Mt. Misery head to Stockton to celebrate the release of their debut 7” single.
Initially a solo-project for Hartlepool based multi-instrumentalist Andrew Smith, Mt. Misery ‘officially’ became a band in early 2019 and quickly became firm favourites of the North East indie-pop fraternity.
Sharing stages with the likes of Johnny Marr, Paul Smith, Bill Ryder Jones, Plastic Mermaids, Micah Erenberg and Laetitia Sadier of Stereolab, Mt. Misery’s endearing vocals and shimmering guitars made them a must-see act at some of the region’s finest festivals including: This Is Tomorrow, Deer Shed, Base Camp, Twisterella, Tipping Point Live, Heelapalooza and Songs From Northern Britain.
With influences including Chris Cohen, Real Estate, Nap Eyes, Andy Shauf, Neil Young, Teenage Fanclub and Big Star, Mt. Misery’s music is imbued with wistful melodies and sepia tinted charm.
“A glorious warm-to-the-touch slice of nostalgia and heartbreak sprinkled with enough left coast hooks and melodies to shake off even the hardiest of seasonal hangovers” – God Is In The TV
“Though this three-piece haven’t been around for too long, Mt. Misery have quickly become one of the most-lauded acts in the North East for their dream-like indie pop melodies” – When The Horn Blows
“Shines with delicate percussive touches and is layered with warm guitar flourishes and a lovey winsome vocal which makes it instantly appealing” – NARC. Magazine
