Maruja are unleashing sonic hellfire with their latest single, ‘One Hand Behind The Devil’. The track is a frenzied amalgamation of break-beat-punk, harsh noise, and cosmic jazz, clocking in at a relentless 4 minutes of raw intensity. ‘One Hand Behind The Devil’ showcases Maruja’s devilish ambitions and their knack for creating music that defies categorisation.
Maruja’s previous single, ‘Zeitgeist’, received accolades as it was added to Spotify’s New Music Friday playlist and earned airplay on Radio 1 and Apple Music shows. The band has been on a rapid ascent, with a longlisting for Glastonbury’s Emerging Talent Competition and sold-out shows at venues like Brixton’s Windmill and Manchester’s YES Pink Room. Their debut EP, ‘Knocknarea‘, earned widespread acclaim, drawing comparisons to bands like Black Country, New Road, Black Midi, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, and Swans.
Maruja’s live performances are a testament to their explosive energy, and their reputation as one of Manchester’s most turbulent emerging bands is well-deserved.
