'Blemishes' sees Mt. Doubt frontman Leo Bargery’s songwriting meander into evermore subdued territories; seeking positivity at the nadir, finding beauty in the blemishes. Though still very much lyrically driven, the predominantly acoustic, “roomy”, sound of the track is underpinned by subtle, shimmering guitars added by long-term Mt. Doubt contributor and producer, James Callaghan, who recorded and produced the EP in the Edinburgh flat he shares with Bargery.

Taking cues from acts such as Nick Cave, Silver Jews, Sparklehorse and John Grant, 'Blemishes' finds Mt. Doubt at their most bare, and most assured yet.
