“mary in the junkyard,” consisting of guitarist and vocalist Clari Freeman-Taylor, bassist and viola player Saya Barbaglia, and drummer David Addison, has released their debut single ‘Tuesday’.
For those who haven’t caught them live yet, this serves as an introduction to their off-kilter brand of avant-post punk. It’s mesmerizing, propelled by an atmosphere of confusion and chaotic creeping menace.
Speaking about ‘Tuesday’, Freeman-Taylor said: “I wrote ‘Tuesday’ when I was first experiencing life in a city and was feeling very small. It’s so easy to be swept along with the bustle and noise and feel like a worker ant amidst thousands of others. I wanted to write about my yearning for chaos and realness – we all have wildness within us that we might be suppressing and we shouldn’t feel like aliens because of it.”
The band will be playing a special sold-out single launch show tonight (3 October) at Brixton Windmill and is on the bill at Live At Leeds and Left Of The Dial later this year.
