Croatian Prog-Rock Trio THEM MOOSE RUSH share new video for ‘Dumadu Honey’ | New album Don’t Pick Your Noise out next month
Don’t Pick Your Noise by Them Moose Rush is released worldwide on 9th March 2018 through TMR Records
“One of the most talented young Croatian bands and shooting stars of the European musical scene.”
“The basic concept for the video popped up in our minds immediately when recording the song because the intro riff, together with the cymbals sound very much like a typewriter. It’s a kind of robotic and repetitive song, almost as if you are just tapping the same pattern over and over again.” – offers the band’s Nikola Runjavec. “We like to think of ourselves as very visual and musical, so we wanted to connect this idea and name the song accordingly. We presented the concept to our video director Dinko Štimac, who is a genius and genuinely creative guy. After some quick brainstorming, he had a vision of an office theme and based it all around an ASCII typewriter. When we realized, we could visualize with ASCII code almost anything, the idea of the guy typing out his fantasies onto the paper seemed very psychedelic and crazy, which of course, fits the song perfectly.” Nikola Runjavec – Guitar, Vocals
Hailing from the city of Bjelovar in Croatia, Them Moose Rush are a progressive rock band unlike any other. Working in a genre often fuelled by pomp and circumstance the Eastern European trio have always done things for themselves, and in doing so, done it all inimitably. From directing their own music videos to producing their own photographs, the band even has a penchant for hiding cyphers in songs via Morse codes on keyboards and palindrome/semordnilap messages. And away from the devil in the detail, they simply rock harder and faster than anyone else.
Combining vintage vibes which play dutifully with the blues and heavy rock, their approach to song writing and production bursts with innovation. Much like 2013’s To Future Miss Sunshine, their second full-length album Don’t Pick Your Noise pushes riff after chaotic riff in an attempt to challenge listeners’ perceptions of what a rock and roll trio is truly capable of. Following their debut the band released two EPs that quickly helped establish them as live fixtures on the European festival and tour circuit, performing at Europavox (France), Eurosonic (Holland), INmusic (Croatia) and Krach Am Bach (Germany), alongside international bands such as The Black Keys, Arcade Fire, Pixies, Colour Haze, The Vintage Caravan and Mars Red Sky.
From lead singer Nikola Runjavec’s devastating vocal range, spanning a sonic spectrum that takes in Geddy Lee, Robert Plant and Jack White, to bass player Branimir Kuruc and drummer Vedran Marinko Komlen’s tight ship of a rhythm section, Don’t Pick Your Noise is a progressive, space-fuelled majesty of electric alt-rock and Machina melody.
Don’t Pick Your Noise by Them Moose Rush is released worldwide on 9th March 2018 on TMR Records with a vinyl version released through Dostava Zvuka.
