When a band forms out of hometown friendship, the music usually makes you smile. There’s no exception with Catalonia-bred, Barcelona-based quartet MOURN, who put out their self-titled debut when the three eldest members were only eighteen. They may be young but MOURN continues to channel post-rock and alternative punk of past generations, fitting snugly in a playlist between PJ Harvey, Pixies, and Patti Smith.
At a rate of an album a year, MOURN showed off their rapidly maturing energy and contagious energy last month with their fourth studio album Sorpresa Familia. MOURN continues their national tour of the U.S. with a show next Tuesday at Barracuda with Chastity and Thin Skin and you can get riled up to one of the shortest and best from MOURN’s dozen new tunes, “Fun at the Geysers”!
