OUR DEBUT EP, ‘JOY IMPORTED FROM A HAPPIER AGE’ IS OUT NOW ON GROOVE BOUND RECORDS
WELCOME TO THE ROARING 20s! Groove-based indie pop meets Motown soul revue mish-mashed potatoes shot through with the finest electro delicacies, all washed down with a pint of slacker funk.
Disco Mary are an Indie Pop Supergroup collective taking their cue from The Avalanches, The Go! Team, Superorganism, Apples In Stereo and Gorillaz. Blending soul music, indie rock, electro-pop, funky basslines and big beats, Disco Mary create a sound that paves the way for a post-Covid world of joy, partying and hedonism. Social scientists say that once we’re over the pandemic, the Roaring 20s is making a comeback. If that’s the case, then Disco Mary will be leading the charge with the sound of a liberated world seeking all the good vibes that life has to offer.
‘Joy Imported From A Happier Age’ and lead single ‘Kid’s Games’ are released in the same week as band member Kev Sherry’s acclaimed and controversial graphic novel, ‘Painted.’ The song shares similar themes with the much lauded comic book and stands as a companion piece to it. ‘Painted’ was co-created with Helen Mullane, writer of UK musician Graham Coxon’s new graphic novel, ‘Superstate’.
Disco Mary’s previous two singles have had significant radio success with BBC 6 Music, BBC Introducing Scotland, BBC Radio Scotland (‘Single of The Week’), Amazing Radio (UK & USA), been premiered on UK television on Made In Chelsea (E4) season finale, and added to U.S. culture magazine Slate.com’s coveted ‘Summer Strut 2021’ playlist alongside major established artists.
Disco Mary’s summer good vibes have found success on the Dutch airwaves, getting playlisted on multiple mainstream radio stations in the Netherlands (Radio Veronica, NPO Radio 2, 3FM and KINK), and have also picked up editorial playlist support from Spotify. Dutch-born singer charly haze has been giving Disco Mary radio interviews in her native tongue and was recently featured in Dutch Cosmopolitan magazine.
Lead single ‘Kids Games’ was written and recorded over lockdown. Lyrically it contrasts the innocence of youthful game playing with the realities of adult relationships. It was one of the first songs that Glasgow-based Kev and London-based charly worked on together. The duo have still never met in person, (thanks to the pandemic) with all Disco Mary work happening remotely, from recording sessions to photoshoots and interviews.
