Listen to MAIRU
Some bands take time to develop, taking years to craft their best work, while others seem to arrive fully-formed and armed with everything they need to succeed. Leeds-based outfit Mairu formed a little over a year ago and fall firmly into the latter camp. Their debut, ‘Sacred Dissonance’, is dark and dynamic post-metal and doom for fans of Cult of Luna, Neurosis, and nodding your head until it falls off your neck. World-beating quality from out of nowhere.
