"Mark Thales - Ladybug"

People are obsessed with talking about the death of rock n’ roll. We should know. We do it quite often on this site. But, can you really kill something that should take so little effort to produce? The business of selling records and the image of rockstars may be under threat, but I doubt we’ll ever run into a true shortage of good songs.

Case in point, Mark Thales. A good rock song works just like a good joke. It needs to balance the surprise of the punch-line with the familiarity of the subject it discusses. Just like good jokes, good songs are floating about, and, regardless of the myth-making of the music industry, anyone can catch a handful of them if lucky and tuned in.

Mr Thales just caught one with Ladybug. Don’t ignore it just because it wasn’t recommended to you by a big streaming service, the advertising world, or radio. It’s as fresh-sounding, naive, and joyous as a long-lost demo for the Strokes’ first album. It’s clever, simple, and seems to have been torn out of the very fabric of rock n’ roll.

Do yourself a favour and hear this guy out. You may just end up discovering something great that carries little of the media machine’s odour about it. - Alt77 Alternative Music Blog


Still working on that hot first release.



Mark Thales is an independent musician based out of Oregon, USA.  After playing in bands for some time, Mark decided to go the solo route in early 2020.  After releasing several singles in 2020, Mark recently released an EP titled "It's OK", an ode to the indie and alternative rock that has long inspired him.  Mark's sound is familiar and easy to digest while maintaining a distinct, original take on the genre.  Now that he has some songs building up in his discography, the next step for Mark is to begin booking gigs (as COVID restrictions allow) and continue to craft new material to record and share with the world.  Mark Thales is up and coming artist you don't want to miss.
