ENTRODUCING #5 - Mystified
The thing about Mystified is that at the root of their sound is are fairly simplistic pop songs with a Nuggets aesthetic. But essentially, this trio are so formidable and ferocious in a live environment (and on closer inspection the studio too) that, with the help of hypnotic FX-drenched guitars, frontwoman Jess Allanic's raucous voice and the band's immense chemistry, Mystified are absolutely something else live.
Their live shows are frequent, and their music something you absolutely need in your life, Mystified are the perfect band of their genre. Whether it's the doomy She's Scared or the trippy Acid Gasp, Mystified's back catalogue reflects their incredible abilities as a band, and I think a lot of people are gonna get very obsessed with them very soon...
FFO: The Horrors (goth era), Hookworms, The Seeds, Hole
