A Passing Phrase -- OUT SEPTEMBER 3RD, 2016
Since moving to Seattle from their sleepy Northern California hometown of Chico, CA, The Mondegreens have done nothing but grow. Whether or not the PNW city's prolific indie/rock scene was what infused their California folk/rock sound with rain-streaked grit, their impending 2019 sophomore LP represents a departure from their earlier work. It still contains the ever present three-part harmonies and wide dynamic swings that defined their younger years, but also explores how diverse changes in meter and key can meet pop sensibility.
The group’s two frontmen, David Friedlander and Russell Rabut, draw on over a decade of singing together, spinning harmonic webs across the peaks and valleys of the group’s vibrant sound, their voices as likely to combine over a selection from Neil Young’s back catalog, as a slacker rock anthem from their youth. They founded the band amidst the throes of a wild 2013 Christmas party, and Along with drummer, Scotty Jenkins, toured the western U.S. for three years, before relocating to Seattle’s fertile ground. the lineup has since expanded to include accompanists, Joe Davis (guitar), and Noah Kapioski (keyboard), both of whom draw on classical backgrounds.
2018 brought the groups first national tour, appearances at major PNW festivals like summer meltdown and fremont solstice Fair, and headlining slots at seattle’s major clubs. With a new record on the way and a growing set up tour dates to support it, 2019 already looks quite bright.
