Mestizo is the highly anticipated debut album from Mongrel State, Americana/rock n’ rollers who have been lauded by critics (“Is there a better country rock band in Ireland?” – Goldenplec) and fans alike for the last year or so. Known for their incendiary live shows, the band have brought all of their musical nous to bear on this work, creating a record that draws heavily on diverse influences such as stomping Southern Rock, Rockabilly & New Orleans Swing, mixing it up with a cinematic sensibility.
The name of the album – meaning “Mongrel” in Spanish – also belies the latin origin of some of the band members. This also comes across in the sound of the album, in flourishes like mariachi trumpet solos and Spanish guitar trills.
