HIT THE WAVES
Digital single - DLAB050
"...frontman Philip Ekstrom's voice strains to Robert Smith-esque levels of yearning, crashing again and again into the cresting chorus like the prow of a motorboat." PITCHFORK
Second single from their third album with the same name. Inspired by hidden treasures from the eighties...

12" Vinyl/Digital -LAB0143
The Mary Onettes return with "Love Forever" produced by Dan Lissvik. Gone are the echoing reverbs reverbs, the 80's guitars and the big, splashing drums. Instead, the new EP is a wonder of genre-blurring fearlessness drawing on ambient textures, avant-garde rhythms and intricate arrangements. A delicately beautiful collection of songs.

2. Will I Ever Be Ready
3. A Breaking Heart Is A Brilliant Start
4. 8th Of June
The Mary Onettes’ critically acclaimed debut was described as the perfect mix between A-ha and The Jesus and Mary Chain. Now they are back with a grandiose new album. Imagine a Swedish equivalent of The National on a diet of speed, Planet Earth DVDs, and 80’s guitar pop singles and you’ll have a vague idea of how amazing this is.
3. Once I was pretty
4. Cry for love
5. The disapperance of my youth
6. God knows I had plans
9. Whatever saves me
Grandiose new single by The Mary Onettes. Written in isolation and partly recorded in a church "Dare" still ends up their most uplifting song to date - imagine a Swedish equivalent of The National on a diet of speed, Planet Earth DVDs and Go-Betweens singles and you’ll have a vague idea of how wonderful this is!
3. God knows I had plans
THE MARY ONETTES
Long awaited debut album from Sweden’s best new band. It took them two years and three labels to get here, but if that’s what they needed in order to produce what must be one of the finest Swedish debut album ever, it was worth all the wait.
These ten songs sound somewhat like a modern version of A-ha dressed in black mixed with early The Jesus and Mary Chain on an arena.
1. Pleasure songs
4. The Laughter
6. The companion
9. Under the guillotine
Sweden's finest is back with three amazing new songs that make us remember the days of The Smiths - when every song on every single was equally important. »Void« sounds somewhat like a modern version of A-ha dressed in black mixed with early The Jesus and Mary Chain on an arena.
The EP contains two brilliant exclusive tracks that will not appear on the album.
2. Everyday and today
Labrador proudly presents The Mary Onettes. Inspired by guitar pop
from the 80's and indie bands from the 90's they sound like a Swedish
relative to Echo & The Bunnymen, New Order och The Jesus and Mary
Chain from the future.
Their debut EP for Labrador »Lost« is the most emotional, desolate
and utterly wonderful pop music you can possibly hear in the year 2006.
