Listing Detail Tabs

New Zealand’s premier psychedelic soul exotica trio – The Mantarays are pleased to announce the release of the album GARDEN OF LIGHT. Three years in the making, GARDEN OF LIGHT is a surreal journey through exotic landscapes, astral surf pounders and futuristic abstractions. The Mantarays combine early New Orleans R+B, surf, retro organ grooves and exotic Latin rhythms to create a sound that is unique, sophisticated and infectious. GARDEN OF LIGHT follows on from their self-titled 5 Track EP released in 2008, and the 12” vinyl release of the same EP in 2009.

“The Mantarays could be the house band of some 60s Cambodian nightclub” Nick Bollinger
“This debut album has no shortage of muscle and grit, Buy on sight!” Grant Smithies
