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.
