Bands to Watch #221: Muto Leo

By on Tuesday, 5th July 2011 at 12:00 pm

Find yourself enjoying music with a Scouse accent? Then you shouldn’t really miss out on Muto Leo, a very talented and young band from Liverpool. Joe and Luke the brothers joined by Scott, Will and Craig are the makers behind these “fidget math pop” tunes.

The first song that I heard from Muto Leo was ‘Lupalu’ (listen to it below). The guitar is very vibrant and youthful. The short break that is heard near the end of ‘Lupalu’ acts as a short relief to the intensity that the track brings. Another track of theirs that I love is ‘Creative Thinking’. My initial reaction was, “Oh no! It seems like one of those subjects in school requiring students to think ‘creatively’ and write a lot of junk… Hmmm…” Once I clicked the ‘play’ button, Muto Leo proved me completely wrong. As opposed to boring and dull school stuff, ‘Creative Thinking’ is energetic. I especially love the drum work, adding a lot of dynamics to the track, an essential part to a math rock band. You can listen to the above-mentioned tracks (and more!) by visiting the band’s SoundCloud.
