Pray For Mojo arrive on the scene with their debut single Landslide which is a rich slice of psych rock that stands out reckons Wayne AF Carey…

Recommendations are always welcome when you are snowed under with hundreds of releases a day and these are no exception. A refreshing sound that gives hints of the large psych scene available at the moment. Hailing from Warrington, Pray For Mojo are within sniffing distance of the Mersey and have probably inhaled some of that magic air floating upstream from the Liverpool scene that has flourished for a while now. Think, King Gizzard, The Osees, (even Ride) they reckon and you get the picture. The video is trippy as fuck with a homage to the bonkers Monty Python’s Flying Circus running throughout. The debut album is in the pipeline and promises to be an interesting venture as you’ve heard here first…

What the band say:

“Capturing an almost apocalyptic feeling of loss, both physically and spiritually, as well as a loss of personal control with the underlying feeling of the need to rebuild, the single is accompanied by a visual by the band’s own Christian Monaghan (Eaten Alive Illustrations) that demonstrates the single’s message on a societal level. With a pounding rhythm section and interweaving guitars, the song builds to a climax on its bellowed chorus, running to a trademark epic outro, and is, what the band believe to be the perfect introduction to Mojopia, for the people.”

Upcoming live dates:
24th September – Not A Cult Festival
5th October – West Street Live, Sheffield
6th October – Astral Elevator @ The Peer Hat, Manchester
