Akira’s Song of the Day comes from Newcastle/Milan hype band MAUSI. Everyone on my facebook feed has been going nuts about this song today and I’ll confess it’s really starting to grow on me. When I first listened to the soundcloud link whilst I thought the song was good I also thought it was a bit annoying, and a bit silly but then I watched this music video… After watching this music video I suddenly wanted to get on a plane to Portugal, down some jaeger bombs and join this band on a night out. The band come across as very likeable and fun and for me they’re like a cool Alphabeat (who I secretly loved at Uni) – it’s because the music is ridiculously catchy, uplifting and makes you want to jump around being silly and annoying. I expect MAUSI to do well especially if they keep releasing catchy, poppy, upbeat and generally banging tracks like MOVE. They’re playing XOYO on Friday, I’d go if I wasn’t in my hometown of Guernsey. Blast.
MAUSI – MOVE
You know what I’m sayin?
