Psych Noir Rockers MAYFLOWER MADAME Dropped Lead Single From New Upcoming Album – Here’s ‘VULTURES’…

Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

30 January 2020


Who: A band from Norway known for its signature mesh of post-punk, dark psychedelia, shoegaze and indie rock. For fans of The Soft Moon, Joy Division, The Black Angels, Jesus & Mary Chain, Psychic Ills, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and The Velvet Underground

Track: VULTURES – the lead single from their second LP, titled ‘Prepared For A Nightmare‘, out next month via Only Lover Records. The song “is about desire, gluttony and vanity, 
both on a personal level and as a general symptom of the excesses of modern society. However, there’s a sense of both doom and revival in there. It’s partly inspired by the art of George Grosz and Hieronymus Bosch.”

Score: After a gloomy psych guitar intro this inflammable crackerjack turns immediately into a propelled rocker with a hammering beat, a burning force, a tenebrous tension and a cutting chorus. Midway the tempo goes down shortly for a sparky guitar/bass duet, but the pulsating drum dynamism pushes the darksome commotion back to its swirling pace. Top!

MAYFLOWER MADAME – Psych-Noir Foursome Drops Ominous Title Track Of New ‘PREMONITION’ EP…

Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

11 May 2018


Who: The band “formed in Oslo in 2011. They started rehearsing in a desolate industrial building they shared with a car wash company. Amidst the gritty surroundings, their hazy, smoke-laden sound seemed to be conceived naturally and the band soon recorded a four-
track demo. Debut album ‘Observed in a Dream‘ finally arrived in 2016. The album proved
to be well worth the wait and its dazzling display of darkly inflected post-punk swathed in shimmering psychedelia earned them rave reviews. Since then, the band has toured both
in the U.K./Europe and North America.”


Score: If ‘Premonition‘ is the sound of Judgement Day than I’ll welcome the world’s
end with open ears and a big grin on my face. Its sonic gloominess is just perfect
for humankind to go down with an electrifying big bang. As this troubled planet will
destroy itself sooner or later I recommend these four Norwegian horsemen of the Apocalypse to be our Armageddon Orchestra. Capture the ominous beauty of their
hellish anthem and its devastating images right here…
