Mauno like to label their own sonic personality as ‘weird pop-rock’, which is apparently a bi-product of calling Nova Scotia home; a place where not a lot happens and when it does, it happens very slowly. According to frontman Nick Everett “Halifax is a weird town. At times it’s really boring, which I find useful for writing songs not being distracted” On the outfit’s new record ‘Really Well’ the feeling of battling boredom, allowing the mind to wander and the notion of daydreaming are rife; it’s a hazy album that’s constructed on abstract textures, with songs that sound more like jams rather than fully formed tracks.(Northern Transmissions)
