Bio

Mogerlaine are thrilled to announce the release of new EP Contemplations on May 1st, followed by an Australian launch tour.

Recorded at Island Studios, mastered at Abbey Road Studios and produced with the support of Arts South Australia, the four-track EP is over a year in the making. It showcases the band's sharpest, deepest and most vibrant guitar-slinging work to date.

Contemplations will be released via digital and streaming formats, as well as a super-limited 10" vinyl release available via Bandcamp and at tour shows.

Hailing from the inner suburbs of Adelaide, South Australia, Mogerlaine revive the guitar-laced sound of new wave music with a dark twist.

Mogerlaine began in 2014 as the songwriting project of Nicholas Pipe. He joined with drummer Ash Matthews to record a debut EP in 2015 – blending the melodic guitar style of 1980s new wave with grungier rock elements and atmospheric effects.

Soon after the self-titled EP was in the can, Mogerlaine became a full band, including musical polymath Jordan Belperio on bass (who picked up the instrument just to join the band) and a succession of second guitarists – a role currently held down by the jazz-trained Matteo Grilli.

Meanwhile, the band's discography has grown from the debut EP to include a string of singles, charting a refinement of the band's sound with each effort as they go from strength to strength in the studio. With support from Arts South Australia, the band will release their second EP 'Contemplations' in May 2019, and embark on an Australian launch tour.

I reckon you'd be safe to entrust Mogerlaine with your password going from the care and cleanliness that they treat their songs with. Upright and correct indie rock sounds.
