Birmingham band Mutes have been described as 'noise rock' by some, but don't let that fool you - they're not all noise and no substance. They bring in elements of ambirnce and dream-pop to create an intricately crafted atmosphere that's as gentle as it is loud and in-your-face, and it's those intricacies that have gotten them slots opening for Happyness, God Damn, and Slaves.

On 29 June via One Note Forever, Mutes will release their brand new EP Starvation Age which is monumental for quite a few reasons - not only are we premiering EP cut 'Holy Terror' today, but it also marks the band's first full band release. What starts off as a fast paced, reverb-heavy garage rock track quickly transforms into something almost unrecognizable by the end of its 5-and-a-half-minute run time - it's at about the 2 minute mark that its hazy, almost shoegaze tendencies shine through, and it's an absolute treasure when it happens.
