Mo’Booty, a psych-surf Francophone band, casts shades of punk over their slowly flooding Miami hometown landscape. Their sound is heavy, thick, loud, and sometimes noisy, but always hits with a purpose. The band has kept busy self recording a demo, touring across Florida and beyond to 2016's SXSW in Austin, TX, and playing everything from DIY spaces to festival stages around South Florida. Starting as a duo with Monica McGivern and Alexandre "Booty" Merbouti, and later with the of Cody Mentelos, Mo'Booty draws inspiration from noir films, Quentin Tarantino soundtracks and the general decay of the world today. They are currently in the process of recording their first full length LP for a release alongside a North American tour in 2018.
"It sounds like a crossbreeding of David Lynch’s “Lost Highway,“ Dick Dale on acid, and a Humphrey Bogart gumshoe film noir." - Purehoney Magazine
