About this album

Mary and The Boy present their highly anticipated first official album through Low Impedance Recordings.

Essentially a trio (Mary, The Boy and the dancer Exotic), they tread in grim, noisy and somewhat controversial territorries armed with a venomous punk attitude. Themes of vulgar sexuality, existential terror and social disintegration rise behind walls of abused synthlines and vocal chords stretched to their limits. While undeniably dark, the album contains a great deal of (self) sarcasm, playfulness and a melodic sensibility that borrows a lot from retro pop and cabaret music. Make no mistake though, this is not pop in the traditional sense, but more of a distorted, collapsing version of it.

All the pieces were performed entirely live, sounding lo-fi, raw, aggresive and true to the band’s artistic vision. Piano-punk, brutal-pop, industrial-cabaret? Name it what you will. Love them or hate them? Whatever. The fact is Mary and The Boy are praying for your sins in their distinctive fashion.
