Mosman Alder

There are many voices, places and influences swirling in Mosman Alder. The Brisbane six-piece may have unified their debut album under the sweeping title taken from the life’s-work of an ingenious ’80s scientist and astronomer-turned-author, but for the most part, inspiration for the album was found slightly closer to home. Weaving the bandmates’ experiences of travelling overseas, the bitter sweetness of returning home, online pen-pals, sharing dog-eared books from Japanese expressionists, navigating through shyness and Arts schools—and the inevitable searching that comes with figuring out life through your early twenties—is underpinned by the band’s love of music, art, storytelling and ultimately, their own friendship.

Much of their debut album, Humdrum Star, may have been written on German guitars and composed on separate trips across the globe—as far flung as South East Asia and Scotland—but was performed and written, simply, by a band who look forward to practicing together. While some bands would be out of their depth with a large ensemble, particularly the commanding use of piano and violin, Mosman Alder envelope the unusual instruments seamlessly and create a densely lush sound through the chaos of six members that shines just as brightly on headphones as watching the band perform live.
