East London art rock, progressive, avant-garde trio MOHIT are delighted to share the B-side to their latest single ‘Yoghurt / Reggaeezer’ released Friday 26th July.
The band has also revealed a run of UK headline tour dates, joined by Leeds Psych-rock band KOYO, throughout September and October 2019 (see below for listings) with plans for further dates to be announced in the coming weeks.
Commenting on ‘Reggaeezer’ the band said: “The song is a snapshot of an impromptu jam at our rehearsal space in Whitechapel. We were joined by Marky Mark; a local homeless man who went on to imbue the music with a deeper meaning. His lyric, “Stand alone, on my own” speaks of his life on the streets, and the melody manifests his courageous optimism”.
The lyrics in the first half of the song introduce this event, accompanied by a calypso groove and ethereal harmonies which nod to the old version of the song. This part weaves itself into a more expansive and melancholic section where Marky takes centre stage.
Produced by Marta Salogni (Björk, YAK, Holly Herndon, Methyl Ethel, Liars), mastered by Heba Kadry, and cut to lacquer by Matt Colton, the single is available on heavyweight black vinyl and is strictly limited to just 250 copies.
This follows on from the band’s debut 7″ ‘Racek / Discover Another’ released at the end of 2018 which garnered support from the likes of BBC 6Music, Amazing Radio, The 405, Louder Than War, Circuit Sweet, Gigsoup, Pirate Studios, White Heat White Noise, Hard of Hearing, Frontview Magazine, and more.
2018 also saw MOHIT enjoy a packed in-store performance at Rough Trade East as well as popular tour dates alongside Wooden Shjips, The Murlocs, Omni, Nothing, Yonatan Gat, Vaadat Charigim, The Parrots. and Canada’s hotly-tipped export Ought. The band will continue their live action with a series of dates in the coming months and more dates to be announced in due course.
