They took the live room at Serious Business by storm for this fun-filled session. LUMPS is currently recording the follow-up record to 2016’s Curses!

MOURN is an impressive, young four-piece post-punk band from Barcelona. On their latest release, they exorcise the demons of a difficult two-year period in which their former record label nearly destroyed their career, but the group fought through it and put that frustration, anger, and discovery into a near-perfect record that’s at once biting and beautiful. Comprised of dual lead singer-guitarists Carla Pérez Vas and Jazz Rodríguez Bueno, along with brilliantly tight drummer Antonio Postius and bassist Leia Rodríguez, the group’s dedication is apparent. They blast through quick musical shifts with ease, adding lighthearted elements (who doesn’t love handclaps?) to spice things up a bit and shake off some of the harshness. We were extremely pleased to have the band join us in the live room at Serious Business Music in Brooklyn for this killer session. Sopresa Familia by MOURN is available now from Captured Tracks.
