Mountain Bike started in the summer of 2012 by musicians with distinct backgrounds. They all were or are still active in other musical projects like Thee Marvin Gays, Warm Toy Machine as well as in solo projects like Billy Joe or June Moan. What makes Mountain Bike special is the way they intergrate the power and the energy of garage rock in pop composition . Far from clichés, Mountain Bike’s ambition is to rid any boundaries and to explore their ecletic influences in an unprejudiced way. Their influences consist of a wide array of artists, ranging from Beck, Ty Segall and Deerhunter to Mikal Cronin and Grandaddy. The result is a refreshing cocktail of exciting and poppy melodies with a touch of nonchalance.
Carried by the inimitable voice of French born Etienne (aka Kinkle), the shimmering guitars of Aurélien (aka June Moan), the roaring bass of Stefano (aka Billy Joe) and the rhythms of Charles (aka Nerveux), Mountain Bike’s feel good songs provide the ideal soundtrack to a mid summer cook out amongst friends.
With well over 150 gigs and a first 7 inch single on their track record, these “Bruxellois by adoption” released their first self-titled album in the Spring of ’14. Consisting of 11 tracks, recorded and mixed at Snapshot Studios in Brussels by Pierre Vaffrey, this first attempt plunges you into a pop universe with vague boundaries, a place for catchy chants and choruses (I Lost My Hopes In Paradise, Japanese Guitar), ballads (Hangin’ Around, Just Good Friends) and genuine garage rock (Cigogne, ‘Got Power, Torture). Clocking in at exactly 40 minutes, Mountain Bike have birthed a consistent album, shining their own casual light on 50 years of pop music.
