The win of a GEM Award and the recent signing to Broeknrule Records has only confirmed what is already widely known, that MOWGLEE are the best new band! But rather than encouraging a mood of complacency, achieving this Gospel Entertainment Music Award in November 2003 has launched the band on a mission. A mission to save the UK, the world, the universe and anywhere else from the bland, the uninspiring and the ordinary that currently is music.
The world’s a stage and MOWGLEE are primed to play the lead role in a major global production. Local Birmingham label Kingship Music provided a platform by releasing the boys debut EP, ‘GO,’ in 2001 to great acclaim. Steady gigging in local Midland venues and festivals such as Greenbelt have further enhanced the band’s growing reputation. Anything but predictable the band have shared stages with Cornershop, Shekinah, and Lily Savage?embarrassing for sure but Cornershop have come on a lot since then!
Mowglee’s newly recorded album “ Revolutionized” independantly released at the end of 2004 is set to propel them into the stratosphere – a formidable collection of songs empowered by exceptional lyrics. Ethnic beats, raw guitars and gloriously rich melodies combine to create an indie / rock sound that may have resulted had the Charlatans been fed on vindaloos, basted with the harmonious tones of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and slow cooked in the urban melting pot that is Birmingham. But this rich mix of east meets west is perfectly balanced, satisfying and delighting those with even the most discerning of palettes.
The time is here the time is now, see the vision share the dream. You need Mowglee because it’s a jungle out there!!
