Oakland's Mwahaha is comprised of former Clipd Beaks member Ross Peacock and brothers Nathan and Cyrus Tilton of Bay Area cult band Ned. The name suggests evil plots and the music delivers a weird darkness of lasers and menacing drum machine glitches. On our debut “Poinsettia” the Mwahaha evildoers conceive a distorted boss level intro before finding a comfort zone that hints at TV On The Radio in dance-rock mode. As layers of effects begin fuggin' with the program, Mwahaha settle into sinister sci-fi static and radar blip funk to keep us on our toes.
Mwahaha's self-titled debut album is out Decemeber 6 on Mwahaha Music.
