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.
