Introducing….

Introducing…. continuing our new regular feature looking at some of the exciting acts around that you may not have heard of (yet).

Where are they from? Brighton, UK

Who are they? Stephen Brett – Vocals and guitar, Steve Hoile – Bass, keys, glockenspiel and vocals, Adam Luke Atkins – Guitar and vocals, Dave Russell – Drums and percussion

What do they sound like? “Elliott Smith, Tortoise and The Shins in a brown bread sandwich.” is how they describe their sound, and it is a pretty good summary. They are as strong on melodies and harmonies as that description would suggest.

What have they got to say for themselves? The last couple of years have been busy. The Mojos recorded and self-produced their first album – ‘The Sound That I Still Hear’, and then worked on acoustic versions of many songs off the album, consequently filming a live performance (available on iTunes and viewable on YouTube). At the start of 2009, they achieved a top ten place in the Q Music Emerging Talent competition and, in the summer, played Glastonbury (what a joy!). This year will be finished in style with a headline slot at the Pavilion Theatre in Brighton on Saturday November 28th. Meanwhile, the band has been patiently working on material for album no.2, which they hope to start recording in early 2010.

What releases/tracks should I look out for? The bands debut album The Sound That I Still Here is available now along with the singles ‘Always Now’, ‘In the Script’ and ‘Pinata Face’. ‘Meet Me At The Pictures’ will be released in January 2010. All Releases are available on Amazon and iTunes.
