By Rick Slagter, Rock At Night Groningen, The Netherlands
The Dutch band Mundo Park released it’s first album Promise of the Night in a very energetic show. The band played the complete album containing songs with catchy melodies, strong hook lines, a kind of uptempo indie rock with bits of atmospheric post rock and stadium bombast.
Since their start in 2010 Mundo Park is known for its live shows. The five musicians enjoy performing for an audience. Their first single was discovered by one of the most popular radio stations in The Netherlands, and after performing a live show the band played at many festivals and clubs, including providing the music for two episodes of a famous Dutch tv show. Maybe this was the reason we had to wait for their debut album. On the other hand, the album sounds mature, and Mundo Park is ready now to cross the Dutch borders.
