THE MOWGLI’S RELEASE AMERICAN FEELINGS EP

LISTEN TO AMERICAN FEELINGS: HERE

 [A] richly textured and rhythmic track…”

Billboard on “Norman Rockwell”

 

Southern California’s torchbearers of alt. rock positivity, The Mowgli’s have released their new EP American Feelings. The first three singles “Hard to Love,” “Mr. Telephone” and “Norman Rockwell” that have been released have received incredible feedback from fans and critics alike, and have garnered over 600K streams.

 “‘Hard To Love”’ makes you want to dance to the lively rhythm despite the vocalists’ words about being “a little bit hard to love.” - Alternative Press

 “The Mowgli’s build a case against mediocrity by mourning complacency. They depict an average American, craving so much more than what a day-in-the-life has to offer.” –Heart Eyes Magazine

  "I can't thank @Themowglis enough for creating music that is so pure and honest to what its like living in the world today.  #NormanRockwell” - Anthony Scardina via Twitter

 From their beginning as a music collective in Venice Beach, California, The Mowgli’s have been writing songs of love, unity, and togetherness. Their break out hit “San Francisco” brought them national attention and cemented the band as indie-rockers with purpose and a message. Two subsequent albums and an independent EP have captured an ever-growing fanbase drawn to their feel-good anthems. As they’ve grown, the group has balanced their positive music with songs that give a window into the trials of a working band: Juggling relationships, friendships and adulthood with the rigors of constant touring. With American Feelings, The Mowgli’s have, perhaps surprisingly, found greater bonds than ever before: If nothing else, the path is shared and those sharing it have an intimate knowledge of what the journey feels like.

 

"I’m totally not crying. Feeling this song so much right now. Proud of you all! Homies, go listen to their new song! It’s so good! ❤️ @Themowglis - Norman Rockwell.” - Kaylynn Michelle via Twitter

 

“we need to talk about it...it being the  newest @Themowglis song... i'm in love.”  - Kayla Jonas via Twitter

 

The theme of connection and the lack thereof in our modern world is woven throughout the four songs that make up American Feelings. They all touch on the lack of discourse and engagement prevalent in society today, especially with technology serving as both a facilitator and barrier. “Mr. Telephone” serves up social commentary on our relationships with devices, over a subtly hypnotic, yet infectious melody.  “Norman Rockwell” sees the band take a more maudlin melodic turn with the song's protagonist painting himself into a new world in his mind to escape the monotony of his current life. “Hard to Love,” the very first single from the EP, confronts the complicated idea of self-acceptance, over the bands signature sweeping melodies.  Rounding out the EP is “Talk About It,” a bouncing track about forgiveness and communicating through difficult situations.

 

“The EP slides into a hypnotic space with alt-rock head bobber with “Mr. Telephone”. “Norman Rockwell”, a hazy and laid-back song finds it’s lyrical roots in every youth’s disenfranchised America; and stomping, rolling rocker “Talk About It” snaps the EP closed succinctly.” - AMFM Magazine

 

“the new @Themowglis EP has my newest favorite songs, there's something to connect to in the lyrics of every one and they're all beautiful and catchy as HELL.”

- Joey via Twitter

 

The Mowgli’s - who began as a 10+ member group playing house parties and warehouse gatherings - is now comprised of singer/guitarists Colin Dieden & Josh Hogan, singer Katie Jayne Earl, drummer Andy Warren, keys player David Appelbaum and Matt Di Panni on bass. The release of their first major-label LP Waiting For The Dawn in 2013 saw immediate success with the hit single “San Francisco” and 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. The band’s music has accumulated 250 Million streams and counting, and they’ve graced the stages of major festivals such as Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, ACL, Firefly, Osheaga, Arroyo Seco, BottleRock, Bumbershoot and more. They’ve worked with major international brands such as Spotify, Abercrombie, Levi’s, GM, Dunkin’ Donuts, VW and Verizon and continue to spread their message of positivity not only through their music but through their work with charities such as Heal The Bay, Happy Bottoms and the International Rescue Committee. The Mowgli’s will be playing songs from American Feelings on their co-headlining tour with Jukebox the Ghost this month.

THE MOWGLI’S RELEASE “MR. TELEPHONE” SINGLE FROM AMERICAN FEELINGS EP DUE OUT MARCH 1

Mr. Telephone.jpg

California alt. rockers The Mowgli’s have released “Mr. Telephone,” the second single from their forthcoming EP American Feelings out March 1. The four songs that make up American Feelings all harken to the lack of discourse and engagement prevalent in society today, especially with technology serving as both a facilitator and barrier.

“Mr. Telephone” was written from observing the feelings of isolation, anxiety and the lack of connection in fans, friends, family and society as a whole, much of it fueled by technology. “With social media creating transparency, we can see so much more,” says Josh Hogan.  “We’re all so available & we get answers in a matter of seconds. Some of us thrive in this environment, and some just can’t seem to cope.” The pointed social commentary is delivered through a subtle hypnotic melody and sweeping infectious choruses that have become the band’s signature.

“We are all Mr. Telephone,” says Katie Earl  “seeking answers from a device in the palm of our hands, but after all is said and done, how much more connected are we? How much can we gain from spending time inside our phones, and how much do we lose? There is a lot of love and knowledge and connection outside of our little boxes, and finding a balance is more crucial than ever before.”

THE MOWGLI'S RELEASE “HARD TO LOVE” SINGLE FROM AMERICAN FEELINGS EP OUT MARCH 1

THE MOWGLI’S RELEASE “HARD TO LOVE” SINGLE FROM AMERICAN FEELINGS EP DUE OUT MARCH 1

Hard To Love.jpg

Alternative Rock’s positivity torchbearers The Mowgli’s have released the effervescent first single “Hard to Love,” from their forthcoming EP American Feelings out March 1. The song - and the EP in general - hit on themes of human connection in a world that is simultaneously more interconnected and fragmented daily.

Since their early days as a 10+ member collective in Venice Beach, California The Mowgli’s have been writing songs that ooze and illicit joy, including their break out hit “San Francisco,” that brought them national attention and cemented the band as indie-rockers with purpose and a message. Two subsequent albums and an independent EP have captured an ever-growing fanbase drawn to their feel-good anthems. As the band has grown as individuals they’ve found a balance of mixing their uplifting writing with songs that give insight into the trials of a working band, as well as growing up in general. This was captured perfectly in their anthemic hit  “Kansas City” from 2018’s I Was Starting To Wonder EP.

The new record shifts gears, focusing on what it’s like to be a young person in America. It speaks to insecurities, relationships, communication both synthetic and genuine, and the lack thereof. “‘Hard To Love’ is about struggling with the feeling of being complicated when people just want things to be easy,” says Colin Dieden.  “Learning to let go of the guilt and accept the complexities about yourself that make you who you are, no matter how difficult. It is a song about love and a song about refusing to settle.”

“HARD TO LOVE” : WATCH

“Being a person is hard, and we’re all just trying to be people here,” adds Josh Hogan. “American Feelings honors that - it’s a well-rounded taste of us, The Mowgli’s.  It’s our best work yet, and we’re extremely proud of it. “

The band, slightly smaller than their inception is now comprised of singer/guitarists Colin Dieden & Josh Hogan, singer Katie Jayne Earl, drummer Andy Warren, keys player David Appelbaum and Matt Di Panni on bass. The release of their first major-label LP Waiting For The Dawn in 2013 saw immediate success with the hit single “San Francisco” and 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.  The band’s music has accumulated 250 Million streams and counting, and they’ve graced the stages of major festivals such as Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, ACL, Firefly, Osheaga, Arroyo Seco, BottleRock, Bumbershoot and more. They’ve worked with major international brands such as Spotify, Abercrombie, Levi’s, GM, Dunkin’ Donuts, VW and Verizon and continue to spread their message of positivity not only through their music but through their work with charities such as Heal The Bay, Happy Bottoms and the International Rescue Committee.

The Mowgli’s will be playing songs from American Feelings live this winter on a co-headlining tour with Jukebox the Ghost. See the full list of tour dates HERE.

THE MOWGLI'S ANNOUNCE THE NEW EP 'AMERICAN FEELINGS' + NATIONWIDE TOUR WITH JUKEBOX THE GHOST

THE MOWGLI’S ANNOUNCE THE NEW EP AMERICAN FEELINGS & NATIONWIDE TOUR WITH JUKEBOX THE GHOST

AF EP.jpg

The Mowgli’s will be releasing a new four song EP American Feelings on March 1st followed by a co-headlining nationwide tour with Jukebox the Ghost.  

From their beginning as a music collective in Venice Beach, California The Mowgli’s have been writing songs of love, unity and togetherness. Their break out hit “San Francisco” brought them national attention and cemented the band as an indie-rockers with purpose and a message. Two subsequent albums and an independent EP have captured an ever growing fanbase drawn to their feel-good anthems.

As they’ve grown, the group has balanced their positive music with songs that give a window into the trials of a working band: Juggling relationships, friendships and adulthood with the rigors of constant touring. This was most apparent in their currently highest-streaming single “Kansas City”, released last year. Now presenting their second self-controlled EP American Feelings, The Mowgli’s have, perhaps surprisingly, found greater bonds than ever before: If nothing else, the path is shared and those sharing it have an intimate knowledge of what the journey feels like.  “This EP speaks to the youth of America,” says Josh Hogan (guitar/vocals). “Being a person is hard, and we’re all just trying to be people here. American Feelings  is a well rounded taste of The Mowgli’s.  It’s our best work yet, and we’re extremely proud of it. “

This theme of connection is woven throughout the EP, starting with the anthemic pop song “Hard to Love” that pays homage to the daunting task of taking a good hard look at yourself in the mirror, owning up to who you are all while dancing your way through it, to the spacey and hypnotic  “Mr. Telephone” that examines our culture’s obsession with gadgets and synthetic connectivity. “We are all Mr. Telephone,” says Katie Earl, “seeking answers from a device in the palm of our hands, but after all is said and done, how much more connected are we? How much can we gain from spending time inside our phones, and how much do we lose? There is a lot of love and knowledge and connection outside of our little boxes, and finding a balance is more crucial than ever before.”  The EP is rounded out by the laid-back song “Norman Rockwell” that finds its lyrical roots in every youth’s disenfranchised America, and a stomping rocker “Talk About It,” that is about forgiveness and talking your way through difficult situations. “Communication is a very powerful tool,” says Hogan. “If we could learn to communicate in a healthy way, this place would be much less divided.”

The Mowgli’s - who began as a 10+ member group playing house parties and warehouse gatherings - is now comprised of singer/guitarists Colin Dieden & Josh Hogan, singer Katie Jayne Earl, drummer Andy Warren, keys player David Appelbaum and Matt Di Panni on bass.

THE MOWGLI'S RELEASE NEW SINGLE "KANSAS CITY"

THE MOWGLI’S RELEASE NEW SINGLE “KANSAS CITY” + CONCLUDE THEIR  NATIONWIDE “REAL GOOD LIFE” TOUR

17kf_KANSASCITY--1.jpeg

 

LISTEN TO “KANSAS CITY” : HERE

The Mowgli’s have released their new single “Kansas City” and will concluding their current tour at recordBar tomorrow night in Kansas City, MO. For the California band these new songs and this current tour have been all about perspective. The Mowgli’s have experienced the whirlwind that comes with having multiple hit songs; being on major labels, touring constantly, and the personal and professional challenges that come with being a working band. It’s a journey that has tested the band’s stamina, relationships and their mental and emotional health. They been have through ups and downs, including losing band members but the driving force that has kept them going is their mission to bring hope and positivity into the world. 

“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

They started off the year releasing the feel good, fist-pumping song, “Real Good Life,” to offer up some relief in these strange sociopolitical times, and give audiences an opportunity to look at the world through a glass half full.

“As if we didn’t already have enough reasons to love them, the alt-rock legends are committed to providing an antidote to all of the negativity pervading the current socio political landscape with “Real Good Life”. It’s uplifting, powerful, and if you’re in the mood for a positivity fix, it’s just what the doctor ordered.”  - Bands In Town

"Kansas City" came from a place of self-reflection. After spending the majority of the past few years on the road, the band developed a deeper connection to the idea of home. Not just the physical space of a home, but the comfort, ease and sense of belonging that home brings. Writing the song was a reminder of the one thing that really makes a place home and a city unique: the people. Whether it’s the food, the architecture, the art, the scenery - it all stems from the people. Kansas City has always been a warm and welcoming place for the band and is somewhere they love playing, somewhere that feels like home. It also happens to be the hometown of guitarist/vocalist Colin Dieden. “This song is about missing the simplicity and familiarity of a life I used to live, that I often find myself looking for now,” says Dieden.  They wrote this song for the City, and for all the people and places who give us a sense of home and make us who we are.

“The California-based band’s set list was chock full of songs spanning their entire discography, including the hit “San Francisco”, and the audience couldn’t have been more thrilled. We all left the show fueled with enough energy to get through the rest of the week.” - WHGB

This 20+ city packed out tour, that wraps up in Kansas City on Saturday March 24th at recordBar, stuck to the same ethos of simplicity and getting back to basics. The band has been playing smaller, sold out rooms on this tour to re-establish a more intimate connection with fans.

“Upbeat pop rock songs, which included plenty of  whistling, snapping, and “doo doo doos,” were interspersed with soliloquies about loving ourselves and those around us.” - Third Coast Review

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 US 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).
