“You don’t have to be able to play an instrument or be a musical person, just come by regularly” …that was the initial slogan of the Berlin-based band Mumbles.
Mumbles were born out of a desperate need to do anyhow music-making. After a couple of band transformations, they ended up with a pile of pretty unique songs, blending dewy-eyed ambitions and unspoiled skills with a good portion of fuckoff-punkish attitude.
Mumbles like making noise, pom-poms, cakes, dance, scream and shout.
After several cd-r releases (all called best of!) “Geese my eyes” it’s Mumbles’ first tape, and released on May 24th in XB Liebig.
Mumbles cooked for a while these songs, a toothy mix of pop appetite, punk ardor and genuine auditory weirdness. Their music it is just surprising, as it is clever, sometimes sweet and melanchonic, and sometimes pretty rough and punk-at-heart.
