The Mutes (from mars) share 'Under the Sea' from forthcoming live EP

29 July 2020 - 0 Comments

The Mutes (from mars) share Under the Sea the first single from their forthcoming live mini-EP, out on BigPop on 28 August.

The fantastical rock song tells the story of a mermaid who dreams of being with someone on land, and a land dweller who is aware of the mermaid, but is not convinced that living in her world is a good idea.

Under the Sea is a story of unrequited love,” says Gabriel Friedlander. “We want people to feel energised and excited by the thought of an unlikely love story.”

The live EP is the third EP to be released by the band, with three songs each accompanied by a live video recorded at Auckland’s Backbeat bar in February this year. Now, The Mutes (from mars) are ready to share their new music with the world, with a free all-ages show to celebrate the release at Grey Lynn RSC on Wednesday 26 August.

Started eight years ago by disability service provider A Supported Life, The Mutes (from mars) are New Zealand’s most unique rock band, made up of talented musicians with a range of social and learning disabilities, and their mentor and band leader Sam Benge, who also produces the band’s recordings.

“Being in the Mutes is like having another family and gives us a sense of belonging to something greater,” says Lisa Hannam. “The band members support each other and are always there for one another.”

“It's such a great way to express our ideas and emotions and to just rock out and have fun!,” adds Gabriel. “When we get together as a band and turn the volume up all the problems of daily life melt away and we are just there having fun.”

Under the Sea
