Mockery is the music project from Mitch Klein, combining both spiritual and grounded lyrics with warm pianos and synths. He started writing music in high school and put Mockery together as a 3 piece band back in 2016. Mockery's newest album, Megafauna, was released in March 2024. The LP displays a wide range of genre inspiration from synth pop to folk and blues.
