    In 2010, Mooshim launched their debut self titled EP at the Globe Theatre to what was described by critics as one of the most outstanding performances of the year.

    The Ep itself has been warmly received as one of the most original EP releases of 2010. It has received national air play and was featured on Sound Quality ABC National.

    'This self-released debut EP manages to go a long way in capturing a snapshot of the group s eclectic nature, with the three tracks on offer here representing an extremely impressive first taster of their sound.
