Pip Hall - 'Mary'

A bittersweet throwback to being young and in love, Pip Hall’s ‘Mary’ has got us all yearning (and crying) for more.

For lovers of Wolf Alice, angsty dark-pop, and just about anything slightly sad, Pip Hall succeeds once again to get a solid grasp on the bitter-sweet reminiscence of what it means being young again; the days where nothing and everything mattered, all whilst being underpinned by youthful romance. In her own words, “it’s about being young and not really giving a shit.”

Sounding like the soundtrack to an iconic coming-of-age movie, ‘Mary’ is the first single from her debut album ‘Everything Before’, which is due for release November 9th. Outfitted with gritty, over-driven guitar and lo-fi soundscapes, ‘Mary’ hits home stunning lyrics that we can all wistfully tear up over, such as, “Ripped jeans and shit hair / No money but you don’t care / You took me to the broken house / Where I fell in love for the first time.”

With her debut EP ‘James’ and follow on tracks ‘Ill At Ease’ and ‘Fire’ under her belt, ‘Mary’ proves it can only continue to be onwards and upwards for the mega talented Pip Hall - and let’s hope that her debut album has more pieces of art that we can completely lose ourselves within.
