Mope City - Wave of Youth

Mope City - Wave of Youth
Sydney three piece, Mope City, comprises songwriter and guitarist Matt Neville, bass player and vocalist Amaya Lang and drummer Sam Wilkinson. From the beginning the band has kept busy, putting out two independent cassette EPs in 2012-2013 (‘Boo Fukin Hoo’ & ‘Disneybland’), and the Small Eye 7” through Tenth Court in 2014. These releases combine downbeat-indie- garage with alt-country with shoegaze and more. Not as impossible as it sounds! The common thread is Neville’s refreshingly droll take on misery and malaise, with song titles like ‘Suicide of Town’, ‘Punchface’ and 'Blunt Razor’. In and vocal melodies. Likewise, Neville’s often affectless vocal is offset by the sweetly yearning folkiness of Lang’s. It is a formula that immediately strikes the listener and that never fails to impress in a live setting.

The band’s debut long player,‘Petri Dish’, was recorded over several months at Audile Design and in the home studios of Neville and Wilkinson, mixed by Neville and mastered by Lawrence English.

‘Petri Dish’ is available now through Tenth Court Records.

About this track...

"Melancholic as a finding yourself 10 cents short of a coffee on a hungover Monday, ‘Wave of Youth’ packs salad day nostalgia with plodding bass, call and response guitars, and dishevelled drums" -Ryan Saar (
