Catalan teens MOURN have released their first videoclip, directed by Roger Guàrdia and produced by CANADA for “Your brain is made of candy,” one of the songs included in their first, self-titled album (Sones, 2014). Melancholy, rage and despair are expressed by blunt drums, melodic guitar progressions and a ripen up voice that inevitably recalls PJ Harvey. Combined with an almost aggressive succession of shots in a grisaille ensemble, the video captures and enhances the intimate howl of the song. MOURN got a lot of buzz at the end of 2014 with their signing to NY label Captured Tracks (which will release their album on the 17th February in the US). They are going to tour extensively (both in Europe and in the US) in 2015, so be ready to hear a lot from them in the future.
