Mac DeMarco offers to marry anyone who wants to move to Canada following Trump election win

Canadian musician makes the offer in Instagram post

Mac DeMarco has suggested that he will marry anyone looking to move to Canada after Donald Trump’s shock US election win.

Billionaire TV personality-turned-politician Trump beat Hillary Clinton in the race for the White House overnight with many distraught Americans contemplating leaving the country after the result. Canada’s immigration website appeared to go down after being overloaded with users.

Now Canadian musician DeMarco has taken to Instagram to post a photo of an engagement ring, along with the caption: “Trying to move to #Canada?”

DeMarco recently announced two London gigs for 2017. He will play two headline shows at O2 Academy Brixton on May 30 and 31.

His last proper album ‘Salad Days’ came Number Two in NME’s Albums Of 2014 list. He followed it with his ‘Another One’ mini-album in August 2015.

DeMarco recently responded to rumours that he would collaborate with MGMT, after he was pictured in the studio with MGMT’s Andrew VanWyngarden.

“He lives in the same neighborhood as me, so we’re homies,” DeMarco told Spin. “I don’t know, maybe I should leave it as a mystery. I’m not recording on any MGMT albums, just my own record, but who knows?”

When asked where his songwriting inspiration stems from, DeMarco responded that “they just pop up” and end up being about his life, or his friends, or his experiences.

“And it’s weird because you always have these experiences, and only certain times are you able to manifest these thoughts into a piece of something. So, I don’t understand it. But that’s the beauty of it, though,” he continued.
