Mount Peru

Mount Peru

 Somerville, Massachusetts, USA

Mount Peru is a rock and roll band with roots in americana and folk, who are blasting their carefully crafted songs through a kaleidoscope of noise, upward into earth's atmosphere for all to witness. With a classic rock heart and a progressive vision, this unit is hell-bent on carrying the torch.


To hell with geography. Mount Peru mines subterranean elements to create Cosmic American music - clearly, this earth is not their home. Formed by atmospheric pressures on far-flung stellar material, they may in fact be the finest or only band that Boston’s Glam Hangover/Powerpop/Post-Americana scene has ever produced.
A bright shiny comet flashing in the northern sky, Mount Peru rose meteorically in August 2008 from the luminous dust of a celestial body known as the Whiskey Giants; a collective of audio astronauts whose mothership crash-landed in Somerville one night a few years back, next to the Market Basket just east of Union Square. They are hard at work promoting their debut album, which is a lush banquet of magical-realist madrigals and pirate transmissions from a heartbroken planet. People, get ready.

When you heard the chimes at midnight
you were all alone
And no one was waiting for your call
on the telephone
So look through your sweet blue eyes and see
when all they did for you—
It only makes you wanna cry

And darlin’ don’t it feel the same way too
You’re all-la-la-la-a-lone
And it’s all because of you

Ooh ooh ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh ooh

When I finally lit my lantern
in your little room, you know
Might as well be knockin’ on your door
upon the moon

And summer won’t be comin’ very soon
So put away all your little dresses
And sing a lonely tune, ooh-ooh-ooh
La-la-la-la-la-la-la, la la la
Ooh ooh ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh ooh
La-la-na na-na

Untie your tongue
Put Sticky Fingers on
And let it
