Oakland’s Mwahaha pack plenty of left turns into the electronic-psych-pop of “Rainbow Diamond,” the first single from the group’s self-titled album, out December 6th. The band includes Ross Peacock (ex-Clipd Beaks) along with brothers Nathan and Cyrus Tilton. All three of them used to be in Ned (and yes, I know there are four guys in their press photo).
Other key facts: Mwahaha was recorded with Eli Crews, and features Merrill Garbus of Tune-Yards singing on one song. Also, remixes are forthcoming from Jel and Odd Nosdam.
Mwhaha performs at The Uptown on September 2nd (9pm, Free) with White Cloud and The Horns of Happiness.
