The Mahas

The Mahas

The Mahas are exciting! This is Houston garage rock, and I love it. The first track on their BandCamp is probably my favorite. It’s called “Dead Of Night”, and it’s got this really great punk rock chorus where they just chant “Dead of night!” really excitedly. There are guitars squealing around all over the place, and the bass and kick pump through the whole track. There’s a sick guitar solo, and there is zero dead space. The dead of night is the best part of the day. Houston knows best.

“Dead Of Night” is sufficiently lengthy, coming in at two minutes and forty-seven seconds. The next track, “Fool”, is exactly one minute shorter. It’s just as exciting though. I love those lead guitar parts. The vocals are in the mix exactly where they should be. There are great stops, and it’s full of energy.

The last track on the BandCamp is the longest, but it’s not any less exciting. It begins with a bit more of a build than the other two songs, and the instrumental sections are longer. It’s definitely really great though. It has this really phenomenal guitar solo as well. Squeal!

I don’t know how often The Mahas play shows, but if you like garage rock or energy punk, you should absolutely try to check them out. I’m coming to Texas sometime this summer, and I’m putting these guys on my list of bands to try and see. I hope they like small venues or house shows.
