Moni Jitchell are a two-piece hardcore band from Glasgow. Most of the songs on their debut EP, Clear, were written in late-2019, after David Scott (12-string guitar, bass) moved back to Glasgow following five years away and reconnected with his old bandmate and friend Grant Donaldson (drums, vocals). Both had spent the past decade in well-respected bands like Thin Privilege, Civil Elegies, Billy Ray Osiris, and Outblinker, and decided to get to work on something simple, fast, and uncompromising. The plan was to hole up in the practice space and write quickly as a two-piece, recruiting extra members when the first batch of songs were done.

Then Covid happened.

Left unable to practice with more than one other household, they decided to push forward on their own, transforming their live set-up into just a vocal mic, a 12-string guitar, and a stack of amps to blast out their backing tracks. Think HIRS Collective meets Melt Banana and you get somewhere close.

More than two years after the songs were recorded by Ross McGowan at Glasgow’s Chime Studios, Clear bears no signs that the pandemic has slowed its momentum. From the hXc-to-Three One G turns of opening track ‘Before’ to the wiry Dischordisms of ‘Tidy Rage’, Moni Jitchell tear through five tracks in as many minutes, offering no let up from Clear’s start to its end. The middle three songs barely total one minute.

Clear is set to be released by Gold Mold Records on limited edition cassette on 7 July 2022, with a launch show at Bar Bloc, Glasgow alongside emo-powerpop trio Come Outside and grindcore legends Gendo Ikari. Despite live shows having only been feasible for a few months, Moni Jitchell have already shared stages with the likes of mclusky and Thank and have further UK touring planned across the rest of 2022, kicking off with a show at Hatch, Sheffield, on 23 July 2022.

A follow-up LP will be released in early 2023, again on Gold Mold, further exploring how two people can make more noise than a band of ten.
