LISTEN: Mumble Tide - 'Sucker'

Another day, another of my favourite releases from last week via the ever-wonderful Stay Loose PR. I'm loving Sucker from Mumble Tide, AKA duo-come-couple Gina Leonard and Ryan Rogers, who met via Gumtree (true story) when Gina put out an advert searching for a bassist. The track, released on Nothing Fancy Records, follows their debut EP Love Thing, which garnered the duo support from the likes of Lauren Laverne, Steve Lamacq and various blogs (including this one...!) 

Creating music from their bedroom in Bristol, the pair make music in an environment free of the creative judgement that both had experienced in the past. They oversee every aspect of the project - producing, making their own videos and their own artwork. Carefree, slightly chaotic and all sorts of brilliant, Sucker is required listening. Get it into your ear drums with haste. 

On the track, Gina shares: "This one is just a super fun track we threw together. It's about feeling confident and free and moving on (or at least trying to). It's about throwing the baggage off your shoulders and strutting away... but also accepting that it's not that easy."
