Single Review: Millie Manders and the Shut Up- Shut Your Mouth

‘Shut Your Mouth’ is the incredibly catchy, earworm single from London based band Mille Manders and the Shut Up.

The band have already been attracting a lot of praise for their cross genre style music. Vive Le Rock said- “MMATSU bring fierce and addictive ska-punk with emotive and urgent lyrics; tipped as the UK’s answer to The Interrupters with high octane live shows and an attitude backed with morality …” and Kerrang! said: “There’s just so much spirit in that band.”  An internet search on the band will bring you many more similar quotes.

‘Shut Your Mouth’ is my first personal run in with Millie and the Shut Ups, and what a fun one it is.  The song is about fair weather friends, and people who only want you when they need something. An experience I think most of us have had at some point. 

This experience has been wrapped up in an ear catching bow of rap, ska, rock and pop. Punchy guitars, a big sing along chorus make ‘Shut Your Mouth’ a single to remember.  The song is filled with a fiery energetic energy.
