THE MARS MCCLANES
Portland, United States
The Mars McClanes have done it again. Their latest single, ‘Be Still,’ is an amalgamation of post-rock and pop blended into one emotionally mature ballad that delights with every note. It's a slow song, a solemn song and it fits the textures and tones of The Mars McClanes beautifully. From the expansive droning instrumental that sits behind the guitar to the crunchy-clean light that spreads from the lead vocal, it's a sound forged in heaven, gifted to us by the saints of rock. The verses build you up and the chorus knocks you down in a slow, caressing fashion that is confounding.
The Mars McClanes are racking up great song after great song. Each one houses a different tone, a different message, meaning one of their songs will definitely be for you. ‘Be Still’ is a massive hit if you’re into the rock ballads from the 90s into the early 2000s. A musical and tonal wonder and one you won’t want to miss.
