Spirit of Shoegaze Alive with Maff
From the instant this new Maff song jumps through your speakers, the guitars and percussion crash upon you, wave after wave of noise…beautifully crafted, of course. Then, the group pull back, allowing the Spanish lyrics to take center-stage, which makes sense seeing as the group calls Chile home. For me, the draw is in the unique details that flourish throughout, such as the way the guitars ring, then abruptly stop around the 1:20 mark, culminating in a dizzying nosedive of guitar noise. The band will release their Melanina EP on April 2nd, and I’m crossing my fingers that it’s filled with tracks as beautiful as this.
