Watch the Psychdelic Post-punk Shoegaze of MAYFLOWER MADAME “Ludwig Meidner”

Mayflower Madame makes gorgeously dissonant and urgent post-punk that seamlessly blends with shoegaze to unfurl layer upon layer of gauzy sonics over your ice-cold eardrums. This Oslo band has mastered a psychedelic take on post-punk that’s got my mind wavering and wobbling like it’s floating away on psychedelics! Today we’re excited to share their video for the track “Ludwig Meidner” off their recent release Prepared For A Nightmare. It’s out now on Little Cloud Records, Icy Cold Records, and Only Lovers Records – order it here (US) and here (UK/EU).

“Ludwig Meidner” is a new single/music video from our recently released second album “Prepared For A Nightmare”. The track is inspired by (and dedicated to) German expressionist painter Ludwig Meidner (1884-1966), mostly known for his apocalyptic landscapes and cityscapes which portray the chaotic modern world as a ferment volcano about to erupt. On a more individual level, it also describes a relentless search and longing for sources of intensified emotions in the mechanized concrete jungle – a dangerous ride which might lead you to the point of no return. However, as in Meidner’s visions, the idea of letting it all burst can involve both a fear for doom and a hope for catharsis.
