Mt Misery

Hartlepool indie-pop trio Mt. Misery released their debut album ‘Once Home, No Longer’ via Prefect Records (Ex-Void, The Natvral, EggS) in summer 2021, alongside a long-since sold-out limited edition Rough Trade Exclusive vinyl.

A new EP supported by the PRS Foundation’s ‘Open Fund’ will be released in Spring 2022, preceded by brand new single ‘Spinning Top’.

The band’s sound reflects a timeless but beautiful heartbreak for fans of Real Estate, Whitney and Alvvays, but under the surface, there is a mature determination to succeed that can only be cultivated in the working-class environs of a northern town.

“A quintessentially British flavour of storytelling that’s both heartfelt and believable, bringing to mind bands such as Teenage Fanclub or even Belle And Sebastian. 8/10” – The Line of Best Fit

“A stunning piece of West Coast pop with the warmest melodies you may well hear all year. Perfect. 5/5” – NARC.
