THE MOWGLI’S ANNOUNCE THEIR NEW EP "I WAS STARTING TO WONDER'
+ FALL TOUR DATES
The Mowgli’s will be releasing a four song EP I Was Starting to Wonder on August 17th. The EP includes two previously released singles “Real Good Life” and “Kansas City” and two new tracks “I Feel Good About This” and “Best of Us.” Both of the new songs offer a glimpse into the band’s life: On the road where missing family and friends is balanced by the excitement of new experiences; and reflection on their personal lives as they’ve grown up in the group together. “Kansas City”, which is currently The Mowgli’s 3rd highest streaming song reflects on more intimate themes of dealing with personal struggles. Ultimately though, the EP is a celebration of life in all its forms and contrasts.
“From political unjust and ‘fake news’ to climate change and tragic natural disasters, it's difficult to see the good things sometimes. But if anyone can do it, it's The Mowgli's.” - Pop Crush
The band took this celebration on the road with the Real Good Life tour earlier this year, a run that saw them go back into more intimate venues to re-establish that close connection with fans. Starting the tour with the release of the “Real Good Life” single, they wrapped up in Kansas City, releasing the song “Kansas City” the evening before. These club dates were followed by a trip to Honduras and Guantanamo Bay for back-to-back July 4th shows entertaining the Armed Forces, an experience that was profoundly memorable for the whole band.
The band also wrote and performed the title track to Disney TV’s new animated series “Big City Greens”. Directors The Houghton Brothers sought the band out specifically to capture the raucous excitement embodied by main character Cricket Green.

Formed in 2010 by the coalescing of a Venice music collective, The Mowgli’s began as a 10+ member group playing house parties and warehouse gatherings. The release of their first major-label LP Waiting For The Dawn in 2013 saw immediate success with the hit single “San Francisco." The record - which focused on the joy of bringing people together - immediately connected in a cynical world. The band quickly found themselves playing to sold out crowds in clubs around the U.S. and inundated by requests for press, sponsorships and partnerships. Appearances at Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, Firefly, Osheaga, Bottlerock and many other festivals followed as did performances on The Tonight Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Conan and a stint as the SXSW House band for Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live (Bravo).
To support the EP the band will heading out on the road in November playing shows on the West Coast.
