It Really Shouldn't Be This Hard
Born and raised in the jungles of New York, The Mystic Underground forge their own path by blending irresistible pop sensibility with danceable rhythms and introspective lyrics with tongue planted firmly in cheek. In the words of singer, Vladimir Valette, â€œ...we're looking to grab a foothold in the minds and hearts of listeners everywhere. We want to serve as a reminder that the term â€œpop musicâ€ isn't an obscenity. We write songs with something to say and are not afraid to push the envelope whilst having you sing along in the processâ€. Blending the sounds of new wave, post-punk, Britpop, and alternative dance and wrapping it all in an electronic bow, this is a band destined to find themselves at the forefront of the new electronic pop movement in the US and abroad. The proof of this can be found beginning with the debut LP,â€œThe Nameless and The Facelessâ€ which garnered significant radio play on college radio thanks to the strength of tracks like â€œMary's Deadâ€ and â€œTowniesâ€. The evolution continues with the EP, â€œUnder The Clearest Moonâ€ which found the band gaining a larger audience and points to a very promising future for the band indeed. The band is now set to present their latest and most promising work to date, their new album, â€œIt Really Shouldn't Be This Hardâ€ due out October 21 on Stereosonic Recordings. Fifteen songs, fifteen personalities, fifteen voices, all woven seamlessly into a cohesive work. Featured tracks include certain singles, â€œMadeleineâ€, â€œWhere Have The Club Kids Goneâ€ and, â€œThe Trouble With Girlsâ€.
