A wonderful mix of curious rhythms and captivating melodies! Maraton release magnetic new single titled Boltzmann Brain!
“Who is gonna fill the void when we´re gone
All we ever grow is old”
Maraton has the following to say:
“Boltzmann Brain embodies everything that we wanted to do with our new album. It’s eclectic, catchy, and a bit hard to place. The lyrics are a weird mix of nihilism and romantic melodrama. For us, it was a huge creative success in pretty much every way.”
Vocalist Fredrik Klemp ads that the song filles an unknown void in his life, that made him question his inner self-consciousness really mattered. Boltzmann Brain is the last single from Maratons upcoming album “Unseen Color”, set to release via Indie Recordings, October 7th.
Maraton break boundaries between genres, creating progressive alternative rock with roaring bass, massive guitars and exceptional vocals. Described as “shamelessly melodic”, the band experiments with sounds and creates music that can be described as a dynamic journey through sensory impressions. Thematically, lines are drawn between the emotional and the philosophical, and the songs are based on human receptivity to new impressions and developments.
Maraton released their debut album “Meta” in 2019, with great success and very good reviews internationally. At the time of writing, the debut has almost 3 million plays on Spotify alone, and despite the pandemic and little opportunity for concerts, the band’s fan base is constantly growing.
The band has been praised for their fantastic and energetic live performances with such claims as: “Bergersen’s falsetto delivery is simply amazing” and “With a voice driven by power and clarity, I was left with goosebumps in places you did not know you could get goosebumps ” – Heavymetal.no. Maraton have previously played at festivals such as Roskildefestivalen in Denmark, By:larm- and the Trondheim Rocks festival in Norway, and after the debut album they went on an extensive European tour with Leprous.
Maraton release their follow up album “Unseen Color” October 7th 2022.
