Mozes and the Firstborn have released a new song.

Blow Up is the latest track to be shared from the Dutch garage-rock band’s upcoming third album, ’Dadcore’, which is out on January 25 via California’s Burger Records. It follows previously shared tracks Hello and If I. Speaking on Tidal about the new song and the writing process, vocalist and guitarist Melle Dielesen said:

"I wrote Blow Up after seeing a friend in a bad place mentally. I judged him at first. But then I realized I wasn’t too far from being in that place myself. It’s about acknowledging the fact that people suffer. I do. You do. We all do. When I listen to it now it reminds me that we’re all in this together. And we should try to help each other out.

Blow Up was born out of a jam in the rehearsal space. Corto [Blommaert] started playing this bass riff and we all joined in. Most of it was right there in that first moment. It was really quite special, a new step for us as songwriters. We bounced a demo back and forth until we felt confident to go into the studio. Raven [Aartsen-drummer] really picked the best ingredients the four of us had to offer and baked a sweet little cake out of them. Chris Coady mixed the track and really put the cherry on top. And of course some of that sweet whipped cream."

Following the album’s release, the quartet will bring their mix of sleazy grunge and sunshine pop to the UK for an exclusive London gig at the Shacklewell Arms on March 12 as part of a wider European trek. Before that, they tour the US next month with Madrid’s the Parrots.

Mozes And The Firstborn Upcoming Tour Dates are as follows

Tue March 12 2019 - LONDON Shacklewell Arms
