"Premiere: Marriage – Boy-M"

We regrettably missed the first two years of Toronto’s Marriage existence. Their numerous EPs, 10 singles with b-sides are full of genre spanning psychedelic numbers with an inherent weirdness made with immaculate skill. It’s “Boy-M,” however, that takes all of those elements and hones them into their most cohesive release to-date. The first single from the debut record OK to Disconnect — perfectly at home on the Doomsquad-run Heretical Objects — keeps the inherent weirdness intact but creates a dreamy psychedelic affair with sweeping synths and soaring harmonized vocals.

Based on the strength of this song, I think we can expect some very special things from the record. Each track will have an accompanying video heavily indebted to artists Len Lye and Philippe Blanchard, and their already installation-art style live show will presumably be notched up even further.

The record is out May 13 on Heretical Objects with a release show May 15 at Double Double Land in Toronto. - Silent Shout

"PREMIERE: Get ripped on Marriage’s OK to Disconnect and “Boy M” anti-video"

Marriage want you to move more slowly, to look more closely, and to listen more carefully. The Toronto four-piece ply a brand of psychedelia that's blissfully glazed over, as if by sedatives. "Morphine pop" they call it. Pillowy tones drift in and out; there are no edges. Motifs iterate and grow in geologic time. Everything is washed over by a pleasant, warm fog — both delighted and detached at once. Their debut "visual album," OK to Disconnect (streaming at the bottom), bathes you in that glow entirely, intensely.

To accompany the album's release, the band has produced a series of music videos — one for each song. Along with the stream, they've shared the first such clip, for the LP's lead single "Boy M," directed by the band's own Brett Zadravetz and Heretical Objects Cooperative's Jenny Warne. They call the piece an "anti-music video," meant to revel in the mundanity of the scene, finding tensions and drama even in minutia.

Marriage's OK to Disconnect is out Friday May 15 through Heretical Objects Cooperative, celebrated with a release party that evening at Toronto's Double Double Land. - Chart Attack


Still working on that hot first release.



From No Wave to Power Pop, Toronto's Marriage eat up everything in their vicinity only to regurgitate it back onto the floor in a heap of neon sludge. Since their formation in 2013, the prolific young 4 piece has released 10 singles and b-sides, as well as a series of EPs. Onstage, Marriage offer up their sound in tandem with homemade installations that have included wire-frame sculptures, noise-sensitive light, and a large pulsating egg. The band's interdisciplinary tendencies have led to shows in venues like the Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery and the Gladstone Hotel. Sonically and visually, Marriage create a nest of spectral delights that awaits your presence to reveal its contents.
