Listen: Red Axes' new single "Goodbye Mary" is a tongue-in-cheek break-up track
“Sometimes you have to leave in order to be more present,” say Red Axes on the meaning of their latest single.
“Sometimes you have to leave in order to be more present,” say Red Axes on the meaning of their latest single ‘Goodbye Mary’. Taken from their forthcoming album One More City on fabric Originals, ’Goodbye Mary’, is a breakup song about departing a relationship; but musically the track sees the duo returning to the jamming, rough-edged post-punk ethos that first kicked off their own creative collaboration.
Inspired by 80s post-punk and new wave, the track features angular guitars and rare vocals from Red Axes themselves. It's tongue-in-cheek, and captures the raw fidelity that the pair do so well.
“Goodbye Mary is a farewell song to a dear friend. Breaking up is a tough choice.... To the love of fuzz, to the love of songs and to a beating heart." – Red Axes
