4 years after the release of debut album Heavenvia Fabrika Records (also the home of Lebanon Hanover, She Past Away), M!R!M is back with Iuvenis, a dark/pop LP with 14 new tracks smoothly sewn by the young London based Italian Jack Milwaukee.
Iuvenis is the result of two years of writing in my bedroom Jack says. Entirely written with analog and digital synths, vintage drum machines, blurry vocals and dark bass lines, Iuvenis is once again a DIY work.
The album is clearly influenced by the 80’s post-punk / synth pop scene (New Order, The Wake (Killing Joke); yet it differs from the previous album and follows the last work released such as the 7 Matilde / Velvet Dress and the dream pop experience matured with Leave The Planet.
The StoryTelling in Iuvenis is more obvious than before, the album takes the listener to a deep nostalgic obscurity where laying down
and being cuddled gently by the solitude is a must, while the sealing gets pierced by soft dreams and impossible hopes to reach. Iuvenis is a Latin Word which means young man, which I am Jack says. Iuvenis is the second release by M!R!M on Manic Depression, after the highly praised 7 single Reel / Flowers in Bloom in 2014. The CD will be followed by a limited VINYL edition in late june.
