Since forming in 2011, Mobina Galore, the Winnipeg punk duo of Jenna Priestner, and drummer Marcia Hanson have cut their teeth on an approach to music that operates without the fluff...
Now three albums into their decade-long career their upcoming single, "Whiskey Water", being released April 2022 will show a fresh side of the band while continuing the band's signature of crafting unapologetically heavy, wildly dynamic songs that explore life's peaks and valleys with discerning emotional clarity.
Their debut album Cities Away (2014) packed the complexities of life transitions into a smart, scrappy container of straightforward power punk. Their stripped-back sophomore effort Feeling Disconnected (2017) dealt with feelings of isolation and was recorded with just drums and guitar to channel the raw intensity of their live shows and their latest Don’t Worry (2019) pays homage to a range of generation genres such as 90s west coast skate punk and first-wave mid-west emo.
Jenna and Marcia go straight for the jugular through lyrics that shuffle through a wide range of emotions-confusion and indignation; exasperation and finally, forgiveness— that speak to the blunt reality of universal experiences.
As part of the most recent generation of artists invested in retrofitting the genre with new narratives, Mobina Galore has weaponized their outsider attitude into explosive punk that demands attention on the band’s own terms. By building a catalogue of expertly executed songs, they're challenging the industry's entrenched shortcomings by flipping the stereotype of "overly emotional women" on its head, and instead, turning it into their battle-axe.
