Formed in 2015 as the project of frontman Leo Bargery, Mt. Doubt has evolved musical arms and
legs into a multi instrumental alt-rock / dark-pop band with comparison made to The National, Nick
Cave, and The Twilight Sad.
Sophomore album In Awe of Nothing was released via Scottish Fiction to critical acclaim, receiving
praise from the likes of The Herald, The National, The List and The Skinny. Radio airplay followed
on BBC 6Music, BBC Radio Scotland, KEXP, XFM, and Amazing Radio, as well as playing two live
sessions for BBC Radio Scotland.
Tipped as one of BBC Radio Scotland’s Vic Galloway’s ‘Top 25 Scottish Artists to Watch’ and
described as “a massively distinctive new voice in Scottish music” by BBC Radio Scotland’s Roddy
Hart; 2017 was a year of further development with the release of two new EP’s, The Loneliness of
the TV Watchers and Moon Landings.
Live the band have been praised for their energetic and atmospheric performances at T in the
Park, Belladrum, Brew at the Bog, ButeFest, and XpoNorth. Recent supports slots include high
profile bands such as We Were Promised Jetpacks, Errors, Admiral Fallow, and White Lies.
“Rich emotive song writing.”
– Vic Galloway, BBC Radio Scotland
“There’s no denying Bargery’s ability to create atmospheric indie-pop with delicate and sinewy
– The Herald
“Immediate comparisons will be drawn with The National.”
– The National
“Fuses a charming Edwyn Collins baritone with flavours of The National’s anthemic mid-life
trepidation and Springsteen’s way with an everyperson guitar riff and chorus”
– The List
“Leo Bargery has a voice like caramel, with just a hint of something grittier alongside. He croons
his way through the record with a seductive nonchalance”
– The Skinny
