Mowgli of “San Francisco” Fame Releases New Single

in New Music by

The indie-rock group The Mowgli’s (a band famous for the hit song “San Francisco”) have premiered their new single “Bad Thing” via Yahoo! Music today. Listen to the song which YAHOO! describes as “Irresistibly catchy…” (9/8/16) from the Los Angeles-based sextet’s third album “Where’d your weekend go?” due out September 30 HERE.

“‘Bad Thing’ is a song that explores loneliness, a theme that shows itself a lot on this record,” explains Katie Jane Earl vocalist for The Mowgli’s. “In the song we talk about the desire to connect with other people as a means of escaping loneliness, only to find out that loneliness still lingers…But maybe that’s not such a bad thing.”

The band will kick off their fall headlining U.S. tour (see dates below) on Saturday, September 17 at KAABOO Del Mar Festival in San Diego and then continue through Tuesday, October 18 in Tucson, AZ with Colony House and DREAMERS supporting on the road.
