Buenos Aires-based band, .MAR (to be pronounced ‘Mar’) was formed in 2015 after a sequence of project mutations in the city suburbs. After an extended period of acknowledgment and comprehension, the band evolved from a traditional power trio into an explorative group where styles and ambiances are nothing but entangled, ranging from progressive rock and metal to post-rock and electronic music.
Even though the band’s musical fingerprint is constantly evolving, .MAR has found its way into writing music that appeals to the audience by generating a light narrative or constructing auras that transcend sonic barriers. Mar I is the band’s opening statement, a 35-minute captivating album that was crafted upon individual growth and unquenchable collaboration. .MAR’s music will certainly appeal to listeners of bands such as but not limited to We Lost The Sea, Plini, Haken, God Is An Astronaut, Intervals, sleepmakeswaves, Tesseract, and Karnivool, among many others. These have contributed to the band’s quest for musical identity and still do. Spacing across the whole spectrum, .MAR could be pinpointed as a stepping stone outlet that can serve longtime prog fans, as well as newcomers. However, the band is confident it can also reach fans outside this genre.
The band had the amazing opportunity to be selected by Gojira to be the opening act for their Buenos Aires presentation at Luna Park Stadium, renowned for having held top-tier artists from around the world. In front of approximately four thousand attentive people, .MAR performed its live debut, which was greatly received. After that, the band was also invited to open for Trivium and Alcest.
