Mazes - 'Ores And Minerals'

Maturity is nice, but is it wrong to want the fun times back?

Mazes - 'Ores And Minerals'

6 / 10 Having shaken up their fizzy bottle of adolescent lo-fi tunes on their debut album back in 2011, Mazes have only gone and grown up for album number two. On ‘Ores and Minerals’, they ditch the giddy sounds of their early material and adopt a broader palette. Showing off just how much they’ve learned in the last two years, ‘Jaki’ is the band bragging about their ability to grow a moustache; ‘Sucker Punched’ explores their new-found appreciation of wine; and ‘Significant Bullet’ is Mazes getting really into the news. Maturity is nice, but is it wrong to want the fun times back?
