Mutant-Thoughts + Stillwave + The Parlour Scene
Mutant-Thoughts is an Experimental Alternative band with Electronic and Rock influences, formed by Han Luis Cera (Vocals and Synths), Joshua Lennox-Hilton (Bass and Backing Vocals) and Tom Pearmain (Drums), with and electronic, eclectic, eerie vibe as well as beautiful melodies.
On a constant search for new sounds, rhythms, harmonies and textures, Mutant-Thoughts have worked on trying to construct their vision on what the world sounds like.
Mutant-Thoughts' live show is very energetic and emotional, full of groovy odd time signatures, crazy synth sounds, heavy bass lines, nice vocal harmonies, and no guitars.
Using Synths, Drum Machines and effects, this band is able to transform our surroundings into a completely new reality which is perceived with detail in the music.
