“Expressive folk-rock, off-kilter experimentation, road-worn psychedelics and emotional songwriting. They manage anti-folk grit alongside the melodic strength of '70s rock, but their hooks move with an arena-ready utility.”
"When we pulled in the band Uncle Mountain, from Asheville was playing... The harmonies were super complex as if they sat down with a piano and came up with the most difficult groups of notes that sound good together and then practiced the ever-living shit out of it until it became 2nd nature. I dug it"
"Hard to describe with a quick and easy genre tag - everything from traditional Americana to modern Indie Pop - sounds rich, layered, lively, and most surprisingly, cohesive."
“An inspiring marriage of rhythmic grooves and razor-sharp vocal harmonies with an Appalachian tinge, Uncle Mountain will not go unnoticed.”
“The Beach Boys of the mountains.”
“Indie-rockers Uncle Mountain are immediately recognizable with their smooth harmonies and poppy lyrics.”
“Uncle Mountain’s sound seems designed to fill the idiosyncratic folk-rock band slot on movie soundtracks. That’s far more of a compliment than a diss; the lilting harmonies and adventurous arrangements recall accomplished, similar-minded acts like Guster and Dispatch. Basically, Uncle Mountain makes the kind of music that you could see appealing equally to the jam-rock crowd as to the more open-minded indie-rock fans.”
“The combination of Uncle Mountain's music and lyrics are absolutely compelling. Together, they touch me in ways I've never experienced and as I listen, I see dance. I never grow tired of their work.”
“Lush vocal harmonies and tasteful instrumental work provide a strong background for the band's super catchy songwriting. Uncle Mountain has all the makings of one of those bands that manage to get really big really fast.”
