Los Angeles-based Mere Mortals' new single "Heart Burn Heart" directed by Rob Sonner.
MERE MORTALS is a Los Angeles-based, 4-piece that draws from psychedelic, British and Krautrock influences. The band is compromised of German-born, London-dwelling vocalist/guitarist Axel Steuerwald, Japanese bassist Mimi Star, drummer/spiritual-advisor Todd Demma and Jason O. on guitar/vocals. MERE MORTALS' sound lies somewhere between the pscyh/pop sounds of Oasis, The Jesus And Mary Chain and Primal Scream mixed with elements of CAN and Neu. The band has received raves from the likes of former Sex Pistol Steve Jones (on Indie103.1), The LA Times, The Onion, Las Vegas City Life and the UK's NME who stated, "...the LA-based band is known for adeptly combining elements of psychedelic and Brit-rock earning them 'best unsigned band' accolades left and right."
