Maw Paw

Secret Music


Maw Paw’s Secret Music is a blend of progressive rock and indie melodies. It teeters between bright and spooky, with elements of heavy, down-tempo passages that induce headbanging, sandwiched between beautiful harmonies and clear, arpeggiated guitar work. Justin Endler’s vocals take a consonant heavy approach, adding a bassy quality; the blend of female and male vocals add intrigue, serving as an extra set of instruments outside of the guitar, bass, drums and tenor saxophone. It’s an impressive use of unique rhythmic choices and clever guitar riffs and licks that make for a sonically big display in a genre that doesn’t have an enormous presence in Pittsburgh.
