Mary in the Junkyard - "marble arch"

You are going to need to mentally prepare yourself before listening to the latest single from Mary in the Junkyard, because this one is going to floor you. The London based trio just released a new single, and "marble arch" is nearly impossibly captivating. It's a melodic indie rock song that combines so many elements that it just shouldn't work. There are simply too many subgenres and sounds represented here, but Mary in the Junkyard combine them all into one cohesive and completely fresh sound. Sure, there are parts of the song that remind me of contemporaries like Horsegirl, but I'm also reminded of an artist like Lady Lamb. Aside from all of that, I'm hearing parts that remind me of a 90's artist like Tori Amos, and maybe even a legend like Joni Mitchell. "marble arch" is the type of song that reminds me of why I've been doing this for nearly eleven years. Sharing a song like this is an absolute pleasure, and I can't wait for all of you to hear it.

Vocalist Clari Freeman-Taylor says of her band's latest song:

“I wrote the words to marble arch in the back of the book 'wise children' under the actual marble arch, its about the intense relationship between sisters, and leaving home and not wanting to come back.”
