Mamalarky is down to water your houseplants while you're out of town and plot an elaborate revenge on your high school bully. Mamalarky is a campfire song for American Idol rejects and a somber soundtrack for the months leading up to your next breakup. They are exactly what you would expect to see in an increasingly sentient robot's dream journal.
Mamalarky started in Austin, TX and now resides in Los Angeles. The band combines doe-eyed vocal melodies, cerebral jazz keys, dynamic finger-picked guitar, ebullient bass lines, and hard hitting drums to create an intoxicating elixir, entirely their own.
The band's debut EP, Fundamental Thrive Hive, released May of 2018. The 4 tracks explore the naivety of first love, lasting bonds found in musical family, and inspired discussions born from long car rides.
The band has navigated the industry completely independently so far, making this first release particularly impressive for, making this first release particularly impressive for the group of self starters. From major venues to overflowing college houses, the band revels in the joy of every live performance and looks forward to what's to come in 2019.
