Sup, musical miscreants!? Y’all down with The Mooks? You know, the Toronto, Canada-based trio of musicians who dish out some good old rock & roll? Well, whether you’re hip on this group or not, you’re about to dig ‘em (more). The guys are gearing up to release their new EP I Hope That You Feel The Same and, today, are debuting the new single “So Kind”. The track sees the band mesh their jangly power pop sound with some spirited melodies and a wide range of influences resulting in an avoidably catchy jam.

The new song and upcoming release follow June 2018’s Singles EP (all of which can be found on Bandcamp, SoundCloud, Spotify, and other similar suspects) and can be heard if you check them live on March 2 at Toronto’s legendary Horseshoe Tavern. I Hope That You Feel The Same is due later this year and was recorded at Dreamhouse Studios with Calvin Hartwick.

Speaking of “So Kind”, the band collectively shared this thought: “We want people to take away with a little extra pep in their step. A nostalgic reminder of better days past. The particular mood is happy and celebratory, with a hint of melancholy. The story of the song is being enamoured by someone new, and them leaving too soon. A one-sided love affair.”

This is it! Your chance to do the right thing and hit pay… be “So Kind”!

We love you Mooks! So, does this mean we’re, like, “Going Steady” now?
