Marah In The Mainsail
Marah In The Mainsail
Cinematic is the word most often used to describe 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."

Visual artists carefully blend primary colours to varying degrees, producing intriguing shades of depth and texture. By mixing various amounts of Fleet Foxes, St. Vincent, Gorillaz, and Radiohead, NC musicians Albert Strawn and Derrick J. Hines present their own musical shades in their sophomore release, On The Brink Of Life. The pair recorded with Andy LeMaster (Bright Eyes, Azure Ray) in Athens, GA, and the record was mastered by Joe Lambert (Animal Collective, Tall Tall Trees, The Revenant OST, Moby). After a mutual friend in Charlotte insisted they meet, Albert Strawn and Derrick J. Hines began a slow collaborative effort that resulted in this diverse collection of genre-melding music. BTSUTC makes music that soundtracks a modern life: varied and layered, familiar and challenging.
From sweet indie folk to laid-back electro pop, with a touch of alternative hip hop, these lads have it covered with both hands -- and that is exactly how it’s presented in their live shows, as Hines and Strawn perform multiple tasks/roles, often simultaneously.
With a special brand of delicate daring, this North Carolina duo have the critics at Creative Loafing CLT proclaiming, “Where Bless These Sounds' debut album offered glimpses of talent and the promise of a bright pathway, On the Brink of Life is the fruition of those talents and the album one only hoped would come out of the group. Where the band was formerly 'one to watch' or keep an eye on within the Charlotte landscape, the new album takes it a step further and says, ‘This is a band you need to pay attention to intently.’”
