Bio

Mal de Mer are a dynamic 5-piece powerhouse of indie-funk hailing from Perth, WA. Their upbeat and unique sound, paired with excoriating lyrics, creates captivating and catchy music. With an eclectic mix of trumpet, guitar, synth, bass, and drums, they are the ‘pissed-off possé’ you need to be listening to right now.
Their new single ‘Smile’ is out April 8th

Saskia's vocals remind me of Emma from Heaps Good Friends in that they're laced with character and are going to be immediately recognizable. Big fan of a horn breakdown
