VIDEO EXCLUSIVE: Mazes Album Teaser
Click above to watch an exclusive video teaser for Mazes’ second album ‘Ores And Minerals’.
Due for release on Fat Cat on 18th February, the album follows the band’s debut ‘A Thousand Heys’ and marks a move to a more expansive sound for Mazes.
Frontman Jack Cooper said of the album:
“Pretty much all of the songs on this new record are written around very repetitive intricate loops. I’d got tired of the way I wrote songs… it seemed very traditional and we all felt like we needed to do something new. Something really original… I don’t know whether it is… but we certainly tried to stretch ourselves. Bodies was one of the first songs and one of the most expansive. Playing it live feels like a release when contrasted with the first record tracks… like we’re being ourselves and playing to our individual strengths. The demo was written to an Arthur Russell loop so I guess he was an inspiration… there are always influences but it feels like we’ve hit on our own thing. Which feels like an achievement.”
