Australian newcomers Mazy reveal harmony-rich new single 'Enemies'

Words: Ellie Ward

Sydney three-piece Mazy follow debut single 'Heliar' from last year with 'Enemies', out yesterday (May 4) via Sweat It Out.

The track comes with an accompanying video, directed by Courtney Brookes, where 'enemies' try and ruin their rivals' chances in a gymnastic dance competition.

"'Enemies' is a statement on the underlying similarities between all people. We as a society tend to notice the differences, and then draw lines across them dividing people into categories like sex, race, class, age and religion. We wanted a song that expresses our belief, that we have so much more that binds us together across these divides than what separates us. In the end, we all want the same thing," explain the band of the song's concept.

Consisting of Ben Tierney (vocals), Tim Grimes (synths, keys), and Sam Clayton (bass), Mazy draw on a wide array of influences for their psychedelic indie electronic sound to create something with a nostalgic overtone. On 'Enemies' the feel is familiar, yet also different as the psychedelic vocal harmonies glide smoothly over retro synths and crisp percussion.

Mazy make their live show debut on May 19 at 107 Projects in Redfern, New South Wales.
