REVIEW: Mantras – ‘Boulevard’ & ‘We’re Alive’


Mantras are a four-piece electronic rock band based in Brighton. This weekend they performed twice at The Great Escape Festival 2015 (14th-16th May) as part of the Alternative Escape programme. They’ve recently played shows in London, and have dates lined up for Paris in July. Mantras are gaining momentum and with singles like ‘Boulevard’, it’s easy to see why.

‘Boulevard’ features heavy guitar-riffs, strong, anthem-like vocals, and sturdy drum beats. Their relatable lyrics on b-side track ‘We’re Alive’, will remain in listener’s heads long after the music’s finished playing.

If upcoming single ‘Phantasy’ is as catchy and chant-worthy as the tracks on ‘Boulevard’, listeners are in for serious rock satisfaction. Listen below:
