Blisters In The Pit Of My Heart


lp + download

Released: 8th Jul 2016


energetic, impassioned power pop with intricate vocal interplay and lush four-part harmonies, informed by 90s indie rock and contemporary garage punk.

Produced again by MJ from Hookworms, the album explores the difficulties in staying political, staying passionate and staying punk over the course of eleven expertly crafted pop songs. If the band’s first album, 'Courting Strong', was about punks growing up, then 'Blisters In The Pit Of My Heart' is about grown-ups staying punk. It's an album about trying to stay creative and passionate and making the most of everything in spite of the many obstacles that get in the way. for fans of joanna gruesome, milky wimpshake and the julie ruin. "it's addictive, delirious and and madcap, Martha turning anxiety into exuberance." - 7/10 uncut
