Mile Me Deaf – ‘Capable Ride’
Posted on August 18, 2015
This week we were introduced to a great new band from Austria called Mile Me Deaf. The musical collective from Vienna have an addictive and infectious lo-fi, fuzzy pop sound that we cannot get enough of.
Since 2004 Wolfgang Möstl is the only constant member of the project, which started as a lo-fi experimental playground of the then 20-year-old singer and guitarist of the late Killed by 9V Batteries. And as often is the case, this solo project turned into a full time band. Most songs are written and recorded by Wolfgang Möstl in his living room, but on stage they are a fully functional, shoegazing, rock and roll cabaret.
Their latest track to stream online is called ‘Capable Ride’ and is a shoe gaze dream. We love the lo-fi style of the writing and production, driven by jangly guitars and fuzzy beats. It’s a huge alt-pop summer anthem in waiting, perfect for making the most out of the final weeks of sunshine.
You can catch Mile Me Deaf next month during their short UK tour, including a date at Soup Kitchen, Manchester on September 18th.
