The psychedelic rock band shows a gentler, sunnier side on this life-affirming acoustic track.
After touring with the likes of Black Sabbath and the Pixies as two thirds of the mainstream rock band Reignwolf, David T. Rapaport (aka STITCX) and Joseph Braley started working on new, much different material. Combining classic psychedelic rock with distinct Middle Eastern grooves, the pair recruited singerKatie Blackstock, and the end result is the trio Maszer, whose debut EP will be released in December.
The new track "Passers By" showcases the more contemplative side of the band, its light, airy, acoustic arrangement carried by Blackstock's lilting singing. "The song is very special for us," the band says. "We write it to serve as a reminder that our time is limited and everyone is struggling with something. We’re all just passing through together."
