Marah in the Mainsail will be perfroming at Musica with Northern Whale and The Common Wealth!

Cinematic is the word most often used to describe Marah in the Mainsail's sound. Precise yet primitive jungle drums set the stage for the eclectic and powerful ensemble to sweep you away into their haunting world. Like oil and water, Durry's gravel voice alongside Mariah Mercedes's crystal clarity form a stirring, yet beautiful contrast. All being thrusted foreword by aggressive percussion, growling bass, and soaring brass. Their lyrics paint a thrilling picture of monsters and ghosts, murderers and thieves, love and guilt, and everything in between.

After releasing 4 EPs from 2011-2013, releasing their first full-length LP in 2015, and releasing their most successful single to date in 2016, Northern Whale has been on a roll since their inception back in 2008 with an average age of just 13. As far as Northern Whale’s musical style, it has evolved and matured just as the band members have themselves. The instrumentation is diverse and creative, with lyrics much deeper and thought provoking that can strike a chord on any average music goer’s heartstrings.

With arrangements that include everything from electric & classical guitar to brass, cellos, mellotron, and Afro-Cuban percussion, The Victory Garden amplifies The Commonwealth's place in the Midwest as a loud, chamber-pop band. It's a cinematic, haunting, and aggressive sound that pulls from The National and Radiohead as much as Led Zeppelin and Cream.
