Mt. Cleverest’s climb to the top will be documented. Forming in 2016, the band have quickly gained momentum as their robust alt-rock indie-rap sound has spread through the scene like wildfire. The boys from Perth have impressed locally with singles like “That Girl” and garnered international praise with the recent single “These Nights”. With the release of their debut EP ‘Money’ in 2018, Mt. Cleverest aren’t showing any signs of slowing down.
Recorded and mixed by Andrew Lawson (Debaser Studios) and mastered by William Bowden, ‘Money’ serves as the professional introduction to the band’s genre-blending sound, tied together by themes of mortality, greed, money, love and power. The EP explores these heavy themes in a highly listenable sense, with infectious guitars and catchy hooks sprawled throughout the project.
The funk-rap stylings of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, the clever guitar layers of the Arctic Monkeys, and the powerful breakdowns of Royal Blood combine as the perfect canvas for lead singer Christian Mechler’s powerful vocals and equally powerful messages to hit home.
With their debut EP finally out in the world, the band are wasting no time in embarking on their first ever tour. Shows are booked across their home state of Western Australia, kicking off at The Rosemount Hotel, Perth, on September 6, before hitting the gorgeous south west.
