Preview: Just Mustard

by Adam Aiken

Just Mustard will build on their busy first half of 2022 with a headline UK and European tour that will see the Irish five-piece play Norwich in September.

After enjoying a slot at Glastonbury and supporting Fontaines D.C., the County Louth band will be at Voodoo Daddy’s on Saturday, September 17, as they promote second album Heart Under.

It’s an album that has techno beats and dreamy moments alongside the guitars, but also an industrial feel.

“This album felt very blue to us,” says singer Katie Ball.

“There was sadness and sorrow in the album, and it felt like being underwater and under something very heavy.

“We let that influence the music, but it wasn’t a decision – it just naturally happened that way.”

In November, Just Mustard will release a special deluxe version of Heart Under, comprising a double LP  in a gatefold jacket and obi strip, a booklet with in-studio photos and handwritten lyrics from Ball, and an art print of Graham Dean’s In The Water Waiting painting that’s on the album cover.

The band’s first album, Wednesday, which was released in 2018, won critical acclaim and was a Choice Music Prize nominee for Irish Album of the Year.
