Maff - "Walking On Fire"
Tuesday, July 7, 2015
Hailing from Chile's capital Santiago, Maff present their debut self-titled EP, featuring 8 tracks that delightfully whisp you in a whirlwind through such genres as shoegaze, alternative rock, noise pop and indie verging on grunge, but with a dose of electronica thrown in the blend. They are inspired by bands such as The Jesus and Mary Chain, The Pixies, Ride, Sonic Youth, and My Bloody Valentine.

Maff is clearly having a beautifully combined love affair with guitar pedals and synth, bringing the listener into a cosmic zone, with feelings ranging from revolution-bent to melancholic and even romantic at times. "After 15 years of personally searching and making music, each band member came to encounter an inflexion point in their lives called Maff," says Richi Gómez, founding member of Maff. "Maff is about serving music that liberates us from all our prior misconceptions," explains bandmate Talo Correa.

Maff was originally founded in 2012 by Ricardo (Richi) Gómez (Vocals / Bass / Guitar) & Nicolás (Nek) Colombres (Drums), who have been friends since childhood and have previously played together in various punk rock bands. They were later joined by Martín Colombres (Guitar) and Gonzalo (Talo) Correa (Guitar / Bass / Vocals / Synth). Maff composed, recorded and produced this EP in their own studio, lovingly called 'The Lab' owing to the experimental output they concocted there. This album explores such themes as innocence, mystycism, true love, loss, drugs, freedom and timelessness.

Their single "Walking On Fire" can be heard during the #NewMusic Show airing daily at 8am and 8pm Toronto time.
