The Mowgli's Kids In Love on LP
Love is all you need. It’s been said many times and many ways of course, but it’s truer now than ever. When seven-piece The Mowgli’s first landed on the scene, their message of positivity and love resonated with audiences everywhere. The group’s 2013 major label debut, Waiting for the Dawn debuted at #4 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart and yielded the hit “San Francisco.” Along the way, their interpretation of love became even clearer, and it defines their sophomore outing, Kids In Love.
“Our first album essentially said, ‘What’s up everyone? We’re The Mowgli’s, and we believe love can change the world,” explains Katie Jayne Earl. “Over the past couple of years, we really came to terms with who we are as a band. With Kids In Love we’re exploring the intricacies of love. It’s such a broad concept. This time around, we get into intimate love, personal love, as well as universal love. We’ve found art is the best vehicle to ponder what this really means.”
In order to properly convey that sentiment, the group teamed up with producer Tony Hoffer (The Kooks, Silversun Pickups, Fitz & The Tantrums) in his Los Angeles studio during the summer of 2014. With Hoffer at the helm, they fine-tuned their sound into an elegant amalgam of influences. Additionally, they recorded with prior collaborators Captain Cuts – a production team that includes Ryan Rabin of Grouplove, and worked with Matt Radosevich on two additional tracks.
The first released track “Through The Dark” builds from a shimmering acoustic guitar into an unshakable harmony between Josh and Colin. It shines its own kind of musical light. Then, there’s the first single “I’m Good.” It begins with a sun-soaked clean guitar and resounding percussion before snapping into a delightful refrain that’s undeniably unforgettable. Elsewhere on the album, “Whatever Forever” is augmented by driving handclaps and a group chorus that proves infectious. Ultimately, The Mowgli’s open up their hearts once more, and the results are nothing short of inspiring.
