MOURN ANNOUNCE NEW 7″ ON CAPTURED TRACKS; HEAR ‘GERTRUDIS, GET THROUGH THIS!’ NOW
MOURN is a very young quartet formed from the friendship of Jazz Rodríguez Bueno and Carla Pérez Vas—both born in 1996 in El Maresme, Catalonia, Spain. The duo armed themselves with inspiration from PJ Harvey, Patti Smith, Sebadoh and Sleater Kinney and began writing material which they quickly released – in raw and acoustic form – on their YouTube channel. These recordings caught the attention of their homeland’s record label SONES. Despite being teenagers, earlier this year they came out of the studio (along with a couple new recruits—drummer Antonio Postius and bassist Leia Rodríguez) with a brilliant treatise of indie rock that stunned those who have had the opportunity to hear it.
Jazz (18), Carla (18), Leia (15) and Antonio (18) came together to present their debut LP with an authenticity and self-awareness well beyond their age. The self-titled album was released on Captured Tracks in February of this year, and was met with overwhelming critical acclaim. After a mini-tour of the U.S plus extensive European dates over the last couple months, the quartet is eager to release their new single, ‘Gertrudis, Get Through This!’. The three-song 7″ will be released physically this July, and is now digitally available for purchase.
