The best kept secret in music

Rising Florida superstars bring alt-rock intensity to the stadium rock sounds of U2 and Coldplay. This young quartet has an eye for detail that most bands simply cannot conceive. Rather than getting lost in the minutiae, Mashlin blasts out an anthem.

“Melodic musical magicians designing a uniquely captivating sound.” - Jason Tate


"themusicedge.com"

“Mashlin’s, Pushing Through The Seasons rises with an energy that can only be described as drive…Everything is placed precisely, creating a balance that is difficult for many to achieve, Mashlin has already accomplished this on their remarkable first try.” - Kiki Alexander


"Orlando Weekly"

“What's not to love about Mashlin? They make big, swooning pop music that's unafraid to be smart. They recast emo sonics into acceptable launching points for something completely different and way more mature. This is one of those bands I love to see coming from Orlando: creative, accessible and more interested in quality of creation than in quantity sold…” - Jason Ferguson

“Textured…organic…powerful, yet poignant. This reminds me of the first time I heard Nada Surf ten years ago… and I haven’t heard anyone else ever really capture that sound. Well, until now.” - Puckett


"leakmob.com"

"…Mashlin has been a good thing just waiting to happen for quite some time. Well, the wait is almost over. With their new album, ‘Pushing Through The Seasons,’ packing strong vocals backed by extremely talented musicians and a US tour in the works......they will soon step-up to take over. Brace yourself because Mashlin’s presence is not only going to shine - it will most likely be blinding." - Emily Murray


"smother.net"

“…They’ll never starve in the lack of fans because when you have this good of a grasp on how to write songs the lambs are never too far behind…” - J-Sin


"upbeetmusic.com"

“Songs like the slow waltz "Violet", the heartfelt rock of "Cold Kiss of a Liar", or the beautiful confessional of "Letter to a Mentor" show the sweet vocal range and the enlightening atmospherics of a band that deserves to be heard and considered as a force all its own…” - Andres Carrera


"Popstar! Magazine"

"Mashlin is a group of guys whose music is similar to Coldplay or Radiohead. Heavy on melodies and melancholy, Mashlin makes memorable music - their indie rock rocks!" - Matthew Rettenmund


"entertainmentworld.us"

Here's a CD from a four piece group of guys that is simply magical (pretty ironic that the guys happen to hail from the house of Mickey Mouse, Orlando, FL). These eleven songs are created from and revolve around life experiences and pure emotion. "The Shore" has echoing and catchy lyrics as well as music that will whisk you away. Guitar riffs are also present and intense which fits perfect with some pounding drums. "66 Books Of Cleansing" has some strings and is pure bliss powered by the deep lyrics spoken in a soft tone. "Cold Kiss Of A Liar" uses some interesting music approaches and riveting lyrics with an intense hook. Tempo changes add flare to this already awesome track. A nice change of pace CD to have in your collection, it offers a plethora of musical variations. - Geoffrey Dellinger

Bio

When you think about Orlando, FL, you most likely picture a cherubic mouse with big ears and white gloves, but instead of a magic kingdom, you will soon associate Orlando with the majestically melodic band Mashlin. Mashlin is Aaron Harvey (vocals, guitar), Joe Knipp (guitar), Glen Wilson (bass), and Jason Burrows (drums). In 2004, the band was introduced to Brad Fischetti, owner of One Eleven Records, by their friends and label mates Rory.

On May 10, 2005 One Eleven released Mashlin's debut album Pushing through the Seasons, produced by Chris Fudurich (Nada Surf, Rx Bandits). "Working with Chris was great," says Harvey. "He left most of the creative decisions up to us and helped us bring more texture and instrumentation to the songs."

Mashlin took their time writing each track for the album. “Our writing process is always evolving and taking on new and different forms,” says Knipp. “On this album, Aaron would bring the song’s foundation and we would all work together on the structure, feels and details.”

In Pushing through the Seasons, Mashlin has demonstrated the art of blending striking guitars with billowing vocals to create an unforgettably dulcet recording. Their dreamy intensity has elicited comparisons to Coldplay and Muse, while the band cites Radiohead, Smashing Pumpkins, Nirvana, and the Foo Fighters as major influences. Although the four members are in their early twenties, they have translated their great experiences into 11 songs of undulating emotions. "Lyrically, it's about love and cynicism, the quest for spirituality, and the act of being selfless in a self-absorbed culture," says Harvey.

Mashlin is enchanting fans with their intricate melodies and unique interpretation of indie pop rock. Their album, Pushing through the Seasons, will undoubtedly evoke feelings of idyll and nostalgia. So once you've given up on trying to figure out what kind of animal that goofy character is, sing a different fan club tune to M-A-S-H-L-I-N.
