Mancana has made their debut with the infectiously catchy Psych Pop Rock Earworm “Living a Lie”

Manchester-based Alt Rock newcomer Mancana dropped their debut single “Living a Lie” on January 13th. The sticky-sweet soulful Americana-inspired hit affirmed just how lacking the airwaves are when it comes to naturalistically good-vibe feats of Rock. Mancana along with a whole host of other deftly talented artists more than made up for the shortfall.

The constantly evolving rhythms seamlessly sweep across a diverse tonal palette. From striking cutting Blues progressions to effervescent Jangle Pop to the euphoric ringing warmth of Psych Pop. Their sweet harmonic tones and infectiously catchy melodies transformed Living a Lie into one of the most welcome earworms we’ve heard in a long time. Living a Lie drips with 60s Psych Pop/Garage Rock nostalgia, but with Mancana’s personal charm, there’s no better revival to aurally throw yourself back in time with.

Additionally, with a bio like “A casual northern chancer with a penchant for the rock/country/Americana sound. Good honest & wholesome, like your Nan’s Sunday roast.” How could we not instantly become enamoured by Mancana?

You can check out Living a Lie along with the B-side single “CalifornIA” for yourselves by heading over to Apple Music or Spotify now.
