Within the last few years Mumrunner has established as a very exciting prospect to watch, especially within shoegaze/ dream pop circles. With much global blog, radio and media presence aligned with EP releases in Europe and Japan and their many European tours, the stage has been set for their debut album “Valeriana“, released in March 2020. The album was co-released by Through Love Records (Europe) and Shelflife Records (North America).

The Tampere, Finland based band, known for their memorable melodies, are showing even stronger and fuller melody lines on their new, groovier songs.

Distortion pedals and chord strumming have been put aside, only using those infrequently as an effect. Vocals are still very ethereal and atmospheric, with more simultaneous male/female singing.
