Mt. Doubt – Mouthwash (Video Premiere)
Watch the new video for Mouthwash by Edinburgh's Mt. Doubt
Edinburgh band Mt. Doubt have had a pretty busy 2017; they released a split AA-side with Foreignfox in March, their The Loneliness of the TV Watchers EP in June, and now they’re set to release another EP – Moon Landings – on 3 Nov.
Starting out as the solo project of Leo Bargery, Mt. Doubt has since expanded into more of a collective of musicians with a real focus on additional vocals from Annie Booth and keys from Ryan Firth. Mouthwash is the first single to be taken from their upcoming Moon Landings EP and is easily Mt. Doubt's poppiest-sounding track to date with its catchy synth lines and perfectly balanced harmonies.
You can watch the video for Mouthwash in the player above. Of the single, Bargery tells us: "Mouthwash is a bit of a contradiction really; it’s probably the most upbeat, outright-pop song I’ve ever written but beyond the shimmery synths and the jangle it’s actually one of our more bleak tunes...
"I really am happy with the opening line – 'I feel like I’ve been beaten half to death by Forest Whitaker'. In a way it’s quite disconcerting and I’d like to think the whole song continues on a similarly uneasy keel. It sort of buys into the idea that nothing is ever quite as it seems and the video very much follows that ethos on a part-bizarre, part-playful jaunt around Chateaux Doubt…"
Moon Landings is released via Scottish Fiction on 3 Nov
