The Math Rock Blog reviews “Components”

mOck has given us a concise EP rife with patience, precision and delicate organization, sewing a rich musical fabric that showcases interweaving yet unified instrumentation and exemplary songwriting. [...] mOck achieves the trying task of sounding familiar without sounding trite, as Components is much more than a recitation of what has come before.” – The Math Rock Blog

American Aftermath reviews “Components”

“The music on Components is subdued, soft, delicate, and full of complexity at the same time. The songs burst with bright melodies that are conjured through riffing that cycles and changes without hesitation. The songs, especially evident in the opening track “Poitou”, constantly shift rhythm and shape throughout. It’s usually unlikely that you will hear the same section more than twice. Components often toys with jazz-like formulas and adds a healthy dose of math rock to the mix, as the track “Singh” showcases. The EP is brimming with quiet complexity.” – American Aftermath

mOck: Berlin puzzle-rockers announce 10″ EP + streaming track

We’re super pumped to introduce you to Berlin’s DIY-sweethearts mOck, and we’re excited to bring you North American distribution of their brand new 10″ EP Components!

mOck challenges us in all the best ways: the trio oscillates between scintillating outbursts and minimalistic reservation. Persisting melodies, rhythmic ruptures and free floating structures combine to create a sound that is unique and yet catchy, playful and yet precise. For fans of Karate, Tortoise, or Joan of Arc.

Components drops February 21st via German indie label Coraille and will see US release (10″ vinyl + digital) February 25th courtesy of yours truly. In Japan, Friend Of Mine Records will launch the EP as part of an exclusive CD-release on March 19th. US pre-orders will be announced this weekend. In the meantime listen to the EP’s instrumental track “Singh”, streaming below.
