Novella
Mary’s Gun Italian Beach Babes 7”

Article written by Ged M - Jan 23, 2013

novella_marys_gun.jpg
The latest single by the South London trio, following their brilliant EP, is yet another keeper. ‘Mary’s Gun’ is hazy grunge pop with a fast, pumping rhythm redolent of My Bloody Valentine, and a proper story to go with it: about how Mary Weiss of the Shangri Las was stalker-scared into carrying a pistol. It has a chorus as intoxicating as Guided By Voices while Suki Sou’s bass is as imperious as Kim Deal at her Pixies peak. ‘Look It In The Eye’ starts at a comedown rhythm, filled with regret - “I know nothing ever turns out the way you want” - and suddenly it supernovas into a Sonic Youth guitar groove. It’s another formidable release from an awesomely good and getting-even-better band.
