We’re pleased to share with you the news that Mower has joined the Reckless Yes Records roster.
Favourites of Blur guitarist and DIY supremo Graham Coxon, to whose
Transcopic label they were once signed, the band has previously toured
with British Sea Power and their second album saw Stephen Street take on production duties.
A former NME Single of the Week they were described as making, “pop music that douses itself in gasoline and plays with matches, always on the verge of some kinetically-satisfying explosion or self-destruction” while Mark Radcliffe enthused they were, “the new millennium Kinks on speed!”
Bringing this fine heritage to Reckless Yes Mower are making a welcome return after 12 years away, with new music due in summer 2017. Time has only sharpened the three-piece’s knack for a catchy pop hook and rumbling rock riff, the rawness of their early lo-fi work melding with the melodic tilt of their latter on their new material.
Reckless Yes co-founder Sarah Lay said, “A band once described as a ‘poppy Sonic Youth’ we’ve long been fans of Mower at Reckless Yes so I’m delighted and excited to be working with the band as they re-emerge onto the scene with more catchy-as-hell and raucously melodic power-punk.
“The new tracks are sounding massive, giving side-eye to the political situation while tearing up the dance floor, and we’re excited to share them with Mower fans old and new.”
Peter Darrington, co-founder of Reckless Yes, said, “I’ve always been a fan of mower from their Transcopic days. When I heard they were back together and had been in the studio I was keen to hear the new material and hopefully play it on my radio show.
“I was stoked to find the new stuff is even better than they were before – how many bands can do that after taking a long break? Asking them if they’d like to join Reckless Yes was a no brainer – expect revved up high octane lo-fi garage pop that is sassier and catchier than ever!”
More details of their releases will follow but for now you can find Mower on Facebook and Twitter.
