Mwahaha’s new stream comes in the form of ‘Love’ and features a guest performance from tUnE-yArDs’* Merrill Garbuson which features on the band’s self-titled debut album, that is released on the 1st of July via US label Plug Research Records.
*Tune-Yards is the music project of New England native Merrill Garbus. When performing live, Garbus creates drum loops on the spot, and layers these with ukulele, voice, and electric bass played by Nate Brenner.
The psychedelic-electronic-pop quartet have produced an impressive debut inspired by prog rock where instruments are filtered through analog synths and drum machines allowing pop orientated material to harmonise with sprawling sonic landscapes.
Recorded by Eli Crews who is known for his work with Deerhoof, tUnE-yArDs, WHY? and Ex-Ray’s, the album was mixed at New and Improved Studios in Oakland, CA.
Mwahaha are Ross Peacock on vocals, synths, keys and drum programming; Nathan Tilton on bass and keys, Cyrus Tilton on guitar, keys and drum programming and James Murphy on drums.
