Manalishi band photo

Manalishi band photoManchester’s very own frenetic punk/grunge/alternative trio, Manalishi, debut their powerful brand-new single, Zipper Mouth, exclusively on Louder Than War.

A fast and furious ball of ferocity and energy, Zipper Mouth hits you for six, batters you throughout and leaves you reeling at the end of its sub-2-minute entirety.

A combination of 90’s grunge/punk a la Nirvana/Therapy? and noughties punk/noise merchants such as Gallows, the urgent full-on aural assault has a melodic slant and an unmistakable message: all you motormouth know-it-all’s – SHUT YOUR MOUTHS.

Manalishi are:

Dom Strett: Lead vocals/guitars

Josh Urpi: Bass

Luke Moloney: Drums
