Unceasingly energetic trio Mazes are back, bringing with them word of a new album entitled ‘Wooden Aquarium’.
Recorded in New York alongside producer Jonathan Schenke (Parquet Courts), it’s a record that sees their already frenetic, rhythm-centric sound build and build into a new world. And bloody hell does its lead track set an almighty stall.
‘Astigmatism’ arrives at a frenzied pace, with reversed guitars and talk of body parts clashing head-to-head into a thrilling re-affirming of Mazes’ amped-up excitability.
We’ve got the UK premiere, streamable below. Pre-order new album ‘Wooden Aquarium’ via FatCat here - it’s out 8th September.
