Anyone that knows me well will also know my love for both folk and punk music, so when these genres are combined and done well, (as this combination can be disastrous – not pointing any fingers) you can be pretty certain I’ll love it.
Therefore when I first saw Mt. Doubt (aka Leo Bargery) play live a couple of months back I was instantly hooked, but upon listening to his recordings the next day I felt like the passion present in his live show was missing.
Nevertheless, I was excited to hear the next single and to my pleasure found that ‘SOAK’ manages to capture that passion from Bargery’s live show – gripping my attention from the start.
Bargery’s gruff vocals are captivating and the addition of Annie Booth’s vocals beside his creates some wonderful harmonies.
While the instrumentals compliment both the vocals and lyrics creating a soothing sound that continues to build throughout into a triumph finale.
It’s been quite a while since I’ve stumbled upon a band that I’m really excited about, but I can certainly picture myself singing Mt. Doubt’s praise over the months to come.
