Halifax band Mauno share the first single from their forthcoming LP in advance of North American tour.
Mauno are getting ready to celebrate the release of their third full-length album with an extensive North American tour that begins with a performance in Fredericton on June 6 at The Capital.
In advance of the full album and the start of the tour, Mauno have shared the album’s first track, Really, Really.
Written by the group’s Eliza Niemi before she moved to Germany two summers ago, Really Really is about the fear of losing touch with friends and family who define your identity, and the realization that geographical distance doesn’t have to result in that.
The song explores exhaustion and perseverance when faced with a seemingly endless and inconsequential task. Mauno’s very real and intensive exercise serves as a fitting way to represent this – placing the band in an arduous video shoot that pushed them to their physical limit. The video’s accompanying visuals (directed by Max Taeuschel) ultimately posits that sometimes, when engaging in an absurd and terrible cycle, it’s best to simply stop.
