Following on from their ‘Induction Party’ EP, Mush are circulating their own
sonic mythology, blurring the lines between abstract surrealism,
existentialism and social commentary. Like its predecessor, ‘3D Routine’ is a
sensory overload of clattering, hooky guitar work. However, this time space
emerges between the onslaughts and, in this respite, room is found for new
emotional depth. More expansive than ever before, ‘3D Routine’ manages to
maintain the rawness of a classic debut but it’s experimentation and variety
portray a band unlikely to rest on their ‘guitar band’ chops.

Songwriter Dan Hyndman explains the genesis of the band as being “fairly
boiler plate,” a combination of friends old and new converging in Leeds postuni
to form a band predominantly united in their mutual affection for the
Pavement back catalogue. Finally settling on a line-up of Nick Grant (bass),
Tyson (guitar) and Phil Porter (drums) the band’s progression has taken
them far beyond this original vision.

Having garnered local attention in the early days for their unhinged and
often calamitous live shows in Leeds, it was the unlikely radio hit ‘Alternative
Facts’ (clocking in at an uncompromising ten minutes) that brought the
Mush to the attention of a wider audience. The song, one of the last
releases for the legendary Too Pure Singles Club, saw early support from
Marc Riley and others on BBC 6Music with them playing multiple sessions
and the follow up single, ‘Gig Economy’, hopping onto the 6Music playlist.

Roaming further afield from their hometown, Mush spent the first half of
2019 heading out around the UK, earning a reputation for their intense live
performances, supporting the likes of Girl Band, The Lovely Eggs, Yak,
Shame and Stereolab, as well as releasing the ‘Induction Party’ EP to great
acclaim. At the tail end of summer of 2019 Mush headed to Leeds’ Green
Mount Studio and, with Andy Savours (Dream Wife, Our Girl, My Bloody
Valentine) manning the mixing desk, their debut album, ‘3D Routine’ was
born.

The way in which the album brazenly moves from polished 3 minute punk
tracks to avant-garde spoken word to sardonic-political funk, whilst sounding
like the same band is testament to an uncompromisingly unrefined ethic and
compounds the jarring nature of Mush. Together, the songs form a unified,
abrasive, emotive, frenetic and entirely beguiling concoction of sound and
opinion, a fast-moving snapshot of current times, relatable, politically
minded and incredibly personal. Music for those who want their guitars loud
and weird and their political commentary a little less ‘on the nose’.
