Mousey


4 March 2023

Time

11.00AM – 11.45AM

Venue: Market Square

Mousey is the project of Ōtautahi based, Silver Scroll nominated songwriter Sarena Close. With a strong sense of melody and emotionally raw sincerity, Mousey cherishes the art of communicating the human experience above all else. She is inspired by local artists Aldous Harding, Tiny Ruins (playing at the Great Hall on Saturday night), and Anthonie Tonnon, as well as Big Thief, Lomelda, and Eels. And yet her sound defies the restrictions of genre and her music provides a unique and powerful insight into this wonderful and confusing world.

As a live act, Mousey has played headline tours in New Zealand and Australia and opened for acclaimed artists such as The Beths, Reb Fountain, The Chills, Princess Chelsea and more. Her performances are characterised by her faultless vocals, her multi instrumental musicianship and raw emotional energy.

“What’s immediately striking about Mousey is her vocal dexterity and purposefulness. Every choice she makes is deliberate, toying with dynamics and emotion, drawing every set of eyes to her.” - Muzic.net.nz
