Next on MIMR special Band Chats with acts playing this year’s Focus Wales festival is Wrexham, guitar-pop foursome Mowbird. They impressed with their last record ‘Islander’ last year and 2015 promises more of the same. I spoke to Ben from the band about news of the next record and his favourite bands from this year’s festival
MIMR: Thanks for talking to MIMR again, whats the latest with Mowbird?
Ben: It’s mega – this is our third Focus Wales and I think it’ll be the best one yet. You really have to be on your game as all of the bands performing are brilliant. We really love meeting all of the people that come to see us, so be sure to say hi!
Ben: Once again, we are clashing with a Welsh superstar at St Giles – last year it was Euros Childs, this year it’s Sweet Baboo. We’ll be dashing back from a wedding reception to catch Bo Ningen and Moja on Saturday night and we’ll be trying to see Samoans, Trecco Beis, The Wobbly Hearts and Seazoo of course!
Ben: Candylion – Gruff Rhys, My Girls – Animal Collective and probably Oh Mary – Ty Segall.
