MINIATURE SUBMARINES

 

Miniature Submarines

Artist – Bio

Miniature Submarines is a vehicle for the solo recordings of Mark Nelson, otherwise known for his work in Melbourne band The Stabs. Stylistically the Submarines music couldn’t be further removed from The Stabs sound – this is unashamedly and exercise in pop. The songs are layered in melodic guitar parts of repetition and feedback but presented with a care closer to a cotton wool caress than the steel wool scrape which Mark has been flaunting of recent years. Mark is joined by Monika Fikerle (Love of Diagrams, Baseball) who has been good enough to nail the hell out of the drum parts on the first couple of tracks.

02 I heard That You Turned Into A Loser, Baby by Rice Is Nice

A similar combination of pretty and crunchy is a hallmark of so much ’90s rock, which provides Nelson with ongoing inspiration. But the gloomy noise-pop of both ‘The Little Room Under The Stairs’ and ‘I Heard That You Turned Into A Loser, Baby’ doesn’t recall any one band, which is saying something, really. – Doug Wallen, Mess + Noise

“The first really exciting moment of the night is provided by Miniature Submarines, a new project featuring Love Of Diagrams’ Monica Fikerle. They sound kinda post-grunge, in that they take cues from the raw, unadorned guitar thrash of 1990s Seattle and build on them to develop a sound of their own – full of thick distortion and fuzz, but also with surprisingly delicate melodic interludes. In short, they tick all the right boxes, and they sound great” The Vine, June 2009
