Getting To Know... Mo Bedick

After a run of immersive releases under their belt these last few years, Dutch outfit Mo Bedick are back to their vibrant ways once again on the shimmering new single 'Cemetery Caretaker'.

Lifted from their forthcoming debut album ‘Whirligig’, which is due out on the 15th March through Dutch label Geertruida, 'Cemetery Caretaker' makes for a wonderfully warm and breezy listen. Bringing back more of that rich and psychedelic indie-rock aesthetics they are known for, we can't wait to hear what this new full-length has in store for us as well.

So with the new single available to stream now, we sat down with them to find out more about their origins and what has been inspiring them most lately.


What was the first instrument you fell in love with?

When I was 6 my mum and dad took me to the local music school to check out which/whether there was an instrument I’d like to play. Funnily enough it was the cello, but that was after being denied drumming lessons because my parents prioritised their sanity.

What kind of music did you love when you were younger?

The first musical love was Queen; the bombasticality, the glamour, the flamboyance, singing guitar harmonies, operatic revival shit. I was a busy kid, which required busy music I guess.

What was the first album you remember owning?

I’d like to give a cool answer like Abbey Road or Kraftwerk but I’m pretty sure it’s Basshunter - Boten Anna; Swedish electronic producer. It’s either that or Guns N Roses greatest hits when I was about 8.

What is the one song you wished you could have written yourself?

Angeles - Elliott Smith

Do you have any habits or rituals you go through when trying to write new music?

We write the music with the full band, usually jamming, trying stuff out and muttering random words. After 2-3 rehearsals there is a vague song structure and I record it on my phone and listen to it on my way to wherever in the train/cycling and write down some lyrics. to be honest this can also happen 4-5 months later. So I’d say transport!

Who are your favourite artists you have found yourself listening to at the moment?

In 2023, none other than Lil Yachty released a psych rockish record which absolutely slaps. Especially the tune “the BLACK seminole”. And of course Personal Trainer, a Dutch band who’ve always been a big inspiration for me even though we don’t really make the same type of music, but their stage energy is SICK.

If you could open a show for anyone in the world, who would it be?

Anyone who would have us really. (But if we could open for Harry Styles that would be cool). We’re opening for a science lecture in Amsterdam in May, absolutely loved that idea as well, mixing different cultural activities.

What do you find is the most rewarding part about being a musician?

People liking your stuff, as in, really liking it; you see them listening to your stuff because they really dig it, not just because they are friends/family.

And what is the most frustrating part?

The red figures in my bank account. (Looking at you Spotify)

And what is the best piece of advice you have received as a musician?

“Big dirty stinking bass, dirty stinking bass!"
