Mac DeMarco was born on April 30, 1990 in Duncan, British Columbia, and raised in Edmonton, Alberta. The Canadian musician started his first music project after he graduated from high school in Edmonton in 2008, he moved to Vancouver. Living in the Killarney neighbourhood, he released a self-produced album, Heat Wave, calling himself Makeout Videotape in 2009.
In early 2012, he released an EP titled Rock and Roll Nightclub. The four-track-recorded album features skits and slowed-down vocals. It impressed his new label, “Captured Tracks”, enough that they agreed to release a full-length album. This release, entitled 2, was received well by critics, garnering a “Best New Music” designation from Pitchfork Media. One of his songs, “Moving Like Mike”, was licensed by U.S. retail outlet Target for a commercial.
On January 21, 2014, DeMarco announced the release of his upcoming second album, Salad Days, along with debuting the lead single “Passing Out Pieces.” The record was released on April 1, 2014, and again received the “Best New Music” designation from Pitchfork.
