From Only Lovers Records:
Mayflower Madame is a psychedelic post-punk band from Oslo, Norway. TheirÂ debut LPÂ Â«Observed in a DreamÂ»Â (2016) earned them excellent reviews and tours in both North America and Europe. Through eight tracks of psych-theatrical ingenuity, shady shoegaze and 1980s dark romanticism, the album conveyedÂ the wintry feeling of their home countryÂ â€“Â icy and gloomy, haunting and majestic.
In conjunction with a 10-date U.S. tour in May 2018, Mayflower Madame released the EPÂ Â«PremonitionÂ», a 4-track collection of apocalyptic love songs that also turned out to be a favorite among music bloggers. Since then the band has done mini-tours and festivals in France, Germany, UK and Eastern Europe in between recording sessions for their second LP.Â
Over the past years, Mayflower Madame has shared the stage with bands like Killing Joke, Moon Duo, Night Beats, Psychic Ills, Froth, The Underground Youth, Crocodiles, Cosmonauts and La Femme, which further might give you an indication of their sonic landscape.Â
Their long-awaited second LP “Prepared For A Nightmare” sees the band delving even deeper into their own distinctive blend of psych-noir and post-punk while also including elements of shoegaze and noise-rock. It will be released worldwide March 27th 2020 via their main label Only Lovers Records (France) in collaboration with Little Cloud Records (USA) and Icy Cold Records (France).Â
