Though Scary Mansion is surely the world’s only thunderstick/bass/drums rock
trio, the band is most notable for its rare mix of sentimental melody and rocky
noise, often likened to Weezer and The Pixies. Hayes’s lyrics embody the alienated
cleverness of Morrissey or Stephen Merritt.
Leah Hayes has collaborated with many other great musicians. She sang a duet
with TV On the Radio on “Snakes and Martyrs” from their acclaimed “Return to
Cookie Mountain” album and toured with TV On the Radio’s Kyp Malone. One of
Hayes’s first musical projects was noise-rock duo Satan’s Fingers with David Ivar
of Herman Dune fame.
“Every Joke Is Half the Truth”, Hayes’s debut album, came out in 2008 on Zum
Records (in the US), and Talitres Records in Europe.
