Biography:

With their mix of Ska, Punk and Grunge music which they like to call “Drowzy Rock and Roll”, Hush Mozey have been fighting the modern musical mediocrity from within Bristol. This year, with the band playing the festival circuit with performances at Y-Not, Truck and Glastonbury, Hush Mozey has grown a following of sinners and slackers who all share a common love for their new take on Rock and Roll music. Hush Mozey represent modern urban Britain and the new counter culture of the youth.

Tales of Bigotry

Hush Mozey’s debut release shows us just what they are already capable of. Their opening track, “Moroccan Treasure”, showcases their self-dubbed "Drowzy Rock and Roll" sound, awakening from a bazaar-dream to a reversed guitar alarm clock, before crescendoing to a dramatic climax.

An ode to the fringe folk of Broken-Britain is the cult anthem, ‘A Place For Them’. The lead single for Tales of Bigotry feels at home in Bristol, a sound track fit to accompany a mozey down to our place for them, Stokes Croft, on a brisk Friday night, as well as offering a crash course of sonic ecstasy. Infusing roaring guitar tones, contrasting gypsy-reggae rhythms, infectious bass lines and raw, cut-loose vocals performances, living and breathing each and every lyric, births the future of the Hush Mozey sound, freakishly excitable and from the seedy underbelly of modernity.

Following this one of the mellower songs from the band, “Burlesque”, an song for lovers and a song befitting quiet coffee shops and Sunday afternoons. It oozes charisma and charm from start to mesmeric finish. The song highlights Hush Mozey's love for  sonic layers and melodic textures. 

Textured with intricate vocal layers, accompanied with a somber confession of a broken partnership, "Listen Learn" takes things in a darker direction, one that builds in tension as it progresses and explodes with a dramatic finale. 

Hitting hard and driving deep, next flies through “Paper People”; direct, tenacious and unforgiving.

Taking influences from alternative trends of 90s rock is “Hideout”, wonky yet anthemic and hard to forget. With its peaks of hard-hitting grungy choruses, valleys of electronic verses and cheery vocal harmonies and whistles, the song has it all.

And to finally ease through the end of the EP is “One More Night”. Think early morning night drives in a metropolis, filled with nothing but the thoughts of someone searching for something and reliving it each and every night to the soundtrack of a slow-burning blues jam. The perfect soundtrack to the end credits for Tales of Bigotry.

"In terms of processing whilst tracking, I used the API 550 EQs to shape to tone of the mics and drove the pre-amps pretty heavily, especially on the drums."
