Their sound has been likened to Queens of the Stone Age, The Stooges, Black Sabbath, PJ Harvey and “Alice in Chains with a female singer”, with songs described as having “enough hooks to fill a fisherman’s basket” (Stonerking – Blog, UK). They have drawn influence from a wide range of rock and punk acts from the 1970s, through 90’s grunge, alternative and desert/stoner rock right up to the current heavy psyche. After spending several years honing their lineup, sound and live show, Mother Mooch – whose core members Sid Daly, Farl and actress/DJ Chloë Ní Dhúada (2014’s critically acclaimed “Out of Here”), were joined and inspired by highly regarded drummer Danni Nolan (known for her work with Dermot Lambert, Grace Wilde and Niamh Crowther) and innovative bassist Barry Hayden – shifted gears in 2015, taking their first steps into Ireland’s festival scene with  performances at Canalaphonic, KnockanStockan and a storming set at Electric Picnic’s Oxjam Stage. Since the release of their EP/Demo “Preludes” in March, they have been attracting fans from around the globe – UK, US, Japan, Argentina, Brazil, Germany, Greece, Netherlands, Belgium, France and more. During this time Mother Mooch have also grabbed the attention of national and international music media with Pure M calling them “Effortlessly cool” and stating “It’s clear there are few acts with a brighter future in Dublin”. In July 2015, underground website Doomed& selected Mother Mooch’s song “Into The Water” for inclusion on their latest compilation album “The Enchanter’s Ball”, which highlights the rise of female fronted heavy rock bands from around the world. On Saturday 14th November 2015, Mother Mooch will finally launch their long awaited full length debut album “Nocturnes” – recorded by sound wizard and Steve Albini fanatic Gary Duncan at Red Lake Sound Studios, Portlaoise – with their biggest headline show to date at Whelan’s of Wexford Street, Dublin. Mother Mooch will release “Nocturnes” on Friday 13th November, 2015 – Pre-order here: The album’s first single “My Song 21” will be released on Friday, 23rd October.
