MAUSI are a 4 piece from Newcastle in the UK. They are fronted by Milanese siblings Thomas and Daisy Finetto whilst Ben Brown and Benji Huntrods make up the quartet who all met at University in Newcastle. They create fun danceable pop similar stylistically to Passion Pit and Phoenix but danicer and crazier in a Black Kids vein.
‘My Friend Has A Swimming Pool’ is undoubtedly a fun pop track but it does well to blend in elements of dance and in places house. The lyrics are an ode to summer, immediately conjuring nostalgia about late nights spent “Getting tipsy in the swimming pool” and other fun, tongue-in-cheek summer clichés.
MAUSI have been slowly gathering momentum in the last couple of years, ‘Sol’ was selected for the BBC Radio 1 playlist, whilst they have played under the “BBC Introducing…” banner, notably at the Reading and Leeds festival in 2013. More recently they have had critical acclaim for their track ‘Body Language’ and have been championed by Phil Taggart and Alice Levine’s late night new music show where ‘My Friend Has a Swimming Pool’ was given its official first play.
‘My Friend Has a Swimming Pool’ is out on 6th July whilst fans of this track would be wise to check out the Magician remix of the track as well as further MAUSI Tracks such as ‘Body Language’ and ‘Sol’. MAUSI can be found at a variety of festivals this summer.
