5 childhood friends from the San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles, augmented by 3 mid-western transplants, The Mowgli's are a quintessential California band. Inspired by the magnetism of San Francisco, the grind of Los Angeles and the serenity of the Big Sur Coast, their songs are a joyous revival of rock n' roll, a twisting indie-folk dance and a heartfelt protest ballad.
Sliding from indie pop to country and a host of genres in between, the band evokes modern artists such as Fun., Grouplove and Edward Sharpe And the Magnetic Zeros, whilst having their roots in the music of Neil Young, The Byrds, The Beach Boys and Fleetwood Mac.
Part 60's Laurel Canyon, part 70's Venice Beach and part 10's Silverlake, the band and the harmonies are held together by their message of universal love, peace and the belief that the highest form of consciousness is achieved by togetherness and unity.
Uplifting, collaborative, joyous and communal, their songs are a walk through their life thus far: Meeting each other ("Hi Hey There Hello"), experiencing together ("San Francisco", "The Great Divide", "I've Been Around"), fighting and making up (“Colin's Song”), emerging stronger ("Carry Your Will", "We Are Free") - their message is finding a foothold with fans from every walk of life, bringing people together under one roof to celebrate each other.
We express our experiences as a shared unit , through music and an agreement of sound. No one always gets along, but with lows come highs and fighting always has an end. we accept struggle and are passionate about the lives we lead. We create the music that comes naturally to us and we're not afraid of change. We have all made changes for better and for worse but whats done is done and we are thrilled with the present. We all have a story to tell and whether it's audible, visual, silence or motion, we cant hide the fact that we are constantly creating new moments to share. We are American Authors from Brooklyn, New york.
"This is one of those bands that's so good, you simply cannot understand why the world hasn't discovered it yet. Buried Beds is a pop group - no apology necessary, because doing pure pop well (i.e. not boring people to death) is a high-wire act not too many people can pull off. The band was formed in 2003 by Philadelphia indie music mainstay Brandon Beaver (how's that for a pre-existing stage name!) and Eliza Jones. Check out the latest Buried Beds collection, Tremble the Sails, to understand what talented people can do with piano, acoustic guitar, banjo and violin. The arrangements are lush and interesting, the lyrics focused and funny, and the vocal harmonies are Beach Boys good. All the vocals, by the way, were recorded at home, with the band members in their PJs."
