Bio

Mal de Mer are an indie surf/funk/pop band hailing from Perth, WA. Forming in December of 2017, the band have been playing weekly gigs since February; and were invited to play Fairbridge Festival in 2018. Consisting of John Harvey, Claudia Genovese, Saskia Fleming, and not one, but TWO Emmas (Emma Crawford & Emma Gushlow)- this group of mates are definitely making a name for themselves around the Perth music scene.

Their first single Wet Socks was released on the 22nd of June on most platforms (spotify, iTunes, Apple Music etc.), and they are in the midst of recording their follow-up single- set to be released in the coming months.

Wet Socks takes you on a real trip but never feels like it's trying. Also, nearly all music needs more saxophone. Not this. This has a great amount of saxophone.

You guys must have pretty good aim cos everything you throw at the wall - from the rippling psych to the garage hum and the horn wails - seems to hit just right.
