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 2018. With a love for colour co-ordination and each other, they are shaping up to be an unstoppable force in their music community and beyond- supporting bands such as DZ Deathrays and Good Doogs they are the ‘pissed off possé’ you need to be listening to right now. Consisting of jangly guitar, drums, bass, keys, saxophone and acerbic lyricism, 2019 is shaping up to be a very big year for the band. Their latest single 'Goodbye Headache’ is out on all platforms!

it's got a free form underwater charm with a healthy dose of sass.

Captures the indelible spirit of vocalist Saskia. The line "if you want to see a psycho / one's about to be fucking summoned" is a corker.

Yes, I'm having a great time with this one. When Saskia tells us that her Dad thinks she's a groover I can't help but agree (and want that kind of validation myself).
