Formed in late 2010, punk-alt-pop duo Mobina Galore comprise Jenna Priestner (guitar/vocals) and Marcia Hanson (drums/vocals). A debut 2012 EP Skeletons was accompanied by national touring, and they've gigged extensively this year. Fitting then that their strong new album is entitled Cities Away. Produced by John Paul Peters (Propagandhi, Royal Canoe, Comeback Kid), this is high-energy punk rock with an emotional core. A vinyl version is out too.
MG have been supporting the album with western dates. Remaining gigs are at Rock Bottom in Saskatoon (Dec. 19), Park Theatre in Winnipeg (Dec. 27), and North Hill Inn at Brandon (Jan. 3).
