With A side 'Wasted' gaining airplay and critical acclaim from radio stations, music publications and bloggers across the world, we're really pleased to bring you the B side 'You Knew You Knew'.
Both tracks will be available as digital downloads from Monday 22nd September. The single launch takes place on Saturday 20th September at The Tiger Lounge, Cooper Street, Manchester, with support from Black Grape's Kermit. Tickets are £5 and are available from Skiddle.
Mary Joanna & The Southern Electrikk, fronted by the enigmatic Mary Joanna Coogan are a unique blend of dark synths, biting guitars and gritty bass lines interlaced with Mary’s soft yet irresistibly sinister vocals.
Formed in Manchester, Mary Joanna is backed by Rikki Turner (Paris Angels) on keys, Steven Tatji (Paris Angels, Rude Club) on bass, Spencer Birtwhistle (Interstella, The Fall) on drums, Stephen Evans (Twisted Wheel) on guitar and newcomer Zack Davies also on guitar.
Although the band have performed just a handful of gigs in their home city, they’ve already been invited to appear at venues across the UK, thanks to their effortlessly cool blend of Post Punk, Psychedelia, Electronica, Dream Pop and Krautrock.
Wasted is their debut single.
