Norwegian outfit Maribel could soundtrack the most hallucinogenic dream or hellish nightmare at the flick of a switch. Although released as far back as May, the likes of 'Deflowers' and 'Siamese Eyes' have rarely been off the SVM turntable, fusing Loveless-spawned sound collages with luscious boy/girl harmonies that recall such hallowed combinations as Butcher & Shields or Goswell & Halstead. At times intrinsically mellow, at others outlandishly buoyant, Maribel undoubtedly possess the potential to follow in the footsteps of fellow compatriots in noisemaking Serena Maneesh and Magenta.

"One of the best Norwegian Rock Debuts in a long time...Maribel use their time to get under the skin, but when it happens, you have discovered one of your favorite band’s for life ...
Aesthetics travels through a curtain of noise and emerges as a warm-hearted punk album where almost every song is a highlight. "

Bio

MARIBEL came onto the Norwegian rock scene in full force in 2009 with one of the year’s most critically acclaimed records ’Aesthetics’ (produced and mixed by Emil Nikolaisen of Serena Maneesh), however, the formed nearly three years early with scattered touring, a radio single and a gig at Oslo's Øya Festival.

Since forming the group have added Rebekka Markstein (Pica Pica) on vocals and played Norwegian festivals such as By:Larm, The Oya Festival and Hove Festival in recent years. In 2009 they toured in the UK with Crystal Stilts, toured Norway with Le Corbeau (Øystein Sandsdalen of Serena Maneesh) and on top of this were invited to open for bands like the the Raveonettes, Dandy Warhols, Interpol, Warlocks, and the Telescopes. Despite this the band remains a secret gem of the Norwegian underground scene but with a new album in the works Maribel looks to begin making a name for themselves internationally.

This spring the band is set to begin work on their follow up to 'Aesthetics' while making appearances at the Spot Festival in Denmark and Pop Up in Germany.
