Biography

Just as news of Montreal's erupting music underground began to reach international ears, five young Montreal musicians did the unthinkable: They moved to Toronto. Out of step with the common thinking, for sure, but Mobile have never been common thinkers. Where most other bands are chafing at the stage, blinding visions of performing glory burning holes in their souls, Mobile spent three long, patient years in their isolated Montreal studio rehearsing, never venturing past the membrane of their common chrysalis until they were absolutely and utterly certain that they were wholly formed.

Says singer Mat: "We were frequently disappointed by live local bands who weren't prepared to do a real show. We wanted to be seen as a great band, a strong band. Our songwriting wasn't as strong as it is now, but we were really focused - rehearsing four times a week for three years makes you sound good." Three years in a milieu where three minutes generally tests the outside limits of endurance. As you might expect, they didn't emerge so much as explode.

Boyhood chums and amigos all, prior to their self-enforced captivity they'd been playing together for upwards of 15 years in various shapes and morphing forms that never strayed too far from the core. Close to a lifetime of shared musical history and carefully constructed creative intuition hermetically compressed into a dangerously tight unit. It's that volatility, that powerful release that had the band playing to full houses every time they ventured into their hometown's better venues.
