Meagre Martin + Hexmaze

11 February @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm


Meagre Martin Brighton

Meagre Martin live in Brighton at The Hope & Ruin on 11th February!
Get tickets above, or from Dice.

Berlin-based songwriter-turned-trio Meagre Martin was founded in the summer of 2021 by the African-American musician and songwriter Sarah Martin (guitar, she/her) and quickly joined by Federico „Freddy” Corazzini (drums, he/him) and Max Hirtz-Wolf (bass, he/him). Blending together elements of lo-fi and new-Americana, Meagre Martin is a culmination of experience rooted in healing, through lyricism that gives nostalgia new layers and harnesses the power of grief. Their debut GUT PUNCH (out November 10th via Mansions and Millions) create a sound inspired by shoegaze, 90’s indie, or ‘faux country,’ as the band calls it, and juxtaposes these beautifully light soundscapes with lyrics that belie the sweetness of the sound with their vulnerability and depth. After playing a bunch of festivals and shows in Germany and neighbouring countries and opening for Alt-J in North America, the band is set for a busy year of touring. https://meagremartin.bandcamp.com/album/gut-punch

+ Hexmaze: Hexmaze are Aneta, Alex, Emma, Mel and Sophie – five women brought together from the UK, Sweden, Poland and Mexico to make music that mashes together punk guitars, fuzzed out jams and harmonic chants. Having taken a forced pause during the pandemic, Hexmaze are back and finally ready to reclaim where they left off. They make their live return with shows in the UK and Stockholm, Sweden in February of 2024, to coincide with the release of their long awaited (very kick ass!) debut EP ‘Stalemate’ on the 6th February on Rock Hag Records. The EP was recorded, mixed and produced by drummer Sophie Ellison, with EP artwork by guitarist Alexandra Shepherd.

Their critically acclaimed debut single ”Hex Hex Hex” came out in 2018 with a music video premiered on Clash Magazine. On 7th November, Hexmaze will release a newly mastered version of Hex Hex Hex (the anniversary of its original release) and announce the first single off the forthcoming EP, ‘Stalemate’ (for release on 14th Nov).
