Mumblr invite us inside their world (and kitchen) on their Swell Tone session
A perfect snapshot of the DIY mentality that’s been pumping through the Philly music scene’s veins, our friends at Swell Tone captured local punks Mumblr in their living room-turned-practice space for a personal look at one of the cities stand-out bands. Performing their new song “Microwave” off of the anticipated sophomore release The Never Ending Get Down, out this Friday June 10th on Fleeting Youth Records, the video finds the guys of Mumblr shredding amidst the eccentric decor of their home.
Never-ending piles of wires snake throughout the living room and kitchen area, where the band makes a comical concoction to nuke in their microwave (get it?) at the start of the video. “Microwave” is an energetic jam and watching the band play it through adds another level of vitality to the already bursting-at-the-seams band. The raw yet endearing glimpse into Mumblr’s new music and band dynamic further demonstrates just how dang likable these guys are. Accessible and easygoing, this session feels like you’re watching a group of your friends, and to be fair, you kind of are.
You can catch Mumblr’s record release show at PhilaMOCA this Saturday, June 11th with Amanda X and Mannequin Pussy. For tickets and more information, check out the XPN Concert Calendar and watch the session with Swell Tone below.
