Mock Media’s debut LP ‘Mock Media II’ captures this firebrand four piece’s head-on plunge into enthralling existential contradictions: songs that explore the darkest corners of humanity, yet come out at the other end with the unwavering joy that marked their genesis. It’s an album of sneaky eclecticism: the high-wired punk rock stylings serve as Mock Media’s framework to clad their agog explorations into pop, electronic and world folk music.
Speaking for themselves, the weight of life, and its many detours and deviations, hasn’t deterred Mock Media from engaging in more misadventures together, the tumultuous kind that comes with the territory when performing in a band. It’s the requisite honeymoon phase prolonged by bad weather, or a beam of light emerging from a dark prism. To spread one's wings, the gravity below needs to be reckoned with.
