"THE MAVEN’S TELESCOPE… SEEING STARS!"

The Fray and System of a Down had a baby, and it’s wonderful. No, the two groups didn’t collaborate, but the new group, The Mavens Telescope, has many elements of both groups. They take the beautiful sound of the piano and mash it with Jonas Ariel’s whimsical and yet powerful vocals and you get quite the combination. Their genre is definitely alternative rock, and they rock it.

If you want to get a clearer idea, listen to their songs “Elephant” and “Mind the Gap”. The first is soft and magical, while the latter gets nitty and gritty. What’s impressive is that Ariel’s vocals, as well as the entire band, don’t change in quality. It’s challenging for artists to go out of their comfort zone, but The Mevens Telescope doesn’t seem to not have a comfort zone– double negative intended.

The group has generously posted their entire album to their website, where you can download it for free and make a generous donation (or not), or purchase it directly through iTunes, Amazon, Deezer, and Google Play. You can even check them out on Spotify. You can’t get much more of a bargain than that, can you? This group has invaded the Earth and there’s no room to run. The good news is, why would you want to? Their talent is wide and vast, and their sound expands as far as the universe.

Let this group do what they were born to: let them show you the stars. - Static Magazine

Bio

The Mavens Telescope was born in Brazil back in 2013, as a product of the road already been travelled by its members Jonas Ariel (Vocal) and Thales Posella (Guitar) from 2004 till today, playing along within different projects.


Beto Ferrari (Drums), who also was a part of those years of live playing, was the name that couldn’t been left aside to occupy the drummers seat.

With the album recordings ongoing, who took the place on the Bass guitar was Flávio Anchieta, musician with long curriculum within the entire country.


Jonas and Thales produced the album “the seed of true existence” at a home studio and after the recordings were done, the mix was done by Thales’ hands to then later been taken to the hands of Mr. Andy VanDette, who mastered it in NYC.


The lyrics of the album portrait, almost in its majority, personal relations, that sometimes it’s been written literally and sometimes been translated into philosophical confrontations, fictitious or not.


The sound goes through influences that gambols with indie rock, some heavy grooves and a touch of electronic mood on top, to give it a little flavor to the ambience.


The visual concept on the artwork was elaborated by Jonas to speak with the thematics of the album and to keep the artistic work inside the studio within the production phase as part of the creation process.


The visual concept of the live performances was designed by Victor Pardinho, who acts as Live VJ and video mapper.
