As the band itself states:
"Hi Malaya is greek band based in Volos. It's a power trio (guitar, bass, drums), since 2015. Inspired by rock, surf, and mediterranean music."
Two years after their first demo release they are back with their debut album "ZZ and the Dictators". And it seems that those 2 years Hi Malaya have been working hard for this debut which is consisted of 9 instrumental tracks with a total duration of 54 minutes!
The way this album flows is remarkable and I've got the impression that is going to sound very alluring to a quite wide audience. Embedding a big variety of their influences Hi Malaya managed to create a very easily listenable and highly enjoyable album without making any 'discounts' on quality of their compositions.
Being a very lively and vibrant mixture of heavy rock, post-rock and surf with Hi Malaya's particular mediterranean style it definitely qualifies as one of the most suitable soundtracks for the hot summer days… and nights.
- Release Date: 8 May 2018
