'A Thousand Heys' is the debut album from London based indie band Mazes, who have here produced a set of upbeat, guitar heavy tracks that focus on the path of life, from youth through to post-adolescent.
Surprisingly, all of Mazes still have day-jobs, though considering the critical praise the band have accumulated, from the NME in particular, they will probably become fully-fledged professional musicians before long.
Mazes immerged from the burgeoning culture of D.I.Y. marketing and production within the U.K. indie scene, which utilises everything from grassroots campaigns via the internet to lo-fi recording techniques.
With 'A Thousand Heys', however, Mazes have spent time creating quite a long and considered debut. The production is a little rough around the edges, but the distortion on the guitars and vocals doesnt really warrant the bands self proclaimed lo-fi alternative title. The music Mazes create, in reality, is upbeat indie-pop; indie-pop that is so crammed full of influences of that nature that it really cannot be considered to be anything more elaborate or exciting .
