"Easy Hands" / "Pearl Machine" by The Mary Onettes
Into their third decade together, Sweden's The Mary Onettes are not highly prolific, but when they deliver the results are unfailingly worth the wait. And so we happily welcome their latest single, the two-track "Easy Hands" / "Pearl Machine". The record displays two sides of The Mary Onettes, with the A-side delivering morerobust indie pop with a storyline personal to songwriter Phillip Ekstrom and the life of an artist. "Pearl Machine is a pensive but relaxing listen with a stately pace and spare lyrics that don't make an appearance until well after the two-minute mark. All in all, another treasure from The Mary Onettes.
"Easy Hands" / "Pearl Machine" is released via Stockholm's Labrador.
