Mt. Doubt announces new single ‘Reference Books’!
“…mixes stark, jangling guitars with confessional lyricism…”
– Team Rock
“…distinctive vocals and accomplished songwriting…”
– The Scotsman
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 previous 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.
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, Brew At The Bog and supported We Were Promised Jetpacks, Admiral Fallow and White Lies amongst others.
The Loneliness Of The TV Watchers, the forthcoming EP from Mt. Doubt, is out 2nd June 2017 via Scottish Fiction Records.
