MUMM-RA These Things Move In Threes Columbia (2007)


Much vaunted by NME - as one of 10 bands guaranteed to make it in 2007, Bexhill On Sea's Mumm-Ra look set to do just that with their Youth produced debut album These Things Move In Threes.

What are they like? Well, not to be confused with the villain in the 1980's cartoon Thundercats - who just happens to bear the same moniker - Mumm-Ra deliver post - indie guitar tunes of the highest order with some great hooks and lovely harmonies.

It's an album that improves with every listen and really is a first class debut. But the band are difficult to pigeon hole - there's big guitar moments, balanced by moments of subtlety and madness and a journey from The Buggles to Travis to The Killers.

But one thing's for sure, the quality control is set firmly on 'maximum'. And if you want to see if Mumm-Ra are you cup of tea, check out their Myspace page where you can hear 3 of the album's 11 tracks.

Other high spots on their journey thus far are playing the NME Awards Tour alongside The Automatic, The View and The Horrors and a support slot on The Killers European Tour. For once, the hype may be justified.
