It's hard to say what the need for creating music really is and to which categories of desires it belongs. But on the basis of only a few effortless observations you can just make some kind of generalisation. Obviously, there is a group of people whose motivation to create sounds tops all the other drives. For these people the terms defining some feelings and features such as rationality, autonomy, sense etc. only find their way in the company and by means of spreading sound waves. Each phenomenon present in their lives corresponds with a collection of sounds. Each day and night bring new rhythms, vibrations, resonances and sounds. Their bodies are full of tension and they give vent to it by creating music. The group Margareds' came into being just because of the interaction of the above factors. She has always been addicted to the magic of singing. He has just left a grunge band. They have joined together to be able to live a normal life so their beings and what they see and hear won't perish with them. Separated by the land and Strait of Dover they started to communicate by means of songs which message they decided to record to give normality to other people who are similar to them. The final effect, as in any case of sincere creation, has turned out to be an original mixture. It is enriched with the guitars and basses of the musicians from George Dorn Screams and MeHico and with the saxophone of Dubska band. Margreds' album, being full of ethereal melodies, is a mixture of spatial vocals, unlimited freedom and thrilling sections. It has been created both for crazy, energetic and hedonistic people and for introverts who like spending their time counting the stars in the sky. An open mind, peace, warm feelings and thoughts is all you need to understand and become one of us.

The Margareds' first album is a phenomenon which is difficult to be described. When you hear its first sounds you will feel an incredible dose of esthetic elegance which irrespective of how the situation is changing will make you listen to it patiently till the end. And that's ok because it is the key to discover what Margareds' music is really like. Why is the content of the album worth being treated carefully? Because it contains 13 carefully polished up songs. Anybody who approaches music and only looks forward to an immediate increase of dopamine will be disappointed. The whole album is structurally at the similar level of expression. Listening to it you won't hear any sudden changes of the tempo and main parts being like a black spot on a white piece of a paper. Everything in here which is the tastiest is hidden in nooks and crannies. Individual instruments and soundtracks aren't connected with one another the way it usually is. They intermingle and plait as if they wanted to be favourites. And the object of their sighs is not a listener but the vocalist Goosia. She has an incredible voice, amazing ideas, beautiful and mature lyrics. It's mainly her singing that determines the structure of a particular song. Her voice carries the feelings which are defined by all- embracing and appearing from all sides sounds of synthesizer, low bass guitar and inspiring sounds of saxophone and guitar. Although Margareds' is an original and unique group you can't help noticing that its creation is based on some strong foundations. You can hear a lot of interesting inspirations in here. As far as instruments are concerned the associations with Paradise Lost ("Host" album), Depeche Mode, Mazzy Star, Massive Attack and Goldfrapp come to your mind. Goosia's voice sometimes sounds like Tori Amos', sometimes like Elizabeth Fraser's and you could even find some more names, but we can be sure that her singing is moving and charismatic.
