The musical influences are really broad ranging from contemporary artists, classics, to ethnical and world music and the current sound can fall in the same category of Colin Meloy and The Decemberists, Iron and Wine, Sufjan Stevens, Beirut. The man behind the project is Raimonds Gusarevs who is known on a local scale for his involvement in skateboarding scene. In 2003 he created a first latvian skateboard brand Treesounds and made several videos the most successful of which was Skateradio "Videoparade" in 2006. Musically Raimonds Gusarevs involved himself at the age of 14 by forming a punk/hardcore band Take up Arm, which later transformed into Shove-it.

The band existed for 4 years (1996 - 2000) and never released any recording. After traveling India for a while in the beginning of 2008 El Mars has made an attempt to record a full length album. It is being recorded just with a couple of mics and mbox. El Mars debut album Bare Love to Bare Soul is anticipated in December 2008.
