Virginia-based musician Haisai Maché has shared a new EP called Mr. Hunchback. Featuring versatile, vivid production and engaging, catchy vocals that draw influence from an eclectic variety of genres including dance music, hip-hop, alt-pop and more, Maché delivers a series of 4-tracks that are expansive, textural, and infectious.
The title track “Mr. Hunchback” opens the EP with a catchy, bright instrumental that blurs the line between house, pop, and hip-hop. Here, lively synths and warm guitars drift atop addictive, pumping percussion, making it difficult for the listener to sit still. Maché comes through with a series of engaging verses, and caps them off with a vivid hook atop the bright instrumentation. Next, “World Cup” provides an airy, layered soundscape with atmospheric reversed keys that feel dream-like, underscored by a pumping rhythm section. He delivers a series of equally infectious melodies that meld smoothly with the song’s buoyant production.
“Closure” makes for a dynamic offering with watery keyboards contrasting with crisp, locked-in drums in an engaging fashion. Atop the vivid soundscape, Maché delivers a smooth vocal performance that further brightens the song’s sound. The EP closes with “Do You Like My Love?”, a vital track that mixes character-rich, electronic-tinged production with energized vocals to make for a replay-able offering.
The latest from Virginia-based artist Haisai Maché, Mr. Hunchback is his latest genre-blending offering that draws from a wide range of genres including pop, hip-hop, dance music, and more.
