Moving from Gang Of Four, The Sound, Bauhaus, Joy Division to Liaisons Dangereuses, Souxie And The Banshees and Nitzer Ebb. Of course, there will be some The Cure tunes, too.
Norwegian band Mayflower Madame are purveyors of darkly inflected post-punk swathed in shimmering psychedelia. Their debut album, *Observed in a Dream*, was released in 2016 and received rave reviews. Through eight tracks of psych-theatrical ingenuity, shady shoegaze and 1980s dark romanticism, the album conveyed the wintry feeling of their home country – icy and gloomy, haunting and majestic. Since then the band has toured both in Europe and North America. They have also shared the stage with bands like Killing Joke, Crystal Stilts, Night Beats, La Femme, Psychic Ills and Moon Duo, which further gives you an idea of their sonic landscape.
Mayflower Madame's newest release - "Premonition" EP (co-released by German label Black Verb Records) - was launched in May 2018 in conjunction with a 10-date U.S. tour. They are currently recording their second album which is expected to come out in spring 2019.
"If ‘Premonition‘ is the sound of Judgement Day then I’ll welcome the world’s end with open ears and a big grin on my face." - Turn Up The Volume
"A magnificent debut that offers an irresistible musical essence of Nordic Noir." – Louder Than War
"Their sneering vocals and wickedly distorted guitar riffs are pure Jesus & Mary Chain, the ominous, echo-drenched atmospherics recall Sisters of Mercy, and the overall and very palpable sense of fear and dread harken back to Faith-era Robert Smith." - BlackBook
"Das Lieblingskind von Post-Punk und Neo-Psychedelia." (8/10) - Classic Rock Magazin
"Mit 'Observed in a Dream' veröffentlichen die Norweger von Mayflower Madame eine Shoegaze/Dark-Wave-Perle, wie man sie heute nur noch selten findet." - Popmonitor
"Schaurig-schöner Dark Wave und atmosphärische Psychedelic, der auch noch hervorragend klingt." (12/15) - Musikreviews
