Mammoth Penguins: Hide And Seek

Mammoth Penguins debut album Hide and Seek is very cool. Far from simply trying to recapture any old Indie magic, the band – led by former Standard Fare bassist Emma Kupa – have allowed themselves to make fun, interesting music whilst also exploring the trappings of being a slightly neurotic and beleaguered twenty-eight year-old. This new phase of Kupa’s career sees her focusing more on songwriting, singing and the occasional guitar solo alongside pop bassist Mark Boxall and drummer Tom Barden.

Everything about the tonal shouting and chipper chord slides reminds me of acts I used to love, like Electrelane and Good Shoes on tracks such as “Work It Out” and “Strength In My Legs” or Laura Marling & Noah and the Whale during more folkish songs such as “Postcard”. Hide and Seek is released on July 10.
