The San Marcos-based collective Water on Mars has been vigilant over the past couple of years in regards to shaping their sound and fine-tuning their chemistry as a band. After a run of live shows and a few one-off recordings of singles, Water on Mars is kicking off the summer of 2019 with a brand new EP. The songs are tightly structured, dynamic, melodic, and full of wonderful vocal harmonies that have become a signature of Water on Mars‘ sound. It’s available on all the major streaming services at this time (clicking the cover above will take you to Spotify), so don’t hesitate to look them up and give them some streaming love!
Not only does San Marcos possess a vivid artistic and creative community, it also has a community full of supportive people that provide assistance for most anyone in any situation. One of the more well-known and respected San Marcos institutions is the Hays-Caldwell Women’s Center, a non-profit organization to help victims of domestic abuse and violence. Normally, Fem-Fest puts together an event as a fundraiser to help, but due to logistics, the 2019 event did not come together. Luckily, a laundry list of talented San Martians chipped in a song for a fundraising compilation : Winter Fires, Youngsville, Water On Mars, Sp_aces, Elevaded, Plain Zane, Shelly Webster, Cameron Elise, Lizzie Karr, Nix Nova, and Marcus Morales all contributed songs in hopes that the compilation can raise a sizable donation. If you’re looking to help support, stop by the Bandcamp page and grab a copy… there are people out there that will certainly appreciate it.
