Sarah Mary Chadwick - "Drinkin' on a Tuesday"

When I see a song title like "Drinkin' on a Tuesday," I assume the song is going to be country. But the latest from New Zealand born, Melbourne based multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, visual artist, and songwriter Sarah Mary Chadwick can hardly be described by any Americana based genre. Her new single of that title is an experimental singer/songwriter track. It follows some basic song structures, but mostly just sort of ambles along as it wants with non-typical instrumentation and melodies. If forced to compare "Drinkin' on a Tuesday" to other artists, I'd say it's a mixture of Daniel Johnston and Kate Bush.

Sarah Mary Chadwick says of her latest single:

“This is a reverse resilience song, cause essentially it’s about bouncing back, but in the most lonely blinding searing way possible. It's like the interior of a drunk’s mind, everything is bright and tragic and huge and dark and silent and everybody is new and bright.  And all your jokes always land, every single one.”

You can watch the video for "Drinkin' on a Tuesday" below. Messages to God is due out September 15 on Kill Rock Stars, and is available for pre-order here. For more on Sarah Mary Chadwick, check out the artist on Facebook and Instagram.
