Starting out as Leo Bargery’s solo project, Edinburgh-based Mt. Doubt has since expanded into a collective of six musicians, each bringing something unique to the table. Now, the sextet are here to release their new EP The Loneliness Of The TV Watchers, out now via Scottish Fiction Records and is available to buy and stream on iTunes and Spotify.
The video for their latest single Reference Books, which premiered on The List is also available to watch on Mt. Doubt's YouTube channel.
The single originally premiered on Team Rock and is also available to stream via Mt. Doubt's Soundcloud page now.
The video for Mt. Doubt's previous single Tourists premiered on The National and is also available to watch via Mt. Doubt's YouTube channel.
Mt. Doubt has also shared B-side track Let Us Prey, which is loosely focused on the disheartening realisation that life's expectations rarely match up with reality. The track is available to stream via Mt Doubt's Soundcloud page now.
Reflecting on the everyday sense of disillusionment and fear that affects all of us, The Loneliness Of The TV Watchers is a heartfelt collection of indie-rock ballads. From the luscious harmonies and uptempo beats of Tourists - which is inspired by Bargery’s fear of flying - to the poetic lyricism and sweeping melodies of ‘Purity’, each track offers an insight into the banality of everyday life. As Bargery’s impassioned, deep baritone flows, with strong shades of the likes of The National or Frightened Rabbit, each anthemic creation tugs at the heartstrings with a twinkling honesty.
Since the release of their critically acclaimed albums In Awe Of Nothing and My Past Is A Quiet Beast, Mt. Doubt have received praise from the likes of The Scotsman, The National, The Skinny as well as BBC 6Music and BBC Radio Scotland to name but a few. They are also no strangers to the Scottish live circuit, having performed at T In the Park, Brew At The Bog and supported We Were Promised Jetpacks, Admiral Fallow and White Lies amongst others.
