Manic are :
Manic's music has a throbbing pulse, and a sharp current of energy runs through it. But the music is as hooky as it is angular and smart. Their songs are expansive, with lots of textures and layers. Musically, Manic admit they are not here to cater or to kowtow to radio. They just want to write songs with plenty of depth, breadth and scope, songs that they can replicate live. "We are a fairly tech-heavy band," says Zane Smythe (guitar), shedding light on his band's sound. "We use a lot of gear. Our bassist has a keyboard. Our drummer has a keyboard next to him. I have a keyboard. We have a laptop, guitar, and vocal effects, etc, so the music is on the technical side. We're big fans of stuff that's sparse but not thin. When we record, we throw everything into the pot and start reducing, and what's left is what we play live. We're fans of music that is thick. We're not pretentious, but we think we do a really good job at representing ourselves and our songs when we play them live."
Signed by Fontana, Manic released their first EP "Floor Boards" on Jan.23rd 2007.
