?
We absolutely love Martha so are psyched they’ll be following us at The Tyne Bar. Also Ghost Guilt, The Noise And The Naive, Pit Pony, Blom and Casual Threats will all be amazing!!
Do you have any tips for other up and coming artists who are starting out?
Play every show like it’s your last. Be nice to everyone. Work really fucking hard. Stand up for what you believe in.
Do you have any developments you're working on that you want to give a shout out to?
We’re putting on the second Mousetival on August 11th which we’re super excited about. Ghost Guilt and The Noise And The Naive will be playing that too, along with us and loads of our friends and faves Cowtown, Pet Crow, Milk Crimes, Nim Chimpsky, Dressed Like Wolves, Swine Tax, Slurs and a little surprise! We’ve also been recording recently and will have loads of stuff to announce properly real soon!
