Rock ‘n’ roll foursome Hinds may be the Spanish band on your radar this year, but there’s another Madrid-based group making waves across the Mediterranean and beyond.
Mozes And The Firstborn
Playing a potent mix of sleazy grunge and power pop perfection Mozes and the Firstborn hail from Eindhoven, The Netherlands. The band started out in 2010 with Melle Dielesen on vocals, guitar and songwriting, Corto Blommaert on bass and Raven Aartsen on drums. Ernst-Jan van Doorn joined later on guitar. In 2011 they released their first EP ‘I Got Skills’ which title track rather fast became the fan’s favorite. The band’s inspirations vary from Guided by Voices and Beck to Weezer and Nirvana.
The Californian label Burger Records released their self-titled debut album in 2014. Since then the band has embarked on international tours with The Growlers, Unknown Mortal Orchestra and Together Pangea, crisscrossing the United States and Europe. In 2016 the band released Great Pile of Nothing, a more introvert and mellow album.
The past year Mozes and the Firstborn have been recording new tunes for their third full-length album, due for release in 2019. Embracing the feel of a mixtape, they blend their favorite styles and genres into an intriguing collection of songs. The band has worked with a number of producers, including producer/mixer Chris Coady (Beach House, Slowdive) and Roland Cosio (together PANGEA, Fuzz).
