Noise rock: Mavourneen share ‘Bliss’


The ever fruitful Danish punk/noise scene has a new offspring. They’re a duo. They’re called Mavourneen. I’m guessing they’re named after the 1891 musical of the same name. They’ve just recorded their debut album with Steve Shelley of Sonic Youth fame in Sonic Youth’s New York studio. That’s about all we know at this point. Their first release is titled ‘Bliss’ and it is a raw and raucous effort that begins with SY worthy avant-garde noise before segueing into a song of surprising melody. Having said that, the melody is buried under a wall of noise. Check it out below.
