Good Day Noir Family,
our “E.A.Poets Approved/Bands We Like” section is dedicated to Mantis State. I discovered this Band while shuffling songs on Spotify and I liked their refined and innovative music.
This is a band that isn’t here to play around, these guys are taking their project very seriously.
Mantis State already have the uniqueness of sound that makes them instantly recognizable.
Music that winks at the eighties but manages to be incredibly modern.
The saxophone starts softly and then instead screams in a crescendo of emotions.
The chord progression is never banal and obvious and you can hear that these guys have spent a lot of time in the rehearsal room because they sound very tight!
The continuous harmonic and melodic variations keep the listener glued to the speakers from the first to the last second.
A mature band and ready for the big audience.
They play a genre that certainly could appeal to many people and have all the credentials to breakthrough.
Sweetest Feature is Mantis State’s Single Out Now!
Refined harmonic choices, this band is ready!
Quote: “We are Mantis State, a seven-piece band from Leeds.
Our new track “Sweetest Feature” is a song about unveiling the part of you that you’ve been scared to show. The track is a complex mix of heavy riffs, ambient electronic sounds and warm sax tones, that will capture the attention of any listener from the alt-rock, pop rock and funk rock genres.
Already having played The Jazz Cafe, London, Band On The Wall, Manchester and getting through to Hot Vox’s: New Blood competition semi-finals, prior to the Corona outbreak, we’ve got big plans for 2021″.
