Marizane is a Los Angeles-based retro-indie rock band that has been compared to classic acts such as the Beatles, Queen, and David Bowie as well as contemporaries such as Dr. Dog and Of Montreal. Once produced by legendary rock producer Tony Visconti (Bowie, T-Rex, Moody Blues), they wrote/produced/performed the title track to "Mayor of the Sunset Strip" (DJ Rodney Bingenheimer biopic). New release "Cosmosis" welcomes special musical guests such as Nancy Wilson (Heart), Gilby Clarke (Guns 'n Roses), Wondermints and members of the Brian Wilson band.

"Cosmosis is an experimental, sparkling gem of an album juxtaposed alongside organic, honest and whimsical lyrics and melodies."
"... it's absolutely brilliant stuff, and by far my favourite record of the year ..."
"... this retro-futuristic band is damed fun to listen to ... "
