MUTES have fun with new track, ‘A Burial’

It's a teaser from the band's upcoming debut, ‘No Desire’.
Boasting members of both God Damn and Viv Albertine, MUTES are about to release their debut album – check out teaser track ‘A Burial’ below, first on Dork.

It’s the second taste of full-length ‘No Desire’, due for release on 2nd June (pre-order your copy here), and sees the band trying something a little different…

“‘A Burial’ is a short, sharp diatribe against complexity, sonically speaking,” says frontman James Brown. “I’m actually quite surprised I went through with recording this song, never mind putting it out. It’s quite anti-Mutes I think.

“I wrote it as a little ditty when I realised that being heavy wasn’t so frowned upon locally thanks to God Damn, Youth Man et al. Maybe I’m just too pretentious to admit that I like the song because I find it so ridiculous?

“Anyhow, the video is suitably OTT and I must say, it’s always a blast to play live.”
