Mt. Doubt – The Loneliness of the TV Watchers
Release Date – 2nd June 2017
Straight off the back of their latest single Tourists – which was released as a split 7″ with fellow indie-cohorts Foreignfox – Mt. Doubt announce the release of their brand new EP, The Loneliness of the TV Watchers on CD via Scottish Fiction Records.
Reflecting on the everyday sense of disillusionment and fear that affects all of us, The Loneliness Of The TV Watchers is a heartfelt collection of indie-rock ballads. From the luscious harmonies and uptempo beats of latest single Tourists – which is inspired by Bargery’s fear of flying – to the poetic lyricism and sweeping melodies of Purity, each track offers an insight into the banality of everyday life. As Bargery’s impassioned, deep baritone flows, with strong shades of the likes of The National or Frightened Rabbit, each anthemic creation tugs at the heartstrings with a twinkling honesty.
The latest track to be taken from the EP is Reference Books, which premiered via TeamRock last week, has been described as mixing stark jangling guitars with confessional lyricism to create dark innovative indie.
Since the release of their critically acclaimed albums In Awe of Nothing and My Past Is A Quiet Beast, Mt. Doubt have received praise from the likes of The Scotsman, The National, The Skinny, as well as BBC 6Music and BBC Radio Scotland to name but a few. They are also no strangers to the Scottish live circuit, having performed at T in the Park, Belladrum, and supported We Were Promised Jetpacks, Admiral Fallow, and White Lies, amongst others. The EP release will be supported by a launch gig at Sneaky Pete’s, Edinburgh on Friday 26th May with support from Posable Action Figures, Life Model, and David James Ritchie.
