BUY/STREAM: MAZY – INTERSTELLA
Following on from their last single ‘Flowers‘ which saw Sydney band Mazy continue to define their billowy neo-psychedelic pop sound, the band returns with an equally psychedelic, dance heavy tune in ‘Interstella’.
Sonically this new offering has all the colours of other Aussie psych masters in Tame Impala, Pond yet remains unique in it’s effortless sway and continuous pulse pushing it into an almost vaporwave soundscape akin to that of MGMT and Washed Out. The chorus triumphantly brings you in to feel the enlightening resolution of ‘floating way’ into space and through both the lyrics and harmony, the listener is planted deep within the band’s world of space and technicolour.
Mazy are continuing the Australian psychedelic revival all the while bringing the party and dance influence too. The band says of the track, “This one has become the band’s favourite track. We were given a lecture by Kim Moyes (The Presets) on how bad our cheap vocoder sound was on this, before he played us various daft punk songs to show us what a good one sounds like. We kept it anyway. It’s also Kim’s favourite now but he still hates the vocoder. Interstella explores themes of time, isolation and human connection, all through a celestial lens. It also bangs in zero gravity.”
Consisting of Ben Tierney (Vocals/Guitar), Tim Grimes (Keys/Percussion/Vocals) and Sam Clayton (Bass/Vocals), the band fuses rock n roll, acid house, pop, and dance into a kaleidoscopic explosion of colour and noise. Mazy blends hypnotic vocal melodies with anthemic guitars and soaring synth hooks which echo the likes of Jagwar Ma, POND, The Beach Boys and The Stone Roses.
With their live show being the centre of their musicianship, the band have impressed over the summer with shows such as Yours and Owls Sundays at North Wollongong Hotel supporting Aodhan, as well as Freekin Weekends at Factory Theatre in Sydney. Mazy are looking forward to sharing a plethora of new music with their fans and you can catch them playing The Metro Theatre in Sydney for Great Southern Nights in association with Sweat It Out. There they will be supporting Crooked Colours, and performing alongside a stellar line-up including PRICIE, Annie Bass, and Leer – tickets HERE
