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 their forthcoming EP I Hope That You Feel The Same, out this summer. The single So Kind was released in March to positive reviews, accompanied by the follow-up single Let It All Fall Down; out May 24. The self-produced album was heavily recorded live off the floor with Calvin Hartwick at Dreamhouse Studios in Toronto, seeing the band embark into new territories of sound and concept.
