The Mysterines

Music / Indie, Rock / Liverpool, United Kingdom

No fancy ad campaign or promotion was needed to catapult this year’s debut from The Mysterines into the top places of the British album charts. It’s true that the project, strongly influenced by 90s alternative rock and grunge, had the honour of signing with the legendary Fiction Records label right at the outset of their career. But the trio’s songs, like “Life’s A Bitch (But I Like It So Much)” or “Dangerous”, are of unmatched quality. PJ Harvey and Nirvana, The Cure and Hole probably were the godfathers of this sound. That said, The Mysterines are 100% modern and emancipated from former icon, follow their own script, have their own power. Frontwoman Lia Metcalfe immediately provides compelling proof of why the trio from Liverpool is now going through the roof with “Reeling” and packing venues all over England to the rafters. A beast on stage, but equally a focused songwriter and guitarist, Metcalfe holds this band together, which consists of three more talented members on guitar, bass and drums in Callum Thompson, George Favager and Paul Crilly. The result is: the four are an absolute powerhouse live.
