Toronto-based trio The Mooks combine their jangly power pop sound with spirited melodies and enduring structures to recall a myriad of influences, taking nods from bygone-era rhythm and blues to gleaming indie rock.

Formed in late 2017, the group independently released their debut EP Singles on June 1, 2018. After a heap of performances in 2018 (including spots at CMW & Indie Week), the group has cemented their reputation as one of the most exciting, up and coming acts out of Toronto.

In 2019, the group re-emerge with the jubilant single So Kind, set for release on March 1, 2019. The single comes off their forthcoming EP I Hope That You Feel The Same, due later this year. The album was recorded with Calvin Hartwick at Dreamhouse Studios in Toronto, and sees the band embark into new territories of sound and concept.

Join the band on March 2nd at The Horseshoe Tavern in Toronto to celebrate the release of the single So Kind.

The Canadian trio appear to have figured out the deceptively simple, age-old secret to transcending influences: just write irresistible songs.
