Mt. Doubt release their first new music of 2016 on April 30th with a 7″ single featuring two new tracks Afterglow and Hotel Key. The single is released through the much missed and much loved Scottish Fiction and purchasing the vinyl will give you access to two remixes of Afterglow by two members of Machines In Heaven under their Magic Daddy and blood blood aliases.
As we’ve already come to expect from Mt, Doubt, Afterglow is a masterclass in quiet-loud-quiet dynamics but, as ever, there’s more to this than just that. Leo Bargery’s sombre yet still uplifting lyrics add layers of emotion to the song and the whole package contains much to delight. Hotel Key reveals a starker, more subdued side to Mt. Doubt, and you can easily imagine listening intently to the song in a dark, smoky, bar somewhere. It’s a lovely track.

Mt. Doubt really is one of the most intriguing acts out there just now. As I mentioned before, the band that is put together for their live shows is superb and Leo is quite the frontman. What are superb songs on this single, will doubtless have new life breathed into them when they’re played at the single launch at Glasgow’s Hug & Pint on 30 April. I’d recommend you get along. The link for tickets and the special 7″ single and ticket bundle can be found below.
Afterglow shows why Mt. Doubt is destined for great things. Get into this band now before everyone does.
