Morakoza - Free Pistonhead 
Morakoza - Free Pistonhead

I've had a lot of music from a lot of Canadian bands over the last year or so - no idea why, I know like 2 Canadians and I've never been to the country of maple syrup and ice hockey - but Morakoza have to be one of the bands that could cross over to the UK scene most successfully. This single, 'Free Pistonhead', is a beautiful mix of Alt-J's off kilter melodies and rhythms, Kasabian's swagger, elements of Madchester and just a snippet of the indie cool of bands like Foals and the Maccabees. The guest hip-hop rhymes from Toronto artist Porter Jae gives the latter part of the song another dimension altogether with a dark edge and a sense of menace. The EP that this single precedes is due out in August and I, for one, can't wait to hear it.
