Agent M is an alternative rock band with post punk, garage rock and new wave influences. The band was formed in Tallinn, Estonia in 2004 by guitarist/songwriter Marten Vill. First recordings were done with Marten himself on vocals, but soon this role was taken over with Merili Varik, who became the lead vocalist during the first era of the band. After heavy radioplay of their song "7 surmapattu" ("7 Deadly Sins"), a live band was soon put together consisting of Reimo Va (bass, also in J.M.K.E.), Märten Rodes (guitar), Mihkel Kupits (drums) and Margus Tammela (keyboards, also in Under Marié).
