Maribel are noisy quartet from Oslo, Norway. The debut album Aesthetics was produced by a bigger Norwegian musician Emil Nikolaisen (Serena Maneesh) alongside Bjarne Stensli (Harrys Gym). The album feature two guest musicians such as Audun Storset (The Lionheart Brothers) and Milton Von Krogh (Pirate Love) as well. They sound like The Jesus And Mary Chain rucking with The Cramps. Otherwise, it remind us mostly of My Bloody Valentine's 1988 record. The entire album are really amazing despite a damn drum like a machine. The abundant feedback squalls completely deprive of the ear, it's the heavily layered with buried female vocals and of course a passionate shoegaze fan must already be enough only in it. "The single 'Taste The Trash' is catchy and noisy. The vocals are incredible good and after the first 35 seconds I can't get it out of my head (...) Maribel sounds sexy. Dark and mysterious" - The norwegian fanzine Furore i harare
