“Advertise on the Moon is a wild ride through band leader Michael Procter’s kaleidoscopic musical mind.” Trouble Juice, 2020

The Mornington Peninsula pop ensemble, led by the ever-creative Michael Procter, with Eddie Tomas, André Pinochi, Angus Landy and Lachlan Meagher have grown from strength to strength with their brand of 60’s pop influenced, garage rock and dreamy psychedelia. 

The band has garnered a reputation as one of Melbournes most tenacious and productive bands, playing at iconic venues and local festivals throughout Victoria. Producing music that emphasis’s versatility in a smooth and epic motion, their releases Jumpin Cliffs EP (2015), Crawl Out Your Window (2016) and the ambitious album Advertise on the Moon (2020) have solidified their status as a creative force unafraid of evolving while still stying true to their roots.

 

In 2021 they released a follow up to AOTM with their catchy singles Jamaica Farewell pt II/ Judy Blue which were recorded on entirely vintage and analogue audio equipment. Available now on 7" vinyl.

2023 sees the release of their fourth studio album Beyond the Bump, featuring singles such as Too Late Now and the absolute crowd favourite song Cherry Tomatoes. The album ushers in a new era for the band as they explore different and unfamiliar aspects of life and pairing these experiences with jangly guitars and catchy melodies to create their most introspective album to date.

The Marlenes have a large following in Japan after their 2016 single Enchantment Under the Sea featured on the Japanese TV show Terrace House. For the past six years they have been contributing to the Melbourne music scene, as a band that have the rare ability to make you sing out, dance and ruminate. Sometimes all at the same time.

 

“The album finds Michael and his band tackling every idea and style available to them”- Trouble Juice, 2020
