ANNOUNCES SOLO DEBUT EP ‘THE PISS, THE PERFUME’ OUT 17 JANUARY 2020
SHARES SECOND TRACK ‘ORDINARY ME’
Acclaimed Australian artist Hayley Mary has already made waves with her debut single ‘The Piss, The Perfume’, which premiered via triple j and Flood Magazine and saw immediate global support.
Now Hayley Mary announces her debut EP The Piss, The Perfumewhich follows on January 17th. To mark the occasion, Hayley has released ‘Ordinary Me’, a captivating ballad inspired by Celtic storytelling tales.
Reminiscent of early Dolly Parton hits, ‘Ordinary Me’ is a gentle lullaby that draws on the traditional music of Hayley’s Scottish heritage. The way she warbles the word ‘mind’ – “As it goes on and on forever/Ordinary me, but with you on my mind” – adds an element of familiarity to a song that is so unique to the singer.
The Scottish landscape turned out to be a large source of inspiration for Hayley’s debut EP. Most of the EP was written while Hayley was working in Smith’s Deli, “the best caff, according to one local taxi driver, in Edinburgh.” She and her partner, Johnny relocated to the Scottish capital last year to live “the simple life” and explore the countryside of Hayley’s birthplace. “I got very in touch with my heritage living there and feel like I grew into myself a lot.”
Produced by Scott Horscroft (Silverchair, The Presets, Tkay Maidza, Middle Kids), The Piss, The Perfume fuses Americana, Australiana and punk song-writing with Motown inspired rhythms and soaring vocal style, resulting in a heartfelt collection of songs that pack a punch.
With the release of ‘Ordinary Me’ and instant success of ‘The Piss, The Perfume’, combined with the hugely successful 10-date regional tour with Alex Lahey that saw Hayley test out new material on live audiences, Hayley Mary continues to grow her list of global achievement and status as mega star.
