mazes - a thousand heys (cd)


ARTIST // mazes
LABEL // fat cat (uk)
CAT // fat103cd


Jangly guitars, fuzz-laden bass lines, punchy percussion and undeniable pop hooks collide with a youthful exuberance to great effect on A Thousand Heys, the debut full-length album from UK foursome Mazes. Brash, bratty, and incredibly catchy, the album recorded on an old lightship moored on the Thames! collects a slew of new songs, as well as newly recorded versions of tracks that first appeared on their much talked-about back catalog of 7-inches, splits and cassette releases. Mazes are the collision point for Kinks/Big Star tunefulness, the raw, infectious attack of the best Buzzcocks singles, and the occasional mellow meander of early Pavement but a list of influences as long as the day cant capture the smile-inducing, foot-tapping immediacy of A Thousand Heys.
