Malaysian pop rockers The MASH deliver the goods with ‘Misery Of You and Me’.
Drawing on all those classic styles found in tried and tested emo indie rock, ‘MOYAM’ has it all – a strong guitar hook with lashings of stadium rock reverb and delay, a straight ahead drum groove, and emotion filled melodies in the vein of Taking Back Sunday, Blink-182, and the rest. It’s the kind of track that could easily be done and dusted at the three minute mark, but here we have a fun final minute where the band pulls out all the stops to unload a joyous package of sparkling pop rock fun. It’s the kind of song that, depending on your age admittedly, will fill you with nostalgia and make you want to go back over your CD collection to remember a time of teenage angst and loud guitars. ‘Misery Of You and Me’ is the perfect entry point to discovering the music of The MASH, and watch this space for their upcoming EP expected mid 2015.
