Mayflower Madame reveal new track ‘Self-Seer’

Mayflower Madame

Norwegian band Mayflower Madame release their debut album ‘Observed in a Dream’ on April 22nd via their own label Night Cult Records in Europe and Custom Made Music in North America.

The last track the band will share before their debut album comes out is Self-Seer, which is partly inspired by the art of their fellow countryman Edvard Munch. Take a listen to the dark and feverish tale about obsession, escapism and longing via Soundcloud below.


Since releasing their debut ‘Into the Haze’ EP in 2013, Mayflower Madame have been invited to play at two of the biggest festivals in Norway (Norwegian Wood and Oyafestivalen) and have supported some of the most prominent bands in the flourishing ‘neo-psychedelic movement’ such as Night Beats, Crystal Stilts, Disappears, Moon Duo, Crocodiles and La Femme.

Thematically, the album is about endings and the fluctuating, passing states of relationships and life itself. From the smouldering serenity of Confusion Hill through the feverish Lovesick and the vivid Weightless to the closing Forever / The End of Everything, the album reveals different stages of a partly subconscious journey and its accompanying feelings of obsession, anxiety, instability and longing.

The cold Oslo winters have influenced their distinctive blend of post-punk, shoegaze and psychedelia, gaining them comparisons to the likes of Bauhaus, The Jesus & Mary Chain and Spacemen 3.
