The London trio are also hosting a launch party at Brixton Windmill to celebrate the release.
Consisting of guitarist and vocalist Clari Freeman-Taylor, bassist and viola player Saya Barbaglia and drummer David Addison, mary in the junkyard have garnered attention on the live scene. Now they’re releasing their debut single ‘Tuesday’, a breathy and hard-hitting alt track.
Their self-directed music video shows gritty scenes from London featuring the trio wandering around the streets. A mysterious figure occupies the banks of a river and follows the band, adding to the eeriness of ‘Tuesday’.
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 release of ‘Tuesday’ also marks mary in the junkyard’s partnership with AMF (or All My Friends) Records, whose roster also includes Aby Coulibaly and Christian Alexander.
