Maff

After releasing their debut 8-track EP two weeks ago, Santiago's Maff  continue to blaze a marked trail through the world of shoegaze, alternative rock, noise pop and grunge-tainted indie rock laced with electronica. Now the quartet are pleased to present their first single and debut video from this album for 'Act 1', a dark brooding instrumental piece that strikingly differs from Maff's other songs, but eases the listener in before having to jump into the mosh pit for the rest of the EP. 

Maff, whose main influences include The Jesus and Mary Chain, The Pixies, Ride, Sonic Youth, and My Bloody Valentine, is clearly having a beautifully combined love affair with guitar pedals and synth, arousing sensations 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.
