Formed at the edge of the new millennium, Maserati is as sleek, sexy and sophisticated as the legendary Italian sports car it takes its name from. It is fitting, then, that the band has dragged the glory years of psychedelic arena rock kicking and screaming into the 21st Century, with the pomposity (and vocals) carefully removed. In its place are white hot flashes of light pulsing to an unstoppable rhythm that makes us want to punch air and drive really fast in a car with wings instead of doors.
From a basement in Seattle, Washington, 15 strangers met together in response to an ad welcoming all instruments for experimenting with walls of noise. A chaos then developed into a pattern of what became a five-piece of three guitars, a Rhodes, and drums known as joy wants eternity, the idea being to express their compositions into a sort of narrative psychology, a metamorphosis of both equal parts of subtle and explosive moments. JWE quickly brought their music to live performance, setting the scene with accompanying video projects and other media.
