Door to Amaze

Mantracoda

Mantracoda's latest offering 'Door to Amaze', is a sonic journey, taking the listener/s through a vast myriad of musical styles, influences & soundscapes - that not only inspire, but also create a unique and honest soundtrack for all to savour & enjoy!!

Mantracoda's album 'Door to Amaze' truly is like opening up a sonic door into a completely different time and space, with the sound of crashing waves, recorded on location at one of South Australia's most legendary surf beaches, into the weaving melodies, haunting lead, lilting flute and tribal riffs that cradle the honest story-telling resonance of the vocals. From the beginning you enter into a journey that takes you through a vast array of emotions and musical styles that remain grounded in their humble, yet often complex root systems that feed the rest of the sonic landscapes. Each song tells a different story, from freedom - to release, heart-break - to coming back to one, challenges - to resolution, uncertainty - to positive affirmation and a state of grace. Each song very much encapsulates a unique time and space and the overall flow of the album keeps the listener guessing and wanting more. With some of the songs evolving over years of musical and emotional journeying, 'Door to Amaze' really is an album that Mantracoda is proud of and honoured to have recorded. With the help of Paul Dangerfield from the Dale Street Studios in Port Adelaide, Andrew Edgson from Studios 301 in NSW and Disk Edits in Adelaide, Jake Brookes and Andrea Murray from Mantracoda were able to realize their dreams and bring their creation to the people for all to experience and enjoy. Together they created all of the instrumentation and artwork and with the help of 'session' drummer, Dave McGuire - they have truly produced a body of work that will stand the test of time...

Summersong

Mantracoda

Summersong is a very powerful composition that takes the audience on an incredible emotional journey

Summersong was written on the road when Mantracoda was touring up the West Coast of Australia. It encapsulates the journey and all of the incredible coastal locations and towns that they passed through. It is a song that expresses the liberating freedom of packing up your car and hitting the road with love and adventure in your heart, off into the unknown. Truly an amazing and eternal song in so many humble yet powerful ways, keeping with Mantracoda's natural, roots-based, alternative style of music. Fly on...

Holly

Mantracoda

Holly is a celebration of life and love for all to enjoy

Holly was written as a celebration of love. The birds at the start of the song were recorded at Swan Reach in Andrea's legendary family shack on the river Murray. The flute dances on the wind like the birds and the melody is accessible to all. We hope you Enjoy :)

Jet Black Light

Mantracoda

This track is the latest single off their soon to be released EP entitled 'Soundunes'. All of the instrumentation was composed, recorded and performed by Jake Brookes, Andrea Murray & Nesta using a variety of instruments to create a unique & awesome vibe.

MANTRACODA is incredibly excited to bring the first single off their latest EP to the Global Arena. Currently working on their album entitled 'SOUNDUNES', the song 'Jet Black Light' is really unique in the sense that it was originally written as a jazz/fusion song. It wasn't until Jake spent time in WA that the song morphed into what it is today. When Andrea came into the fold with her unique flute playing and percussive knowledge, the song changed again. What you hear at the start of the song is a road-train that they recorded late at night as they were traveling across the Nullarbor Plain late last year on their first musical tour together. Rock On...

Songbook

Mantracoda

This is a musical journey that myself, the Founder of MANTRACODA & legendary Producer, Engineer and musician/composer Harvey Welsh created for everyone to experience for themselves. Our influences and styles are vast & we hope you all enjoy :)

Songbook was recorded in Canberra with the help and guidance of musician/producer Harvey Welsh. After returning from a European tour I had the opportunity to work with Harvey in his humble studio and after three months of composing and recording, Songbook emerged and was subsequently featured in Europe and America by A&R man Norman McCourt at Midem, France and SXSW, Austin Texas. The album is really a musical journey that crosses many different styles and all of the instrumentation that we put behind the predominantly acoustic tracks reflects the various moods of the music and creates a wonderful sonic landscape for the listener to explore and enjoy. I hope that people get inspiration from the sincerity and honesty of the music that encapsulates many years of personal experiences. For on a journey we go and flow and as the miles pass we start to know... Peace
