Introducing... Mourn

Age really is nothing but a number.

Story by Chad Kamenshine March 31st, 2015

“I was sitting at home, bored and alone in Barcelona, never thinking that this is what it would be.“ - Carla Pérez Vas

Don‘t let Mourn fool you with their adorable adolescence.

Despite the name, they‘re not another black cladded band trying to exude cool in Saint Laurent. Instead, the only black you’ll find them sporting are the straight edge X‘s stamped on their hands. Ranging in age from 15-18 years young, they‘re a colorful crew of Catalans with authentic swagger, channeling the ghosts of musics past with sonic nods to PJ Harvey and the Pixies to prove their chops.

During their first-ever trip to the States, they explored Greenpoint with bright eyes and a curiosity as big as their infectious smiles. Their taste of Brooklyn came in the form of pizza at Fornino, a trip to the Captured Tracks record shop and a packed show with a cheering crowd at Baby’s All Right.

A city full of strangers took Mourn in with open arms, completing an experience that Carla and the rest of her bandmates
could have never dreamt of while back home.
