Hypnotic, unsettling, intense, angular and dark. Mere Women’s brand of unique post punk makes them one of the most exciting acts currently releasing music in Australia. The Sydney-based four piece are also well known for their fierce live show.
Three albums in, the band have continually explored new song structures in greater depth using a collaborative writing process, with the aim to find new ways of expressing and writing popular music through post-punk. They work to actively break barriers and predictable, unimaginative musical structures that reinforce the status quo of male-dominated popular music.
Their most recent release, ‘Big Skies’, explores themes of women’s experiences over generations and the simultaneous isolation and confinement felt by many women living in regional communities. he songs are haunting, restless and impeccably composed. A claustrophobic journey through wide open spaces.
