Mar Haze’s new EP Good Money will leave some groove lines in your heart

Four-piece Mar Haze vent some fresh and flavourful tunes with their new EP Good Money, releasing Friday, April 27. We’ve been lucky enough to give it a cheeky listen and let me tell ya, this one’s going off.

As a pure demonstration of the group’s love for rock, synth, dub, coastal melodies, RnB  and deeply groovy riffs, Good Money sure leaves a lasting impression.

Good Money from Mar Haze is a five-track EP sure to leave some groove lines in your heart. It’s a true reflection of where the band has been, and the high peaks they’re climbing to.

With this solid groove comes heavy bass riffage and smooth melodies that roll for the length of the five-track, making for an easy and joyful listen. It serves as a product of the band’s affection for fusing genres; exploring rock, reggae and hip hop to create something truly unique.

With a series of energetic performances up their sleeve, the four-piece has developed a strong following  and supported acts such as Ocean Alley, Black Seeds, Winston Surfshirt, The Beautiful Girls, Bootleg Rascal and Ash Grunwald.

Fit Freddy (perhaps an antithesis to Fat Freddy’s Drop?) kicks off the EP with hammering keys, setting the scene for a harmonious, riff-city bridge. Good Money is packed with punchy licks, building with the keys into a rocky chorus.

Strange flows with a upbeat melody and a funk fuelled hook, while Wonderland tunes into a softer synth side with lazy drums. The latter of those two have already seen the light of day – give it a spin below.

Front man Pat Kelly sheds light on the creative process behind Good Money, explaining how the band took their time to get the sounds just right.

“We spent a lot of time writing and fine tuning each track until we got them to a point where we were all happy with the finished product,” says Kelly.

“Recently transferring that onto the stage and seeing the crowd’s response to tracks that we’ve put so much creative energy into has been a real buzz.”
