On that day, the band will also be releasing a new song/video — "Take Something."
Their first record, the 7-track EP titled Ginger, came out in December 2019. In an interview with Loser Zine last year, the three described Ginger as a collection of everyday experiences.
"A common theme recurring throughout the album is social anxiety, and the obstacles that come along with it, as well as the boredom that erupts from the monotony of high school." (A fresh topic, as Helena and Mikaela, both 17, are finishing up high school.)
Since then, Hello Mary has been working on songs for a new record... perhaps some of that unreleased material will get a sneak preview at Bowery Electric.
The other day, EVG contributor Stacie Joy spent part of an afternoon with the band as they strolled around the East Village. (Stella's parents, Charles Branstool and Christy Davis, co-own Exit9 Gift Emporium on Avenue A. Christy herself is an accomplished percussionist. She plays drums for Gold, who's also on the bill on May 21.)
On the walk, Hello Mary and Stacie talked about COVID-19 vaccines, strong women and role models. And they had a really good time... here. (On the first Friday of the month, Bandcamp waives their revenue share, so bands receive all the profits.)
The video here from last spring is for Ginger's title track...
