Fuelled by the virtuosity of lush, deeply captivating tunes is Maicamia, a Montreal experimental outfit featuring Maica Armata, Jonny Paradise and Mauro Pezzente (who is also a member of Godspeed You! Black Emperor).These guys have come together to deliver a reverential swirl of experimental rock and contemporary folk.
They explore the possibilities of sampling in electronic wash, minimalist guitar, extensive instrumentation, soulful beats and vocals that demand your attention. Impeccably constructed, the result is a captivatingly cinematic take on experimental rock. The band have forged hooks, melodies and beauty without losing their cerebral side – it’s music that scales great emotional heights even as it revels in the intricacies of sonic interplay.
Maicamia self-released their sophomore album Des Era in January, prompting a tour of Canada including shows in Montreal, Toronto and Quebec City. Visit their sublime world below and hassle them for an Aussie tour.
