This afternoon, we’d like to present to you your daily dose of beautiful (because lord knows we need it this week): Oakland’s Mare Island.
Including members from local legends past like The Velvet Teen and The New Trust, Mare Island is a brand-new band that’s starting strong. Their first EP, due in January of next year, is a gorgeous journey through soft and loud, dark and light.
Their first video definitely highlights the soft and light side of their work: “Anon” is a collection of misty hillsides, drives through the redwoods, serene waves washing on the shore, and cozy sweaters you’ll wish you were wearing right now.
You can listen to the track on SoundCloud here.
Having just recently played their very first show at Starline Social Club this week, they’re moving on to their second-ever show at Bottom of the Hill this Sunday. Come find the comfort you seek in Mare Island.
