Maneka – ‘Is You Is’ – A story through Grunge and Punk rock

Is You Is‘ comes via NYC rock label Exploding In Sound Records, and is the solo project of Devin McKnight (previously of Speedy Ortiz, Grass Is Green) who fronts the Brooklyn trio.

A wide range of influences creep into the 8 tracks on Maneka‘s debut album. Abrasive punk joins arms with thoughtful grunge to present a perfect working merge of styles.

The naming and theme of the record explore Devin McKnight‘s struggle with racial identity within the indie/punk scene across the U.S.
