Biography

your ten mofo create their own individual versions of hymns always one step off the beaten track of established musical understanding; a dulcet melody on the verge of silence, a fragile whisper out of a remote crevasse, a violin slowly working its way to the foreground; gradually, one perceives fragments presented as a whole. Structured grooves and bass lines direct the way through the imagined landscapes – landscapes that are finally completed by instruments like vibraphone, glockenspiel and strings. One finally catches oneself enjoying getting lost in the wondrous world of sound - a touching world, but without leaving the least cliched or cheesy smack.

***

Living up to the cliche that wonderfully weightless music could only originate from the dark high up north, your ten mofo immediately would have to pack their stuff and best move to Iceland. This is not going to happen. Why? - because they are busy releasing their debut-album and by doing so setting a pleasant counterpoint to the multitudinous guitar based pop-productions in their Austrian home base.

Since early 2004 the four musicians Michael and Florian Parzer, David Punz and Stefan Hartl have been working together. Inspired by well known protagonists of the Icelandic school (Sigur ros, Mum) your ten mofo knew from the beginning that they would not be doing party-gigs for biker-meetings. In fact, they wanted to compose atmospherically beautiful songs which impress by their diversity in instrumentation.
