The Mumbles are a keyboard-driven rock n’ roll band from London. Formed in 2005 they have since created a unique style of alternative music based around Gothic Rock and Post-Punk influences of the 1970s and 1980s.
In 2008 The Mumbles independently released “THE WIRE EP” which was met with positive feedback from all that heard it, (“If they’re this good now they could grow into something immense” – Mick Mercer).
The Mumbles’ follow up album, “THE DUST LEFT BEHIND”, will be released on November 30th 2009 on CD and digital download on their independent record label, Mumbling Release. Stylistically it is a progression from “THE WIRE EP”.
The band decided to revamp three older songs but the main bulk of the eleven-track album is completely new. The songs are mostly mid-tempo and, due to the recent acquisition of a session guitarist; contain a sprinkling of varying sounds.
The record is predominantly keyboard-based (like their other releases) and is somewhat of a cementer in terms of style.
“If they can keep up the quality I see no reason why [“THE DUST LEFT BEHIND”] will be anything other than seminal”. – Robert Maisey (Legion).
