Mount Fabric are nothing to do with fabric, or how to mount it - they are falsetto, reverb, toms, FX, dynamics, abusers of all things classic, with a taste for epic soundscapes and haunting melodies.
“Mount Fabric excel in drawing together gorgeous falsetto melodies, razor edge guitars and tumbling drums into pieces that sound like the end of the world and the most gorgeous thing you’ve heard – all in one short piece” – Drowned In Sound
Honing their craft with an insatiable desire to play live, they snapped up gigs with the likes of Alt+J, Dum Dum Girls and The Jezebels, before jettisoning off to the other side of the world to embark on a mini tour of California - kicking off at the legendary Roxy On Sunset in L.A. and crashing to a close at the House Of Blues in San Diego.
Returning to the UK, the band released their first single “Curves and Corners” to critical acclaim and airplay from BBC 6 Music, XFM, Amazing Radio and more. Shortly after, they headlined the new music stage at BT London Live at Hyde Park on the last night of the Olympics.
After an exhausting year of gigging, Mount Fabric retreated to their Manchester studio for the Winter to write, arrange and record a series of singles for release throughout 2013. This new collection of work explores the themes of science, religion and the meaning of life.
Fast forward to halfway through 2013 and the band have released two singles on Crystalline Recordings, "Heuristic Fits" and "Salamander", supported The Breeders, Team Ghost and Bored Spies and closed the Sound Control stage at Dot To Dot Festival. Currently putting the finishing touches to more tracks, plotting their first EP of the year as well as continually writing new material, expect plenty more form Mount Fabric before the year is done.
"Stratospherically unusual vocals and songs that pan out before you; widescreen, ambitious, dallying with sounds not heard for a long time. Unexpected and exciting.” - A New Band A Day
“Breathtakingly good, figuratively speaking think Radiohead with massive testicles.” - The VPME
“Dynamics are the key to their brilliance. Complex arrangements mean they're the sort of band you can't really get by half listening, but make the effort and you'll be richly rewarded.” - Louder Than War
“Bleak lyrical content ... evoking some gruesome imagery which is still somehow an absolute joy to listen to.” - Music From Rainy Skies
“Strong cult vocals, catchy melodies and beautifully executed dynamics.” - Music-News
“Clever, canny songwriting” - Beard Rock
“They certainly don't disappoint live.” - High Voltage
“Dynamic leftfield indie which soars to great heights through the emotive falsetto of frontman Alex Marczak.” - The Ark
“The vocals are astonishing, as Alex hits every note perfectly in a falsetto voice.” - Mudkiss
“A fantastic sense of dynamics, and in the shape of Alex Marczak one quite remarkable singer. Sometimes he's the young hungry post-punk dreamer, sometimes a dark angel with a disarming and quite astonishing falsetto.” - Manchester Music
