The Mojo Fins - Pinata Face

The Mojo Fins
Pinata Face

Brighton is currently spewing forth great bands like some kind of musical white hole and The Mojo Fins are one very good reason to encourage this uncontrolled birthing of talent.

‘Pinata Face’ starts off with an acoustic meandering that would impress Nizlopi, with a vocal akin to Mike Rosenberg. The surprising twist comes courtesy of the building instruments, which elevate the music from acoustic to semi-orchestral with the crest of the wave hitting the kind of highs you’d expect from something religious. Then the post-orchestral chill of the last couple of lines supplies a sudden reflection on an excellent three minutes.

Following on from the two versions of ‘Pinata Face’, ‘Between Stations’ shows off the Captain-esque aspect of The Mojo Fins with a bit of pop sensibility in the twinkling delayed guitars, which bounce off each other with glittering clarity. The chorus is spiced up with an interesting rhythm and the dual vocal talents of Chandler and Brett allow for some strong harmonies.

On this effort, The Mojo Fins prove themselves to be an exceptional band.
