For our first-ever installment of “Who The Heck Is…?”, a new visual Q&A series where we introduce you to our favorite up-and-coming acts, we talked to The Mysterines, a four-piece band from Liverpool.
The Mysterines started off in 2017 and is currently made up of vocalist/guitarist Lia Metcalfe, bassist George Favager, guitarist Callum Thompson, and drummer Paul Crilly. Their debut record Reeling came out this past march, a fuzzed-up rock record that’s earned comparisons to 90s-rock staples like Hole, Queens of the Stone Age, and Nirvana; rightly so, it was produced by Catherine Marks (Wolf Alice, The Big Moon, PJ Harvey). Essential tracks include lead single “Hung Up” and the ripping “Life’s a Bitch (But I Like It So Much)”.
The Mysterines will play Chicago’s Cobra Lounge tonight with The Tomblands (and there’s still some tickets available). But before the gig, get to know them below as the band shares their bucket-list collaborator, tour snack musts, and their desert island record.
