Mac DeMarco Calms His Wild Side in 'Brother'

Mac DeMarco is an enigmatic being, one who you may have trouble taking seriously. Suddenly, right when we were beginning to warm up to his wild-eyed stare and menacing grin, DeMarco has removed the quirky veil. His latest single "Brother", off his forthcoming album Salad Days, exhibits the Canadian artist's contrasting and remarkably pensive aesthetic.

"Brother" takes listeners on a slow, contemplative drive through the middle of the night where passing street lights are represented by picking guitar strings and DeMarco reflects, perhaps as his future self who's advising the modern Mac: "But it's still up to you, to take my advise / So take it slowly, brother / Let it go now, brother." It's a boozy tune, one that transcends into Velvet Underground realms, and it's a side of DeMarco we're looking forward to hearing more on Salad Days.



Salad Days is due out April 1st on Captured Tracks. Pre-order your copy here.
