Mac Demarco on Indie Accent

Mac Demarco

b. 1990 | ORIGIN: CANADA

McBriare Samuel Lanyon "Mac" DeMarco (born Vernor Winfield McBriare Smith IV, April 30, 1990) is a Canadian singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer. He is best known for his solo career, during which he has released four studio albums, Rock and Roll Night Club (2012), 2 (2012), Salad Days (2014), and Another One (2015). His style of music has been creatively described as "blue wave", "slacker rock", or self-described by DeMarco as "jizz jazz".
DeMarco's style is recognizable via its use of flat drums, use of chorus effect on the guitar and a generally lazy atmosphere a la soft rock records, along with a Lennon-esque vocal style which has also been compared to Damon Albarn of Blur. He has also mentioned Shuggie Otis, Steely Dan, Yellow Magic Orchestra, Jonathan Richman and The Grateful Dead as favorite artists. His guitar-based compositions have moved from glam-inspired works to what reviewers describe as "off-kilter pop" or "Folk Rock"
