Manatapu back with brand new single and EP

After having delivered a massive show at Earth Garden this month to open the summer and mark the end of restrictions for mass events, Manatapu are back, this time with the release of a new EP called `Rastaccun`

 This EP features four new songs and is a continuation of the two previously released singles.  The songs were mostly written during the pandemic and are all inspired by the sense of disorientation that most people were feeling and lost state everyone was in.

The EP is accompanied by the release of a video for one of the songs,‘Pitito Man’.  With its fresh upbeat ska rhythms, this seemed like the perfect song to open the summer.  The rest of the songs on the album – ‘Shulama’, ‘Muftieh’ and the title track ‘Rastaccun’ –  will be released as music videos subsequently during this year. 

As usual the EP is multinational featuring lyrics in Maltese, English, Spanish and French, while the genres of music encompass Folk, Ska, Reggae and Punk.

“The listeners will start their journey with a sense of void when they listen to the first few notes of the EP, but as each song progresses the journey will lead to a triumphant ending” promised Tete, one of Manatapu’s vocalists.

The EP was recorded and produced by David Depasquale at Spinesplitter and the accompanying video is made out of footage from various concerts during these last two years shot by Jesse Pass (ROKKR Media) and Petter.

‘Rastaccun’ can be streamed on all digital media platforms like Spotify and iTunes, local radio stations, and on their website.
