Mayflower Madame slipper ny EP - "Premonition" - den 18. mai  I forbindelse med utgivelsen gjør bandet forøvrig også en 9-dagers USA-turné som påbegynnes i New York den 1. mai. Releasekonsert holdes på John Dee den 15. juni.

Mayflower Madame er et band fra Oslo som spesialiserer seg på en særegen kombinasjon av mørk, suggererende post-punk og skimrende psykedelia. Vårt debutalbum Observed in a Dream (2016) fanget oppmerksomheten til betydelige internasjonale musikkpublikasjoner som Q Magazine, Drowned in Sound, CLASH og Classic Rock Magazine, og mottok svært gode kritikker i både inn- og utland. Siden den gang har vi turnert både i USA, Storbritannia, Tyskland og Nederland i tillegg til Skandinavia.

Noen sitater:

"Musikken er ankret opp i de dystrere, men deilig fengende delene av 80-tallsscenen. Lydbildet er skarpt og huggende, fullt av fresende uro og energi." (5/6) – Klassekampen

"Dvelende og surklende dronerock invaderer lytterens narkoleptiske dagdrømmer på liflig vis, så det siver e-sigarettrøyk ut av høyttalerne." – Dagens Næringsliv

”Das Liebeskind von Post-Punk und Neo-Psychedelia.“ (8/10)  – Classic Rock Magazine Germany

"A magnificent debut that offers an irresistible musical essence of Nordic Noir." – Louder Than War

"Deeply atmospheric psychedelia." – CLASH

"Mayflower Madame's sound has been compared to My Bloody Valentine, Spacemen 3 and The Jesus & Mary Chain. But actually only tells part of the story. Throw in a few post-punk references too. We're thinking Bauhaus, The Chameleons and The Sisters Of Mercy, and the melting pot of influences that makes up their sound is more or less complete." – Drowned in Sound

"Their sneering vocals and wickedly distorted guitar riffs are pure Jesus & Mary Chain, the ominous, echo-drenched atmospherics recall Sisters of Mercy, and the overall and very palpable sense of fear and dread harken back to Faith-era Robert Smith." - BlackBook

"This is dark, brooding stuff positively drenched with swagger. The shoegaze tendencies provide tremendous depth to the songs, letting the jangle of the guitars still hit with a lot of impact." - Ghettoblaster Magazine

“Coming on like a wicked mix of Echo & The Bunnymen and the Gun Club, feeding their paranoid dreams with an unrepentant dose of edgy psychedelia, this Oslo-based band rather surprised everyone by presenting an album full of rich, sinuous texture like not too many manage or even dare to consider in this realm.” - Stereo Embers Magazine

"'Lovesick' is a feverish nod to Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, while the needling guitars and motorik rhythm of 'Upside Down (the death loop)' possess the spacey menace of early Verve." – Q Magazine

"Immersive and frighteningly beautiful." – The Revue

"Many have been called to mimic their heroes, but few really get it right. Mayflower Madame has nothing to worry about, they have it nailed!” – The Big Takeover
