MOB BOUNCE released their brand new EP, Transformation on August 16, 2019 via RPM Records.
MOB BOUNCE says,
“This album is our rebirth state. It’s about our resilience and courage to continue being a voice for our people. The transformations we go through in life can be challenging and painful, but our spirits keep guiding us and music is a vessel for those spirits to live. This album is a reminder that sometimes you have to go through many seasons before you’re ready. It’s a journey about coming back to yourself and who you are and finding the strength to keep going. It starts down below the ground with Journey to the Cave, and each song moves up a level, until you’re actually above the forest, flying over it all, and feeling that freedom on Gather Your Feathers. We wanted the music to feel like you’re transforming as you listen”.
We caught up with them for our newest segment of Five Questions With, which you can check out below, as well as the EP.
