BIO

Mutant-Thoughts’ sole purpose is to create something new, something you haven’t heard of before. Materialising genuine feelings and interesting thoughts, whilst decorating reality and challenging your mind and ears to adventure out of their comfort zone.

Mutant-Thoughts is an Experimental Synth-Rock 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 an electronic, eclectic, eerie vibe as well as beautiful melodies, and a live show which is very energetic and emotional, full of groovy odd time signatures, crazy synth sounds, heavy bass lines, nice vocal harmonies, and no guitars.

Mutant-Thoughts released their first album in 2016, and their new EP “Is This Me?” was released on the 7th of September 2017, which you can buy now here:

All of a sudden, the Exchange is a skank-fest with two-stepping the name of the game and it’s a buoyant mood that greets next act Mutant Thoughts, who proceed to space the entire venue out with a mixture of experimental and avant-garde rock that lends as much as it does to Pink Floyd as it does to Faith No More and Caspian. Metal it might not be, but a slot on the Valley stage at Hellfest or even the upcoming Desertfest in London would suit them perfectly, and as such they are a true part of our world. A brilliant rhythm section – bassist Joshua Lennox-Hilton especially – is married perfectly with the atmospheric synths and keys of frontman Han Luis Cera, and it makes for a compelling and intriguing set indeed.

Like the mesh of the guitar and synth lines. Vocals have a touch of Thom Yorke but also make me think of Bowie spaced out under the influence of heavy sedation.

Mutant-Thoughts

The underlying tones register as a somber note which creates an oppressive atmosphere at the core of the material, which is equally matched by the funereal procession speed of the music overlayed with an equally subdued vocal. Slightly experimental in nature, without heading away from recognizable sounds of directions of travel Mutant-Thoughts creates a powerful imagery and emotional drive within the listener.

The music weaves a path into the mind of the audience taking them on a journey of discovery, which despite its inherent sadness somehow feels comforting, allowing the head to wallow in thoughts of personal misfortune without becoming introspectively indulgent.

Whilst I have spent all of the review so far talking about the repressed mood of the music that isn’t to say you leave feeling in despair as there is a catharsis in the music itself, which is riven with an array of textures and contexts that become beacons of light. The overwhelming power and expressive nature of the material softens the anxieties and the very name Mutant-Thoughts is a play on the content.
