Here’s an exclusive first listen to Come And Go, the essential new track from indie three-piece Mugen.
Mugen serve up a fantastic tonal blend, fusing late 2000s indie influences with subtle elements of math rock. You can detect an early Foals guitar style woven with vocal lines reminiscent of indie pioneers like Hard Fi and The Strokes. They’re towing the line perfectly between nostalgic familiarity and fresh originality.
Come And Go kicks off with a clinical guitar melody, running hand in hand with a thick bass line and solid, infectious beat. The chilled, lo-fi vocals really set the tone for this anthem though. It’s throwback indie with a fresh and addictive twist.
After spending some time across the North Sea at the Amsterdam Dance Event and gaining recognition from the likes of BBC Introducing earlier in the year, the band whose roots lie in Leeds, are now back in their hometown to showcase this awesome new cut.
Their launch show is at the 360 Club in Leeds tonight (10/11), followed by a live performance on BBC Introducing West Yorkshire this Saturday (11/11), before a gig midway through December at the Sour Times All Dayer at Mabgate Bleach. So if you’re about up north, pull up a pint and check these guys out!
