Initially a solo-project for Hartlepool based multi-instrumentalist Andrew Smith, Mt. Misery ‘officially’ became a band in early 2019 and quickly became firm favourites of the North East indie-pop fraternity.
Sharing stages with the likes of Johnny Marr, Paul Smith, Bill Ryder Jones, Plastic Mermaids, Micah Erenberg and Laetitia Sadier of Stereolab, Mt. Misery’s endearing vocals and shimmering guitars made them a must see act at some of the region’s finest festivals including: This Is Tomorrow, Twisterella, Tipping Point Live, Heelapalooza and Songs From Northern Britain, to name but a few.
With influences including Chris Cohen, Real Estate, Nap Eyes, Andy Shauf, Neil Young, Teenage Fanclub and Big Star, Mt. Misery’s music is imbued with wistful melodies and sepia tinted charm.
Mt. Misery have already received airplay from Tom Robinson on BBC Radio 6 Music and picked up extensive support from the regional BBC Introducing team, who tipped their hats with two ‘Track of the Week‘ accolades and multiple live sessions.
Autumn 2019 saw the band embark on their first UK tour, where they joined Canadian artist Micah Erenberg (Sleepless Records) as both his backing band and his support band.
Tipped by God Is In The TV as a band to lookout for in 2020, Mt. Misery are currently working on their debut album with Kenny Gilmore (Chris Cohen, Halloweens, Weyes Blood etc).
