THE MARY ONETTES


Sweden's THE MARY ONETTES hail from Hovslatt. In my neverending quest to educate the world on the geography of Sweden, I am here to tell you that Hovslatt is approximately six miles SSW of Jonkoping and approximately 43 miles SE of Falkoping. So that should pretty much clear THAT up.

Now then... the Mary Onettes unapologetically trace their sound back to the '80s (ahem! please refer to previous post). They do not, however, sound like ERASURE. More of an ECHO & THE BUNNYMEN thing, I would say. Well... sort of. Occasionally, LLOYD COLE & THE COMMOTIONS and/or THE GO-BETWEENS (see: "Pleasure Songs") seem to insinuate themselves in there. A modern-day comparison might be something along the lines of STELLASTAR*. Anyway, you can draw your own comparisons/conclusions....

The Mary Onettes' self-titled, debut full-length was released earlier this month and can be purchased [
