MOUSES are a pretty wild duo from Teesside who have been creating a bit of a fuss since they started bashing out their lo-fi garage punk just over two years ago.
We caught them supporting NARCS at their album launch last month and they were awesome – check out our review HERE.
The pair have just released a new single ahead of their debut album which is out at the end of September. Hollywood is a short, sharp blast of fuzzy punk. Check out the suitably surreal video below >>
Commenting on the track, Bardgett explains: “Hollywood is about the very nature of fame and the issues that come with chasing it. There’s a lot of references to the film Sunset Boulevard in the lyrics as I can remember watching that film for the first time and being blown away by how relevant it still is – how the desire to be famous can destroy a person. Hollywood is about treating fame as a poison, a drug – the more glimpses of it you get, the more you want – and the idea that people will do anything to be famous. That terrifies me.”
>> Hollywood is out now. Mouses debut album The Mouses Album is on September 23 2016 via Sister 9 Recordings / Cargo.
