Martha Calling

BandAlternativeNew Age

Our music is colorful. I see multiple rainbows and spectrums of light when writing these songs. We create dreamy atmospheres, and gloomy foggy graveyards. We aim to take your mind to other places; to capture your thoughts and free them in a universe only imaginable while under the influence of us.MC

Biography

We combine ambient guitar sounds with thick deep rhythm guitar sounds. Our keyboard usage is minimal, though it is used to add layering of sound and keep everything colorful. We stole our drummer from a jazz combo.
We take great amounts of influence from Radiohead, Animal Collective, and The Flaming Lips.
We love weird time signatures. 5/4, 7/8, and 10/8 are quite fun. My favorite part of music is the triplet. So most of our songs are written to where the rhythm could be in 4/4 or 6/8, depending on how you listen to it.
Our favorite part of gigging is watching people make faces with the expression of "What... is this?"
We range from overwhelmingly happy sounds, to highly sad depressing sounds. We want to imitate life with our sounds. We are commited to creating art which is alive.
