Barcelona, Spain based psychedelic rock trio Maragda premiere a video for their new single »The Reckless«. This is the first single taken from the band’s upcoming live EP, »The Reckless / Evil Seed«, set to release on June 2nd, 2023 via Spinda Records and Nafra Records. The new EP includes two new songs recorded live in one morning just before their first EU tour started in 2022.
This set was recorded and filmed at Cal Gravat, the headquarters of Maragda and their own label Nafra Records. »The Reckless« is a song about a perturbated individual who could be any of us.

One year after the release of their self-titled debut album and just before heading to their first ever European tour, the psychedelic rock band Maragda decided to record a live session to capture their most direct sound and all the energy that the band had been offering on those live shows in early days.
The result is a live EP containing two brand new songs in which the trio formed by Guillem (guitars, vocals), Xavi (drums, vocals) and Marçal (bass, vocals) shows us two different visions of what they understand by psychedelia. Whilst in »The Reckless« they mix elements of garage rock and heavy psych to tell the story of a perturbated individual who could be any of us; in »Evil Seed« they change to modern psychedelia with a more classic riff to speak about someone who turns into a dead tree after eating a seed.
The live sessions »The Reckless / Evil Seed« was recorded at Cal Gravat, in an outdoor environtment, on 6th November 2022 by Martí and Marc G. (video) Marçal S. and Joan R. (audio); then mixed and mastered by Marçal Itarte. It’s coming out on 2nd June on both video and a limited edition of 300 seven inches vinyl records through the collaboration of Spanish indie labels Spinda Records and Nafra Records. Pre-order available from 5th May.
