Måntra release new single, announce date with Fizzy Blood

London’s Måntra have unveilled a new single, “Individual”, available to stream / purchase now. Produced by Tom Dalgety (Pixies, Royal Blood, Ghost), the track showcases emotive lyrics combined with haunting melodies, crisp, distorted guitars and thundering drums. Vocalist / guitarist Simon Stark says:

We thought we’d follow up our dreamy ambient electronic EP Sleep with the most aggressive song we’ve done yet. I like the naivety of the lyrics and Tom Dalgety’s wizardly production skills.

West London rock band Måntra would rather stand up and deliver music with a message for the left-behinds and the disenfranchised. “It started at university”, explains frontman/guitarist and the band’s principal songwriter Simon Stark. “I felt so removed from everything socially and emotionally. I just didn’t want to be there, it was numbing for me. Music was the only thing that actually meant something”.

Simon would go on to form Måntra with two friends from Ealing, Richard Leeds (bass) and Rob Emms (drums), as an expressive outlet for these subversive sentiments, underpinned by their shared musical influences.

The band have announced that they’ll be opening for Fizzy Blood and Forever Cult at London’s Camden Assembly on February 28th.
