Formed around the Venice Beach, CA scene in 2010, The Mowgli's grew out of a loose collective of musicians that would play back to back warehouse and all night house parties. The group coalesced into 8 for their debut independent release in 2012, “Sound The Drum”. Many of those songs ended up on their debut major label release “Waiting For The Dawn” in 2013, including the hit song “San Francisco”. Playing some 400 shows in two years, they performed at dozens of festivals including Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, Firefly and ACL as well as appearing on many late-night shows.
2015’s “Kids In Love” LP found a slicker alt-pop sound, led by the summery jam “I'm Good”. Produced by Tony Hoffer (Fitz & The Tantrums), Matt Radosevich (Walk The Moon) and Captain Cuts (Grouplove), the songs leaned away from their hippy-influenced debut in favor of pop-leaning fist pumpers such as “You're Not Alone” and the title track.
For their third LP 2016's “Where'd Your Weekend Go?” the group spent the majority of their time working as a full band collectively on songs. The record reflected the group's experiences of constant road-life, maintaining relationships and trying to find your place in a confusing world. Leaving Universal Music in 2018 the band have released 2 independent EP's: “I Was Starting To Wonder” and “American Feelings” which have scored a pair of their most popular songs in “Kansas City” and “I Feel Good About This”.
