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. Consisting of jangly guitar, drums, bass, keys, saxophone and acerbic lyricism, 2019 is shaping up to be a very big year for the band.

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).

it's smooth and smart and creeps under your skin with each listen.

Ohhh HelL to the yes, that surf rock vibe got me so so into this tune. Saskia your voice has such a great energy to it, totally your own sound. Pumped to see what else you guys serve up!
