Kone Mara is a new trio based in Sweden. Not too long ago, they released a wonderful debut single, entitled, “The Ordinary Place.”
Kone Mara – “The Ordinary Place” single
‘The Ordinary Place’ is a song about feeling homesick. About traveling and searching for oneself and one’s home anywhere and everywhere, only to realize that it’s been there all along.” – Kone Mara explained
‘The Ordinary Place’ contains a nostalgic narrative, ear-pleasing vocals, and tuneful melodies. The likable tune possesses vibrant instrumentation flavored with a warm indie-pop vibration. Furthermore, “The Ordinary Place” serves as a fantastic introduction to what listeners can expect to hear from Kone Mara in the near future.
“We met at a breakfast table, and in the early morning hours, a friendship arose. We shared secrets and wrote music inspired by our stories. Coffee, poems, dreams and wishes.” – Kone Mara stated
They say all good things come in threes, which is also true for Kone Mara. The poet, the musician, and the technician – three creative souls with three different creative backgrounds who, by chance, found each other both musically and artistically.
In a field where most people work at night, they united in their appreciation and love for the early morning hours. Together, they’ve combined their separate backgrounds and influences in a unique and romantic soundscape where nostalgic and organic instruments are accompanied by electric and futuristic synthesizers.
“The Ordinary Place” single
“I went forth and back until I lost my track. Saw my mom and dad, thought I was going mad. Spent some time at sea, but inside of me, I realized that I was free. I was looking for a space, an ordinary place, I needed to feel it. Someone else to draw the line, if you thought that I’d be fine. I failed it, to see it how it is. I said it for the very first time, walking in your sun. I sealed it, the feeling.” – lyrics
The name Kone Mara derived from “કોણ મા,” which means, “for whom,” in Mahatma Gandhi’s mother tongue, Gujarati. With the name, the band wants us to know that their music is not meant for one specific audience, but for everyone to feel included and to join together and talk about the events and the volatility of life. Also, to rejoice in and appreciate what we have here and now.
