THE MARY ONETTES VoidThe heavy 80’s influenecd Swedish rocks have done it again. After releasing the fantastic single “Lost,” they’ve hit us again with another single. “Void” with it’s running guitars along with two b-sides “Everyday And Today” and “Translate” will get our appetites ready for their upcoming full-length.

This band is everything that a lot of today’s “80’s influenced” bands wish they were. In comparison Interpol, The Stills, Cities, Editors, The Killers, etc. The Mary Onettes produce a sound that is so much more authentic and natural. From Philip Ekström’s reverbed vocals echoing and the jangling guitars jangling and brooding lyrics brooding, you would definitely mistake their music for something that really came out of the 80’s.

Now whether they will be able to compete with the juggernauts in an ocean of bands is another question. But regardless if they blow up or not, The Mary Onettes will definitely be known for bringing forth music that’s timeless just like their predecessors.

    The Mary Onettes “Everyday and Today” is absolutely stunning. Sounds like it could have been a reprised lost A-ha track. I can’t imagine how good their full length will be…for now I am anxiously awaiting the brilliance. Not to be missed.

    Strumming can provide a very cool percussive effect too when done well.
    This show appealed to the rural audience that built CBS.
