Drawing upon the joys and heartaches of their own lived experiences, Heavy Hinges craft impassioned and dynamic songs that fluidly migrate from jubilant to heartbroken and back again. With a dark and soulful longing, Mayalou Banatwala’s stirring vocals adorn textured and memorable songs with an authenticity that is both infectious and disarming. With roots that extend deep into the time-honored traditions of rock & roll, r&b, and blues, Heavy Hinges’ mosaic of influence spans generations, culminating in an earthy and spirited sound that is deeply reverent to the past...and compellingly relevant to the present. The band's catalog has grown to include four acclaimed releases to date; Mean Old City, Cause a Scene, Lonely, and Live at Radio Artifact, a performance captured in an eerily empty night club, shut down during the covid pandemic. As the band finishes work on their latest set of recordings, they continue to follow their musical instincts as they pursue their unique journey as an emerging American band.
