Up & Coming LGBT Music: Mount Sharp

Brooklyn-Based Fuzzcore Trio
Mount Sharp

Premiere Music Video "Icarus" on Impose Magazine

“A mixture of distant and echoed vocals drift in and out of ghostly, sometimes eerie pop guitar, displaying a plethora of influences, and making for an uncomfortably enjoyable (or enjoyably uncomfortable) listening experience.”
-The Deli Magazine
Check out Brooklyn-based fuzzcore rockers, Mount Sharp and their brand new music video for "Icarus" that premiered yesterday on Impose Magazine. Check it out HERE! Impose says, "The “morning streaked glow” of dawn from Mount Sharp’s trio of Sarah Wood, Ryan Zumsen, and Bryan Bruchman is accompanied by a romantic short film that shines the light of day on the feelings and thoughts that are often reserved for restless nights."

More Info:
NYC-based “fuzzcore” trio will release first single, "Icarus," off of their forthcoming EP Weird Fears, set to release later this summer. “Icarus,” premiered on CMJ, who described the track as, “sublimely summery.” Check out the feature HERE. The collection of tracks on the upcoming EP features soft crooning and aggressive shouts. With up-tempo drum beats, distortion-drenched guitars and melodic bass lines, Mount Sharp’s distinct sound comes into fruition.
Having met in Portland, Maine, Sarah Wood (Vocals/Guitar) and Bryan Bruchman (Guitar) ended up as roommates in the Gowanus neighborhood of Brooklyn, NY, working on songs at home and building the foundation for what would become Mount Sharp. Joined by their friend Ryan Zumsen on bass, they got to work crafting songs about “science and bad decisions” and started playing shows in late 2012. The band is an amalgamation of inspirations, past and present. With inflections of Fleetwood Mac and Joanna Newsom, the band also cites indie powerhouses Yo La Tengo and Dinosaur JR. as influences. The band has played major New York music festivals including CMJ and Northside, and just completed a 4-week residency at Pianos in NYC.

Now in their third year of playing together, the threesome have honed their sound and put out an EP that is simultaneously accessible and original, jangly and ornate, and subtly in your face. “It’s the kind of summer music I need,” says Knox Rd. Lookout for more from Mount Sharp!
