ANGER FUELED ALT-ROCK TRIO, MAWPIT HAVE BURST ONTO THE SCENE WITH ANTHEMIC SINGLE ‘NATURE’S CURSE.’
‘Nature’s Curse’ is the debut single from Mawpit, a Cardiff band formed in late 2019, made up of Cait (vocals), Jordan (guitar) and Aled (drums). The trio describe their sound-world as ‘an unworldly amalgamation of grit and finesse’ with influences from pop, soul and jazz.
This new fierce track is written from Mother Earth’s perspective about the rising issue of climate change and the Australian bush fires, ‘your greed will be the death of you, And you’ll be the death of me.’ Mawpit are not afraid of tackling big issues in society and politics with their music, and the angst and relevance of the track remind me of ‘Circus’ by The Hara, another single written at the time of the bush fires.
Grunge-style rock drums and roaring guitar riffs open the single but are met with Cait’s raw punk influenced vocals. Mawpit are proving from the outset that they know how to create music that will capture an audience both through headphones and live.
