Four friends based in Evansville, Indiana, Mock Orange have been writing and performing music for more than a decade. In 1998 the band released their first proper record, Nines & Sixes, a college radio hit that charted in the Top 60 in CMJ. Their second release, The Record Play, arrived in 2000 with production courtesy of Mark Trombino.
2004's highly acclaimed Mind Is Not Brain saw Mock Orange make a huge stylistic leap forward, earning them a spot on MTV2's Dew Circuit Breakout and support slots with Minus The Bear and a reformed Braid.
This year Mock Orange return with their best record yet. Captain Love combines the sophisticated songcraft of Pavement and The Flaming Lips with the melodic bite of Weezer.
