Mourn / Aivery

Mittwoch, 7. November

Mourn´s third full-length, Sorpresa Familia, arrives at the tail end of a professional rough patch for the Catalonian indie quartet. A year before the release of 2016´s stark Ha, Ha, He., the band went public with allegations of mismanagement on the part of their Spanish label, Sones, which Mourn accused of non-payment of income and holding the released album “hostage.” Since then, both parties have parted ways. Sorpresa Familia (which translates to “Surprise Family” in Spanish) is the resulting chronicle of the group´s frustration and eventual resolution.

Amid the lyrics´ allusions to lost investments, tour mishaps, and divorce, Sorpresa Familia conveys the kind of angry passion that comes with working through your shit. The album—unquestionably Mourn´s tightest and strongest release to date—is the latest and most aggressive progression in sound for these four very young people (co-vocalists and guitarists Carla Pérez Vas and Jazz Rodríguez Bueno, the band´s oldest members, were born in 1996). Their 2015 self-titled debut possessed a dark swagger, and Ha, Ha, He. moved Mourn´s sound into the colder territory of post-punk, but Sorpresa Familia cuts a distinctly punkish figure, the brisk pace bolstered by Antonio Postius´ ferocious drumming. There´s a level of unbothered confidence on display, which often comes from getting older and realizing your true strengths.

Mourn have previously shown that they know their way around a melody or two, but even by those standards Sorpresa Familia bursts with color. There´s a greater emphasis on melodic intricacy and detail, from the wistful, winding guitar lines of “Epilogue” to the rolling harmonies on “Candle Man,” which builds to the band´s biggest chorus to date. Even the stop-start lurch of “Doing It Right,” which in its closing seconds thrashes in a way recalling Danish punk heroes Iceage, is cut with guitar hooks that dart and weave like scrambling fighter jets. In their short careers thus far, Mourn have already proved that they can make urgent, punk-infused indie practically in their sleep. Sorpresa Familia´s strongest moments showcase a maturity of songcraft without sacrificing their youthful intensity. (pitchfork)

“Hohe Ansprüche und eine Punkattitüde sind die Eckpfeiler des musikalischen Schaffens von Aivery, seit Jasmin Maria Rilke (git, voc) und Doris Zimmermann (dr) sich über eine Anzeige am WC eines Wiener Studierendenlokals fanden. Am Girls Rock Camp 2012 stieß schließlich Franziska Schwarz (b, voc) dazu. Eine EP ist bereits in Planung. Neben der großen Heldin Kim Gordon stehen dafür auch Vertreterinnen der Riot Grrrl Bewegung wie Hole und Bikini Kill Patin für das Vorhaben von Aivery.” (Astrid Exner, Walzerkönig)
