Last night, Liverpudlian punks The Mysterines revealed their brand new track ‘Love’s Not Enough’!
Premiering on Steve Lamacq’s BBC Radio 6 show yesterday, the song is just as brutal as you’d expect from the young group who’ve become known for their scuzzy riffs and scathing vocalisation. However, ‘Love’s Not Enough’ is more melodic, allowing for the vocalist and guitarist Lia Metcalfe‘s cleaner vocals shine through. In an interview with Get Into This she said”I’m really excited about it as it’s pretty different to the other things that we’ve put out. It’s a good reflection of our songs and my writing so I’m looking forward to it.”
The Mysterines released their debut EP Take Controllast August, but they’ve been kicking up a storm for a long time before this. Their debut single ‘Hormone’, released October 2018, received immediate praise from the likes of Northern Exposure, Gigsultz, BBC Introducing and Radio 6, and the band have since become regular favourites of the station. Despite not having any active social media, their first shows sold out, and they were chosen to tour with the likes of Miles Kane, The Amazons and Royal Blood.
The latest single prior to ‘Love’s Not Enough’, ‘Who’s Ur Girl?’, skyrocketed upon release, with coverage from tastemakers CLASH, Upset, Dork and Gigwise, as well as being included on Spotify’s New Noise, All New Rock and Hot New Bands playlists, and seeing further support from BBC Radio 1, BBC6 Music and Apple Music’s Breaking Rock.
Now they’ve been named as ones to watch this year by the likes of Indie Central, Riot Mag, Get Into This and When The Horn Blows, you know they’re a band you need to get onto asap!
