Mongoose is a musical melty-pot, combining the vocals, instrument-playing and songwriting of four women – Molly O’Mahony, Ailbhe Dunne, Muireann Ní Cheannabháin and Cara Dunne.

‘Suck the Wound’ is a darker piece of work than the band’s first album ‘Mongoose’ (2015), both sonically and thematically. Exploring different sounds and textures, this album is prickly and hard to define. The genres of the songs vary widely, from rock, to a South American bolero, to jazz, to folk, all tied together by Mongoose’s tight four part vocal harmonies. As the title suggests, the album is one of struggle and healing. It will be launched in Whelan’s on 16 May, followed by an Irish tour.

“A vocal powerhouse with a line in charming yet incisive idiosyncrasy, Mongoose are an act unafraid of being true to their boundless, abstract and vibrantly coloured creative selves. A must for lovers of musical ingenuity and adventurous atmospherics.” – DervSwerve music blog, 2017.
