DBB13 Artist Profile: Museum Mouth

Museum Mouth is no stranger to WKNC. With their heartfelt lyrics and indie punk feels, these Double Barrel veterans have garnered a supportive and loyal following here in the Triangle.

Coming out of NC coastal town Southport, Museum Mouth formed in 2009. They released their first EP I Am the Idiot Of The Jungle in 2010, followed quickly by full-length Tears in my Beer. This album, along with their later releases Sexy But Not Happy and Alex I Am Nothing received four-star reviews on PunkNews.org. The group gained their first big recognition winning mtvU’s Freshmen in 2012, getting the title track of SBNH aired on the channel. Since their start, Museum Mouth has only continued to grow and cultivate their sound. They also released a split EP last year with Double Barrel artist Naked Naps.

DBB13 Artist Profile: Naked Naps

image

Originating at the beloved house show venue Mattress Fort and boasting a minimal two-piece sound, Naked Naps have exemplified the DIY rock scene in the Triangle for years. And they’re coming to Double Barrel hot off of their second full-length record. The duo have a unique talent for creating songs that feel sincerely emotional while simultaneously detached and cynical. Their music is bursting with energy but is also subtle and understated. The strong following their fantastic debut album generated is only getting bigger after their latest record and their split EP with fellow DBB artist Museum Mouth. With their new material ready to hit the stage for the first time, Naked Naps is the perfect band to kick things off at this year’s Double Barrel Benefit.
