Blurring the line between static and moving imagery, Mazes’ new video for ‘Bodies’ is a disconcerting watch. The single was released digitally this week via FatCat Records, and the video, directed by Austin of Vision Fortune, reflects the band’s recent shift from fast, thrashy pop into the considered body of work that is their new record, Ores and Minerals.

Ores and Minerals is a sprawling eccentric opus, self produced by the band this summer in various makeshift Hackney, UK studios.

The album draws from a much broader palette than the band’s debut; utilizing repetitive loops and samples, playing up a rhythm section that could walk into any recording session by The Fall and feel comfortable, honing an expansive loose guitar sound and all the while retaining that unmistakable knack with melody. It’s a really exciting and refreshingly original record.
