In Montrealâs indie pop noir group, The Darling DeMaes, refreshing melodies and male-female-male harmonies meet a healthy dose of schizophrenia. Obsessive arrangements drift from section to section with an ease that somehow makes sense. A complex simplicity permeates the demaesâ music, piloted by songwriter Erik Virtanenâs unique, sometimes odd, but always honest storytelling that seamlessly blends joyful love, joyful hate, humour, regret, and utter horror. Echoes of classic '60s to new wave and the now are weaved through songs that humbly drift outside the box at moments without leaving anyone behind.

The demaes' LP debut, "A User's Guide to Raising the Dead", was recorded by Joseph Donovan (The Dears, Sam Roberts) and Adrian Popovich (Tricky Woo) and mastered by Noah Mintz (Feist, Broken Social Scene).

Press Quotes

"Likely to make you get up and dance as they are to inspire a pensive pose. It's pretty stuff, complete with textured guitars, propulsive rhythms, fluttering harmonies and subtly soaring melodies... We will be hearing more from these guys." T'cha Dunlevy, Montreal Gazette

"Singer Erik Virtanenâs balance of bleeding heart and backhanded humour, twin fixations on love and death and faint retro rock ânâ roll echo make him a contender for the next big new Morrissey. His voice is softer, the bandâs arrangements more acoustic, but the Darling DeMaesâ giddy highs and suicidal lows evoke the Smiths and their ilk, without aping them." Lorraine Carpenter, Montreal Mirror

"While it's easy to throw around the term "indie" with reference to The DeMaes, the group's output is a unique blend of classic folk with their own upbeat relevant approach... The product is a poetic, lyrically focused batch of songs that are likely to set them aside from the rest of the genre." Steve Adamyk, Ottawa XPress
