MT have announced the release of a brand new EP, What We Are, this coming July, recorded in Berlin and London, the new EP release shows the ever-increasing length and breadth of what MT can deliver. Their reputation for infectious pop continues with the excellent new video for EP track Dear One which was unveiled this week.
Peeps unfamiliar with MT will be as immediately intrigued by this new video release as an established fan. It’s so funky and fresh, with a distinct 90’s edge. Initially drawn in by the cool visuals you’ll realise- hey, this songs good too! Which is what a good music video is supposed to do. With a super chirpy track and powerful gravelly vocals heralding back to favourites Reef. Another refreshing part of the video is the band themselves, each individual has their own unique style, conforming to no ones rules or expectations.
Not many bands can say they cut their teeth playing simultaneous residencies on the main stage of KOKO for Club NME and Ridley Road Market Bar (Wu’s). It’s no wonder MT have a reputation for euphoric live shows, prompting NME to tip the band as one of their 10 ‘Ones to Watch’ at last year’s Great Escape Festival.
Back on the road again this April, MT are heading up a ten-date UK tour, taking in Live at Leeds and Liverpool Sound City on the way, before heading out with Panic At The Disco for some huge shows including at the Hammersmith Apollo. With songs like these and shows like Secret Garden Party in the calendar, it’s looking like the Summer of MT.
