In Mourn’s video for the new song, “Call You Back,” the group’s three members, individually, do things we’ve become used to seeing people do in quarantine: exercise, hang laundry, lie around. Mourn taking a different approach to these times. They also take a shower with clothes on and wear tinsel as a hat.
While the making of the video was determined by Spain’s strict coronavirus lock down and its monotony, it doesn’t seem so unusual for a band that was built on high school ennui.
The Barcelona indie rockers were still in their teens when they captured attention with their self-titled 2015 debut album; the band’s next two releases, notably 2019’s Sorpresa Familia, confirmed it was more than a novelty. Mourn has toured the U.S. and Canada four times, something the band of course won’t be doing for the foreseeable future. Concerts programmed in Spain and France from March heading into the summer have been canceled or postponed.
