On Mystery Tapes‘ SoundCloud page, there are only a year-old track ‘The Keeper‘ and their latest single off their debut EP entitled Unheard Songs. But if you keep up with their goings-on, the band has kept busy by performing around town. Right off the bat, ‘On A Mission’ makes an impression with a thunderous opening which gradually smolders and resonates in the background while crystalline guitars, both acoustic and electric, join in with Zack Yusof’s singing about being a guy down on his luck. There’s an upheaval towards the end, thinking the song has finished, Zack’s voice comes rearing again but in spoken form, “I think I fucked up that last bit, didn’t I?”, echoing the message of the song.

Mystery Tapes’ Unheard Songs EP is available in extremely limited edition cassettes via Teenage Head Records. The EP can also be found on Spotify, Deezer and KKBox.
