Melbourne 4 piece Mares have just released their brand new single Aeroplane Mode - the first glimpse of their upcoming debut album Wherewithal (out June 1, 2018). Mares make the kind of music you’ll want to put on at dusk on a road trip through expansive landscapes.
They play with a distinct connection to their Australian context, with bold vocals and picturesque sounds that teeter between light and dark, wonder and discontent. Inspired by the music of Rowland S Howard, PJ Harvey and The Triffids, Mares fuse the restlessness of inner-city Melbourne with imagery of oceans and rural bush-scapes.
Their driving bass, arching guitars, and intricate pace offer a glimpse into the expansion that exists outside of the city, in open landscapes.
Find them on Bandcamp.
