Always In The Mood

The Mood was first formed in late 2005 in Florida by singer/songwriter Marco Argiro. After relocating to NYC in 2006, Marco joined forces with his cousin Corinne Callen and began working on material with longtime friend, Kenton Langstroth. The band released their Two Night Stand EP on vinyl in July 2006.

Two years later, they're on their second CD and it's a doozy. Called, Synaethesia, it's the sort of record that has Summer written all over it. It's a pogotastic, power pop treat that's slightly twee and ridiculously addictive, it's the sort of thing that could make even the angriest hardcore kid crack a smile.

It's hard to believe that Synaethesia is from a New York band because The Mood sound so UN-New York. I mean when you think of shiny sunny jangly pop you don't think of NYC. It must be a shock to unsuspecting New Yorkers that this band is just so damn upbeat.

Check them out for yourself and get in the erm...mood. (I HAD to write that)
