Not your average band – the members of Mount Forel hail from across the globe; Denver Colorado, The Wirral, Osaka, Northern Ireland, Dunedin New Zealand, Tokyo and Manchester to be precise. If you’re counting more places than band members you aren’t going mad, each member of Mount Forel counts at least two places as home.



Elaborate on the song.

‘Witney’ references the quiet and detached Oxfordshire town of the same name, where failed former UK Prime Minister David Cameron comes from, and the troubles of the world seem a galaxy away.



Recorded in the village of Witney itself at Shaken Oak Studios, the track was mixed by Jake Murray at London’s Strongroom Studios.



Drummer Andrew says of the release, “We were recording our album in Witney. It’s the most conservative place I’ve ever seen, where David Cameron and his friends live in a perfect millionaire’s bubble. We listed a bunch of things going sour right now like inequality, climate change, false is the new norm and air quality, then wrote a song about a town where none of these ills seem to exist; our own little Witney so to speak.”




With its lilting groove, 90s down beat grunge feel and intricately woven guitar arrangement, ‘Witney’ is a classic for our time.



The vocal arrangement builds mystery around the track from the start, before all coming together in the chorus to deliver the line “There’s no place like home” reflecting on the isolated bubble of reassurance that purveys over the chocolate box Oxfordshire village.



Update us on the latest news pertaining to your music career.

In 2019 Mount Forel have played a unique gig in a converted cinema in Walthamstow, East London, where the entire audience were blindfolded – giving fans a chance to completely immerse themselves in the music; and a gig at Hackney Wick’s Grow where the audience followed instructions to paint while listening to the band.



2020 will see the release of their album and more exciting interactive gigs.





Send a message to your fans and supporters.

The plan is to play more exciting shows that you will never forget. And release the album, of course! Bring in 2020!



Discuss your next project.

Our next single, Silicon Valley, will be out in February 2020 alongside the full album, Small Worlds.






Everybody’s has a home

Even the chief on our street sings from the same song

We all leave our doors open

The years go by and the butterflies still return



Glacial water tastes the best

All their gods are laid to rest



There’s no place like home

No one lives alone

Logic is our throne

There’s no place like home



We trust our leaders to tell the truth

They were voted in by and they listen to the youth

Mountain air is the best

Baby-boomers laid to rest



There’s no place like home

No one lives alone

Logic is our throne

There’s no place like home
