THE NIGHT & DAY SHOWCASE

MANALISHI

Manalishi are a guttural plethora of raw energy, F*** you attitude, and scruffy hair. Consisting of lead vocalist/rhythm guitarist Dominic Strett, lead guitarist Thomas Ryder, bassist Josh Urpi, and drummer Charlie Gough; they concentrate on their music leaving your ears ringing, and a persistent scratchy feeling in the back of your throat.
With a crunching fusion of grungey, noisy alternative rock; and a disillusion for the conventional, they merge captivating melodies with a rib-punching wall of sound and melancholic chords, complete with unpolished, squealing guitars, and the disgusting scars to prove it. “Manalishi are a band with attitude in abundance; you can hear it in their music and see it in their shows. Heavy drumming and over the top guitar riffs create the spine to what is a truly powerful sound that you’ll feel shake the room when played with the right attention it requires.” The Pentatonic Magazine

The self-titled EP is the debut EP from Manalishi. It was recorded and produced in their practise room and second home, Islington Mill in Salford, in a DIY fashion by which the band stand for. The 4-track EP contains an eclectic set of songs that are all still closely linked by their grungy, unique feel; ranging from a thrashy/punky feel, as on the leading single from the EP ‘Why Do They Talk To Me’ released in July; to an alt-rock vibe, to a heavy riff based sound, and clearly displays the bands natural knack for creating songs with explosive, spontaneous moments; memorable vocal melodies; and raw, cleverly written lyrics.
