Mobile Steam Unit is an elite product development team specializing in “music for business.” Founded in 2014, we seek to humanize entities and ideas through song.
Born out of years of diverse artistic collaborations, a steady hunt for an original music endeavor
of their own and a common interest for spreading the message of not taking things too
seriously, RANN is the result of 4 Brooklyn based musicians locking themselves in an isolated
cabin during the winter of 2014.
In less than a year of existence RANN wrote, produced and released a nine-track album
(“Yellowgun”) and played more than 100 shows in more than 40 different cities in the U.S
including 8 shows at SXSW and renown NYC venues such as Rough Trade, (Le) Poisson Rouge,
The Knitting Factory and Webster Hall. RANNs first album "Yellowgun" received several reviews
from online press internationally:
"For young bands, there are no greater elements essential to success than having great songs
and a great live show. The rest is just static.
For Brooklyn-based psychedelic-leaning pop-rock band RANN, combining the two is a no-
brainer." (Vanyaland)
“They’re the latest Brooklyn based band to carve out a niche for themselves in that idiosyncratic
indie scene—a five-man ensemble forged from an elusive winter’s night “locking themselves in
an isolated cabin” and reemerging with their own collage-genre of rock, dream pop, and punk.
Yes, Rann dove into those well-visited depths of trippy psychedelia and in-your-face, garage-
band angst, but managed to pull it off without merely repackaging the greats (and kudos to
them for that). As for where they fall on the spectrum, think Phoenix with a touch more grit, or
The Strokes draped in synth.” (Thrd coast)
“My ready-made categories and standards of evaluation didn’t quite apply to their music. And
yet I saw so much in it that was familiar: Lucy and her celestial diamonds were there. The loose
brick in the wall was there. The owner of that lonely heart was there. Every breath I’ve taken, it
seems, was there. That is, the music incorporated the trajectory of an entire tradition that I, as a
listener, could recognize. Still, the feeling of vertigo was undeniable.” (J.P Pereira)
RANN just came back from their second national tour this year, where they spent three weeks
of isolation at another cabin writing songs for their new album. RANNs ever growing followers
eagerly expect the bands new album in 2018
