Biography

Heralding from the mighty suburban Watford on the outskirts of London, Mohair are four like-minded souls in a sea of commuting carcasses.

The band wrote prolifically from the outset and then set about touring hard, using experiences from both to fine tune their writing style and capture the dynamism of their live shows. The end of their final tour early last year saw them decamp to the lowlands of Scotland, where they sought inspiration to write their first album.

‘Small Talk’ was barely complete when it unwittingly found its way to the other side of the Atlantic where the legendary management duo of Q Prime’s Peter Mensch and Cliff Burnstein signed them to their new ‘Grunion’ label.

Having now remixed the album with QPrime’s backing, the legendary John Goodmanson (Hot Hot Heat, Wu Tang, Blonde Redhead) has captured the band’s the live feel, so much so that the band will re-release Small Talk in the UK.

The results speak for themselves. Mohair’s sizzling diversity finds itself wrapped up in 40 minutes of filthed-up rockers and climactic epics.

With a UK Top 10 ‘Indie’ single, support continuing to build from the music press, national newspapers, BBC and independent radio, a self owned UK label, a US deal and 3 national tours in the last 12 months, Mohair are all set to hit the US.

With critically acclaimed performances at Eurosonic and SXSW, (‘Band of SXSW’ - LA Times) Mohair has begun developing strong international foundations. Their stellar live reputation has been further enhanced with two huge performances at Club NME at London’s KoKo and British Music Week in Berlin.
