A Thousand Heys

UK Indie Rock from MAZES

MazesThis group has been stuck in my head for the past couple of days after I got a taste of their new debut record.

They’re Mazes, a 4-piece formed in Manchester, UK who are now kicking it in London.

They’re drawing big comparisons to British contemporaries Yuck (who are playing a couple of sold out gigs at Lincoln Hall this week, plus Pitchfork Festival), putting them as the next in line of guitar-based English exports.

It’s extremely catchy and full of hooks, and I think you’ll dig it if you’re a fan of 90’s alt-rock like Pavement, or the likes of Sloan or Guided By Voices.

Adding to the story behind this music on the album, entitled A Thousand Heys (out now on Fat Cat Records), is that it’s a result of recording sessions that took place on a boat that is moored on the River Thames.

Catch them bringing these songs to a live stage when they hit Schubas for a show with White Denim (who are very good, as well) on 30th June.  Tickets are $12 and you can get them here.
