Denver breakout band The Mazlows is back, following up the momentous success of their anthemic single “Leaving Town” with a full-length debut album. Titled “Community Locker”, it’s a self-made record filled to the brim with obsession-worthy punk-pop hits.
“The meaning around the title Community Locker bends around our nostalgia for our younger selves and coming to terms with adulthood,” Nate Hout (vocals, guitar) explained. “In high school, we had the notorious ‘Community Locker’ that anyone could open. I would call it half senior prank, half social experiment.”
A decade later, that locker has become the inspiration for a relentlessly addictive record. As hinted at in the title, Community Locker is as equally tinged with memoirs of growing up as it is with humor, a balance that can be found perfectly on “Breakfast Epiphanies.” “The song takes you on this wild journey as each section crescendos into the next,” said Nate. “Audrey Hepburn would be proud.”
