LA-by-way-of-Austin’s Mamalarky sound like a welcomed guzzle of cool water after prolonged dehydration. Floating through their music on a psych-pop cloud, swelling and diminishing, ebb and flowing through their lofty, pale-hued soundscape is a refreshing break from scuzzy guitars and odes to the psych-rock gods. Leaning into a fully contemporary soundspace led by collaborative efforts of Livvy Bennett, Dylan Hill, Michael Hunter, and Noor Khan, Mamalarky aren’t interested replicating or reinventing, choosing to revel in the “now.” But don’t let the lofty sounds fool you! Listen to the lyrics, and you’ll find yourself looking straight into the more intimate nooks of their soul and being. Grab your lover and your third and let your bodies take a float on the good ship Mamalarky.
