The Mammals PR 2018 800.jpg

The Mammals' brand new single "Make It True" bursts with harmonies, harmonica, and jangling guitars with hints of the Byrds, Fleet Foxes, and something distinctly "Mammalian." It's the opening track on the band's re-emergent album 'Sunshiner' which comes out on April 20th via Humble Abode Music.

There's a palpable hope on this track, written by banjo/guitar wordsmith Mike Merenda. It's sung as a duet with fiddler/vocalist Ruth Ungar and features the driving energy of Konrad Meissner on drums, Jacob Silver on bass, Ken Maiuri on 12-string and the soaring pedal steel of Charlie Rose. As the chorus says, "We some days sing the blues, some days sing those harmonies too, yeah we do, and we'll one day sing those words that will make it true."

'Sunshiner' is available for PRE-ORDER HERE.
