Cinematic is the word most often used to describe Minneapolis based Marah in the Mainsail. The sound is dark and mysterious at it’s core. With layers upon layers of dynamic turns, from the hopeful highs of “Fox hole” to the guttural darkness of “the Great Beyond’. Between Durry’s true grit voice, and Mercedes tender subtlety, you’ll find a vast array of narrative and stylistic possibilities. With imposing and wild jungle drums, soaring brass horns, growling bass, and shimmering spaghetti western guitars, all blanketed under a sinister vintage organ. This band has all of the tools it needs to paint an epic picture, “We set out to create something new. Something outside the industry standard. Something hard to define, but easy understand. We strive to bring the in depth experience of the cinema and literature to the modern music scene. Please join us in this grand experiment of the arts.”
Since debuting their full length album “Thaumatrope” in 2015, the band has gained considerable notoriety in the Midwest, and continues to grow their exceptionally loyal fanbase across the country. They later signed with Minneapolis local Last Triumph Records, and released Thaumatrope on 12” vinyl. Poised to launch into the rest of the US and beyond with their brand new album “Bone Crown”, Marah in the Mainsail continues to stand out from the pack, and bring their unique blend of musical influences to the alternative music scene.
Just announced on their YouTube page on June 24, 2018: “We are so honored, nervous and excited to announce we are going full time with Marah in the Mainsail. We’re cutting our ties and changing our lives to facilitate full time creative work…” Don’t miss your chance to see this band in the Cultural Center’s intimate space!
