‘The Drip’, due out on Friday June 18, marks Mary’s second solo EP following ‘The Piss, The Perfume’ which dropped early last year.
Watch the ‘Young & Stupid’ music video, directed by Michael Ridley, below.
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.”
