Funeral by Mavrick has a big, big sound in that M83 sort of way. It feels produced for arena audiences and cell phones held high in the air with flames on the screens. While the sound can feel a bit overwhelming, it lifts like a gospel choir. This type of over the top production can be detrimental if all the fury of the sound overtakes the message. Thankfully Mavrick possesses an earnest vocal performance that keeps all the production touches grounded and he has an artful knack for phrasing. When he sings, "At 4am it all makes a little more sense.... don't it" the deep pop hook pulls me in every time.
Based out of Stockholm, Sweeden and signed to Universal Music, Mavrick is working on his debut album. Check out Funeral out below.
