Since their foundation in 1998, Múm have forged a sublimely bright, warm and rich take on electronica, imprinting it with their own unique sound and character. What sets the band apart from so many of their peers is both their strong, playfully haunted melodies, and sorcerous integration of analogue and digital technologies. Playing an assortment of instruments and percussion alongside some crisply programmed electronic washes, beats, dingdongs and beep-beeps, as well as found sounds and field recordings, the band’s talent, inventiveness and nose for musical exploration is immediately audible.
On their 4th album, Go Go Smear The Poison Ivy, Múm have created a colourful, twitching & playful work of art, full of life affirming energy. And to celebrate they will be returning to Australia this March for their first visit since September 2003.
