Maruja

Following their completely sold out tour of the UK last month, Manchester’s most in demand band, Maruja, announce a huge 40 date tour across Europe and the UK this Autumn. The announcement follows the release of their sophomore EP ‘Connla’s Well’, which has seen the band skyrocketed to one of the most talked about new bands in the country, with BBC 6Music playlisting the single ‘The Invisible Man’ and inviting the band to play a live session at Maida Vale.

Artists in the truest sense of the word, Maruja’s ferocious combination of punk, harsh noise, and transcendent cosmic jazz is winning fans at an extraordinary rate. Driven not just by passion but rather an all-consuming need to create and perform with a visceral intensity, they are both electrifying and terrifying.

New EP ‘Connla’s Well’ is a 5 track collection and the definition of a body of work, opening with the instrumental title track, which swells into ‘The Invisible Man’, a profound examination of the mental health crisis set against a mystical backdrop that effortlessly moves between cosmic jazz and break-beat-punk. The frantic Zeitgeist follows, with the group’s hardcore influences coming to the fore. Last year’s blistering single ‘One Hand Behind The Devil’ is next, before the EP is brought to an almost meditative close with the sublime ‘Resisting Resistance’.

Maruja’s debut EP ‘Knocknarea’ ended last year as the No.1 rated EP on RateYourMusic, whilst Anthony Fantano included the release in his 2023 Top 3 EPs. Their breathtaking live show has seen the band selling out Supersonic in Paris, The Temple in Athens, Camden’s Underworld and an entire UK tour.
