Cinematic is the word most often used to describe Minneapolis based Marah in the Mainsail. The sound is dark and mysterious at it’s core. With layers upon layers of dynamic turns, from the hopeful highs of “Fox hole” to the guttural darkness of “the Great Beyond’. Between Durry’s true grit voice, and Mercedes tender subtlety, you’ll find a vast array of narrative and stylistic possibilities. With imposing and wild jungle drums, soaring brass horns, growling bass, and shimmering spaghetti western guitars, all blanketed under a sinister vintage organ. This band has all of the tools it needs to paint an epic picture, “We set out to create something new. Something outside the industry standard. Something hard to define, but easy understand. We strive to bring the in depth experience of the cinema and literature to the modern music scene. Please join us in this grand experiment of the arts.”

Temple Wildlife is an indie rock band you can root for. Long nights and entire weekends were spent tracking their first album. Since both Evers and Griffith had to work day jobs, they spent any leftover hours in the studio, meticulously pouring over the EP. Other than the collaboration of a few friends and their instruments, the album was produced and engineered entirely by Griffith and Evers. You can hear influences like Bon Iver, Radiohead, The Killers, Local Natives, and Sigur Rós. You may even notice the homage to Gloria Estefan and Stranger Things.
