Wading through modern-day life hurdles
Blue Mar (F.K.A Marcelo Deiss) is a Brazilian born, LA-based artist whose music dances between gritty guitar and nostalgic/vintage sounds.
Wading through modern-day life hurdles and feeling tense and unable to unwind, Blue Mar’s music is a reflection of how quickly we lose track of what is real and what isn’t. To bring light to these issues, he uses a lot of tongue-in-cheek phrasing and elements of dark humour. The listener may find themselves singing along to the whimsical melodies without realizing that the lyrics are in-depth and meaningful.
“Eulogy For Rohith Vemula” is the new single off the upcoming album The March Hare and pays tribute to Rohith Vemula’s life and activism in India. With the fallout of the pandemic having a profound impact on his life, Blue Mar found himself searching for inspiration in new places, when he stumbled across a selection of 26 essays in a book called “The Good Immigrant”.
Despite being named a “Eulogy” the track is a wash of thoughtful soundscapes, uplifted by a calming trill of ukulele, and a hum of soft yet husky vocals. Written in his Sao Paulo apartment in just two days, the track is one of the quickest songs he has ever written, however, it radiates the compassion and admiration you’d show a close friend.
Having lived in both London and Sao Paulo, the musician is able to explore new sounds as well as new topics. Through the rawness of his music and the sheer gravity of his lyrics, the indie artist is creating music that focuses on human connection and elicits strong emotions.
