Millennials’ favourite guy, Vernor Winfield McBriare Smith IV – known as MAC DEMARCO – will make Pohoda 2019 sway to his summer BBQ soundtrack and casual surf-rock.
This 28-year-old Canadian singer and multi-instrumentalist managed to release three albums and two LPs during half a decade, with Pitchfork labelling the first two albums “Best New Music” in their praising reviews. However, don’t let yourself be fooled with the lazy-dreamy records when it comes to your concert expectations.
After lulling the crowd with seamless sunny tunes, the Canadian pop eccentric breaks into a final act of stupendous abandon, magic tricks and yodelling.Mark Beaumont – Guardian newspaper
From Edmonton to Vancouver, from there to Montreal, New York to finally land in Los Angeles. MAC DEMARCO was drawing new inspiration in all of these cities, yet he remained faithful to his unmistakable style, which is a trend for others. His songs are dominated by a guitar with a distinctive chorus and vibrato complemented by 80s synths, flat drums, lo-fi bass, and DeMarco’s unmistakable voice. Mac started in Vancouver punk-rock bands like Japandroids or Makeout Videotape. After moving to Montreal, he tried a solo career, but it didn’t go as well as he’d hoped, and so he was earning extra money in medical experiments or as a road workman.
