Alt rock wunderkinds The Mysterines have returned with their new single ‘Begin Again’, an enthralling precursor to their monumental support slots with the Arctic Monkeys on their stadium tour this summer. Stream the new single here and watch the video here.

Receiving its first play from Clara Amfo on BBC Radio 1 yesterday, ‘Begin Again’ is the first single to be taken from The Mysterines’ forthcoming LP, and sees the four piece build on their signature introspective lyricism, stripping instrumentation back for an incredibly powerful set up and delivery. It’s the sound of a band truly refining and maturing their craft, and speaking further about the single Lia Metcalfe says: “Written during a full moon in a barn in the West Country, ‘Begin Again’ felt like finding a key to the spirit realm the evening it arrived.  It felt like I was embarking on a surreal journey of self dissolution;  think of the first verse as a set of instructions, and see how far reality stretches.”

Riding high on the success of their critically acclaimed, UK Top 10 debut album ‘Reeling’ released March 2022, The Mysterines have been achieving remarkable success since the release, including two tours of the UK, two of North America and one in the EU, and now a tour with their personal heroes Arctic Monkeys across UK stadiums this summer. Tickets here.

‘Reeling’ saw stellar support across the board on release, from a TV appearance on Jools Holland (which Lia herself predicted as a teenager) to glowing reviews from leading indie tastemakers and national broadsheets. The Line of Best Fit’s 8/10 review said The Mysterines “draw you in with their seething words…mountainous rock tones…and humoured musings on life’s painful inevitabilities over thirteen glorious tracks”, with DIY commenting “their knack for melody is one of their greatest strengths, particularly when combined with frontwoman Lia Metcalfe’s husky tones”. NME declared ‘Reeling’ an “electrifying debut album” in their 4* review, comparing the powerful guitar ballad ‘On The Run’ to “a Celebrity Skin era Hole classic”, meanwhile The Telegraph commented “The Mysterines’ default setting is fast and furious garage punk-rock to which Metcalfe adds a goth grandeur with doomy lyrics and a quality of brazen glee at the rebellious posturing of songs with statement titles.”
