“We’ll be eagerly awaiting the release of their debut EP” - Savage Thrills

“formed just over a year ago and are already showing enormous potential with their early material” - Record of the Day

“We adore that, really love it. More please Mugen” - Alan Raw - BBC Introducing

Catchy intricately woven guitar riffs, heavy bass lines and soulfully sincere vocal tones underpin Mugen's distinctive Indie rock sound.
The project is based around lead singer, guitarist and songwriter Harry Kitchington. Formed just over a year ago, the Leeds indie alt three piece have been biding their time, perfecting their craft and carefully constructing a beautifully thought out musical and visual pairing featuring Mugen the hedgehog, and animal with an indulgent drinking and smoking habit who traverses the terrain of the human world as a personification of the music of indie songwriter Harry Kinchington (Mugen), who the character is also loosely based on. The project is rolling out a unique street art campaign alongside an animated series set to provide a backdrop for the music of Mugen. With this in hand an exciting year lies ahead of the act. As a finalist of the Leeds and Reading festival’s “Ones To Watch’, and their debut animated music video out September 9th alongside a string of exciting releases to follow, Mugen are set to be heard of a great deal more in the future.
Most recently, Harry was flown out to Amsterdam to write at a camp as part of the Amsterdam Dance Event - no small feat for such a young songwriter so early on in his career, and a clear indicator of his diversity and strength of songwriting.
Mugens next single ‘Come And Go’ out November 10th signals the halfway point in the band's first EP, with two more tracks to follow, including the final single from the EP ‘Going Down’ - set for release with a specially curated piece of content designed for Android and iPhone. Mugen are also set to head into the studio later this month to record their next EP due for release next year.

Don’t sleep on Mugen, there is a lot more to come.
