Successful London club night Ja Ja Ja - a Nordic Affair wraps it up for the summer with Maribel on the roster.
Late May sees club night Ja Ja Ja returning to the Lexington, wrapping it up for the summer with Oslo outfit Maribel on the line up.
Maribel, whose critically-acclaimed, shoegazing debut album 'Aesthetics' in 2009 blended established their ability to "soundtrack the most hallucinogenic dream or hellish nightmare at the flick of a switch” (Drowned in Sound). Their follow-up on Splendour took inspiration from classic film scores by Barry, Mancini and Morricone, revealing dark, slow-burning, atmospheric dream-pop.
The critically acclaimed Oslo four-piece Maribel have resurfaced with the release of second album 'Reveries' on Oslo-based label Splendour. Blending shoegaze and dream-pop with cinematic influences, maribel create dark, distorted pop.The tracks are guided by the breathy siren call of their newly added East-german lead singer Rebekka Marstein. As female vocals intertwine with those of songwriter/ lead guitarist Pål Espen Kapelrud, one is likely to recall the oft-referenced my bloody valentine or the raveonettes.
