It’s been 17 years since Mazzy Star released an album, and for those of us that used to rely on a Mazzy Star/Portishead playlist to seal the deal it’s been a long, long drought. Now, not only is the reclusive duo set to release Seasons of Your Day, they’re also gearing up for a live tour. Get your oh, so moody mood on by listening to the whole amazing album, but I will personally clock the first fool to bust out a puka shell necklace or Yagi shorts.
From their new album Wicked Waltham here’s the pop band with a throwback sound Waltham with “Stand and Fight” which conjures memories of “You’re the Best” and “Eye of the Tiger,” and, if you believe the band, was inspired by the Rocky movies to such an extent that if you press play at the start of Round 3 in Rocky III it synchs up perfectly. Thanks to Eric for the heads up!
