Marnorlady, a psychedelic shoegaze band form Charlottesville, VA, are releasing their new album Ego Oppressor and a limited one-sided 7" Boyhood Freedom in June. Dark and foreboding their songs will be embraced by fans of The Cure and Dead Leaf Echo at their gloomiest.
Dense layered guitars, slow drums and slightly sinister vocals, Manorlady goes for the gothic post-rock niche. Melissa and Aaron Bailey's vocals flow together as only family voices can do.
Aaron Bailey: guitar, vocals, programming
Melissa Bailey: bass, vocals
Donald Wooley: keyboards
