FRESH: ‘Someone To Call My Own’ – Mos Isley

Mos Isley have “Someone To Call My Own”

Swedish indie rock/pop band Mos Isley have just released their new single ”Someone To Call My Own”. By the band’s own description “The song gives a feeling of old Keane, though with a more modern sound”. Falsett enriched song melodies, spherical guitar tones and powerful synths. That soundscape should make you think of Mos Isley, the ore-based alt-pop duo who released their debut single, “Mirrors”, in late 2015. The song topped the list in radio program P3 (biggest radio station in Sweden) Osignat with Sanna Bråding in the lead.

The successful debut single was followed by the not least acclaimed sequel, “Where Do We Go?”, which in mid-2017 was placed on some of Spotify’s most renowned playlists Viral Hits, Viral 50 in the US and Discover Weekly. The song on it, “Colorful Spectrum”, was released as a tribute to the singer’s mother, who in late 2016 passed away in cancer. After some time off, Mos Isley is finally back with their new single “Someone To Call My Own”. Over the years, Mos Isley has been associated with both powerful Public Service Broadcasting and Jung to name a few.

“Where Do We Go?” has today well over 300,000 streams and reached its peak with 15,000 hours of airtime across 56 countries with over 87,000 listeners in total. Of “Colorful Spectrum”, the band say: “The song was born during a very dark period of my life after someone very close to me had passed away. Some days felt like an ocean of darkness drowning me. I had to tell myself constantly to never let it get to me, but no matter how much I fought back I still ended up in agony. Colorful Spectrum took me on a ride between emotions of sorrow and hope. It has had a very therapeutical impact on me”.

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
