True to their shape-shifting character, Mauser promises the next record will flip the script yet again.

“If Dreamers was the ’60s garage pop record, this new one is going to be more along the lines of ’70s power pop,” said Mauser. “I’m constantly changing up what I listen to, and that inspires different styles in the songwriting.”

That new album, set to be recorded by Deerhunter sound engineer Chris Koltay, is slated for release early next year.

“This will be our first time really working with a full-fledged producer, so we’re really looking to expand the sound and add different instrumentation,” says Mauser.

For the time being, Ivarra, Mauser and González are concentrating more on conquering the country one town at a time.

“[The record] helps us get back on the road,” said Ivarra. “That’s where we want to be, out in front of new people playing songs. The idea of playing somewhere new is what drives us. Our tours are, right now, two-and-a-half to three weeks. But almost always we’d like to keep going, and that’s really the goal: playing nightly, sleeping in the seven-passenger van and making enough gas money to make it to the next town.”

Having enlisted the help of a booking agent, the Rich Hands are thinking global. “We have a focus of touring internationally now,” said Ivarra.

In other words, don’t look for these guys to win any polls as “most underrated” any time soon.
