Mara Falls represents a journey, a vehicle to liberation, a joyride with the breaks cut.
"The Smashing Pumpkins meets Depeche Mode, set to a yet to be made David Lynch movie" .
"Fred Perry Subculture - Top of the 'Coventry Sound - Ten bands you need to hear NOW!' list" .
"Recombinant parts of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club’s all-black nihilism."
Mara Falls burst on the scene in 2017. Immediately championed by the likes of BBC Introducing, Amazing Radio and TouchFM, Mara Falls took their frenetic live show to stages across the UK. Highlights including O2 Academy Islington Headline show and supporting Republica, and Magic Wands.
‘Mara Falls are the obsidian in the rough.’
First formed in Coventry by guitarist and producer Peter Black, Mara Falls melds stadium worthy anthems with a more intimate, deeper than the surface, writing style. A midnight move to Paris, led Pete to bassist Lola Rose, with her driving bass lines. The foundations of Mara Falls were set. Setting infectious hooks to an expansive electronic backdrop, the group was completed a year later, back in the UK, by hard-hitting drummer, Peter Szots. With Peter Black’s brooding guitar tones and cutthroat vocals, the amalgamation of the three individuals formed a sum greater than its parts; Mara Falls.
Mid 2018 saw Mara Falls recruit a fourth member, guitarist Joe Burditt, to add a further rawness to their live show.
‘With festival-worthy choruses and monopolising beats, Mara Falls electric live show emanates a sexuality that can only be backed up by the members’ visual aesthetic.’
Mara Falls are currently shaking up the Coventry music scene, by collaborating with other local bands, creatives, and visual artists by hosting nights in warehouse spaces around the city. @WAREHOUSE_COV
