In a press statement, Mary revealed that ‘Young & Stupid’ was inspired by a trip to the family home of her partner, Johnny Took of DMA’S, where she heard a landline phone ring.

“I hadn’t realised they even had a landline. It was like a ghost calling through the hallway with that old school ring,” she said.

“‘Who the hell even calls you on that?’ I asked. ‘Only Nana,’ my partner replied. As it was in the middle of the worst part of COVID-19, there was a certain vibe around; of everything that had been taken for granted; of the preciousness of life and the fragility of the old, mixed with a pronounced concern with where technology was going to take us.

“We reflected on the probability that when the last landlines in the world stopped ringing it would only be because a certain generation was gone.”

Next weekend, Mary will take part in Sydney’s 24-Hour Party, taking place across a string of different venues in the city alongside Banoffee, KLP, Stevan and more.

Earlier this year, Mary made her solo debut on triple j’s ‘Like A Version’ segment, delivering a cover of Lana Del Rey‘s ‘Chemtrails Over The Country Club’.
