Mere Women sound as though they’re from Melbourne. But instead they’re from Sydney. With those big ragged guitar lines, it sounds as though some ferocious vocal should begin. But instead there’s Amy and Katrina’s vocal takes sitting soft and in contrast to that instrumentation.
It’s this contradiction that I find so exciting about Mere Women. The three piece have kicked around for a little while, and have their 2nd album Your Town coming out next month (July 25). The excellent ‘Our Street’ is the first cut. It’s pushy and driving, but with just enough restraint to let the vocals guide the way.
If it sounds like your thing, then make sure you check ’em out on their run of dates.
