The haunting, apocalyptic new single from Mary Bue certainly captures the current mood. ‘Shit Storm’ and the accompanying video will be released on 17th July – you get to see it here first. It’s taken from the Minneapolis singer-songwriter’s new album, ‘The World is Your Lover’, due to drop on 21st August. The song descends into a screeching, distorted guitar solo by the end, reflecting the unravelling of the world we know and the shit storm we find ourselves in.
Although written back in 2017, the song seems particularly relevant now. Bue says: “It arrived while hiking along the desolate and beautiful Rio Grande Gorge trails outside of Taos, New Mexico, but it has turned out to be a poignant, somewhat clairvoyant song for these times.” Old footage of roaming buffalo, cacti and desolate landscapes reinforce the darkening mood. Mary Bue tells is how it is.
