Fresh off the heels of their “blistering” (Clash) kraut-indebted single ‘Vanishing’, MUTES have wheeled out the immediate, gut-punching ‘A Burial’ as the second taste of their forthcoming debut LP ‘No Desire’ – released 2nd June through FOMA.
Displaying a ferocity never before seen in their work, ‘A Burial’ is everything a great rock song should be – short, sharp and just slightly taking the piss. With pseudo-gothic video and killer hair to match – this ain’t no summer staple. None. More. Black.
Boasting members of celebrated Black Country noise-mongers God Damn and the Viv Albertine band, MUTES are no strangers to the many haunts of the second city’s independent music scene… having self-released a steady stream of experimental EPs since 2013. But all that is set the change with the release of ‘No Desire’ – their sprawling debut full-length album.
‘No Desire’ sees the band work through urgent noise-fests, slow-burning drone sequences and seductive siren songs with assured ease. Recorded at Peckham’s 123 studios with engineer Dominique James (Johnny Foreigner), the band are working with independent label FOMA to release the album as a deluxe limited-edition package – released 2nd June.
