Marriage OK to Disconnect 2015

PREMIERE: Get ripped on Marriage’s OK to Disconnect and “Boy M” anti-video

The Toronto-based psych act's debut bathes you entirely in their warm, druggy glow.

- May 12, 2015

Marriage want you to move more slowly, to look more closely, and to listen more carefully. The Toronto four-piece ply a brand of psychedelia that's blissfully glazed over, as if by sedatives. "Morphine pop" they call it. Pillowy tones drift in and out; there are no edges. Motifs iterate and grow in geologic time. Everything is washed over by a pleasant, warm fog — both delighted and detached at once. Their debut "visual album," OK to Disconnect (streaming at the bottom), bathes you in that glow entirely, intensely.

Marriage - Boy M

To accompany the album's release, the band has produced a series of music videos — one for each song. Along with the stream, they've shared the first such clip, for the LP's lead single "Boy M," directed by the band's own Brett Zadravetz and Heretical Objects Cooperative's Jenny Warne. They call the piece an "anti-music video," meant to revel in the mundanity of the scene, finding tensions and drama even in minutia.

Marriage's OK to Disconnect is out Friday May 15 through Heretical Objects Cooperative, celebrated with a release party that evening at Toronto's Double Double Land.
