Norwegian band Mayflower Madame have announced that their debut album ‘Observed in a Dream’ will be released on April 22nd via their own label Night Cult Records in Europe and Custom Made Music in North America. The cold winters of Oslo, where the band was conceived and formed, transpire in their own distinctive blend of post-punk, shoegaze and psychedelia, which has gained them comparisons to the likes of Bauhaus, The Jesus & Mary Chain and Spacemen 3.
The first single to be taken off the album is Weightless is a perfect introduction to the LP. Loud and fuzzy, the track creates a dark and haunting soundcape, as does its video, which has just been shared by the band.Watch the video for Weightless below via YouTube.
The darkness of the music is reflected in the lyrics too, in an album that talks about endings and the fluctuant, passing states of relationships and life itself.
Mayflower Madame are Trond Fagernes (vocals/guitars), Rune Overby (guitars), Petter Marberg (bass) and Ola J. Kyrkjeeide (drums). Additional live and studio member: Kenneth Eknes (synth)
