After a period of searching for a new sound and experimenting with different members, Manyana settled on their current lineup of O'Rourke and Sheehy, becoming a purely recording based project in the process. They released their second EP 'I Am Rusting' in 2017, which would be the true beginning of the bands explorative work.
Manyana are currently working on their debut album and released the first part of this in February of 2019, the single '1ofmy.' This was incredibly well received by critics and also became the duos first song to get radio play, as well as making it onto numerous reputable Spotify playlists.
" Without any sense (or need) of being catchy, '1ofmy' has a strange effect of sitting in your head for a good time afterwards, "
"This absorbing number immerses you in a deeply ambient electronic soundscape filled with passionate rich tones and an extremely mesmerising and tangible sound"
The next part of their album they released was the two-part ethereal epic 'There's Glasses Need Collecting the Wide World Over,' in June 2019. Coming in at over 20 minutes long, this suite showcases the massively ambitious nature of the bands current work.
