TUNE Madonnatron - Mermaids
MADONNATRON releases new single ‘Mermaids’ via Trashmouth Records on 11th May.
Following the release of their eponymously-titled debut album, MADONNATRON have sidled furtively back into the studio where they are to be found fervently crafting their next onslaught of sounds.
Of these, ‘Mermaids’ is the first to emerge, exciting an appetite for twisted recollections. A song about secret things. The diary entry that you have ripped out and burned while the house was sleeping. The saltier experiences that leave you with a stagger or a swagger although it will remain forever unclear which.
A tonic for this disquiet, the Rive Gauche familiarity of B-Side ‘Ich Liebe Dich’ will sooth your guilt like an amorous twenty something Marlene Dietrich engulfing you in budget pink sateen. Both tracks, we are assured, are made with love.
Poised to embark on their first UK headline tour this year, with their atmospheric raw, and confrontational live shows these sirens will mercilessly lure you onto the rocks…March: Heartbreakers Southampton (9th), Hope & Ruin, Brighton (15th), District Liverpool (16th), Soup Kitchen Manchester (17th), The Moon Cardiff (23rd), Hy-Brasil Bristol (24th) April: Tom Thumb Theatre Margate (6th), The Washington Sheffield (7th), Rough Trade Nottingham (8th), Sneaky Pete’s Edinburgh (12th), Broadcast Glasgow (13th), The Lexington London (18th),
