Watch: Mal De Mer - Mirage

Watch: Mal De Mer - Mirage

Take a listen to the funky final single from the west coast collective’s forthcoming EP

Continuing to refuse to be pigeonholed and stick to one genre are Perth / Boorloo’s Mal De Mer, who today give us the fantastic song and video combo that is Mirage, the last taste of their forthcoming Sanguine EP, due out July 8.

Sure to cause instant head nods, Mirage packs bright, shimmering guitar lines, deep horns and twinkling synths, with vocalist Saskia Fleming’s engaging vocals bringing it all together.  

On the creation of Mirage, drummer James Marelich explains, It’s always a great feeling finishing music and finally releasing it, but this one feels especially surreal as we only wrote it a couple of months ago! Watching it transform from an idea into a full-fledged piece of music so quickly has been awesome”. 

Featuring a super fun and tongue-in-cheek video directed by long-time collaborator Sarah Gelmi, the video hilariously details an exaggerated break up, with vocalist Saskia elaborating The video is a satirical send up of leaving a crappy relationship - it taps into the joy of moving on and looking back with relief.” 

Give Mirage a watch and listen now ahead of the Sanguine EP dropping July 8!
