Two of Brisbane’s most innovative and respected groups come together for a special release and performance. It’s been a long time coming for instrumental ensemble Mr. Maps and electronic pop outfit Hunz, who have been friends and collaborators for years, and they are now proud to be releasing a Split 7” together.
Mr. Maps have a reputation for electric live performances featuring lush cello and keyboard arrangements, contrasted with frenetic guitar, bass and drums. Hunz, on the other hand, are known for their emotive and raw brand of electronica featuring dreamy vocals and glitchy pulsating beats.
Both bands have stepped a little outside their comfort zone for this split release, borrowing elements of each others’ styles.
On the Mr. Maps side is ‘Those Boards Don’t Work on Water’, an abstract psychedelic dream riddled with a newfound punk-esque urgency. On the other side is ‘Owl Highway’, a track that sees Hunz go instrumental, ditching their trademark vocals for crunchy beats and catchy synth.
See these tracks in full swing as both bands unveil this new collaborative release in a live setting.
