Mary Joanna & The Southern Electrikk - Wasted (Mexican Bedroom)
|Mary Joanna & The Southern Electrikk - Wasted|
Release Date: 22nd September 2014
If your surname was Coogan and your dad had been in an influential 90s band while your uncle was a Marmite comedian of the modern ages you would probably drop it to see if you could be taken seriously on your own. Such is the case with frontwoman Mary Joanna who is here with a Mancunian supergroup behind her to present her debut single 'Wasted'. The soft shuffle of the drums and gentle guitars are seductive enough but Mary Joanna's vocals are the real winner here as she sings a siren song that essentially says "you will fall in love with me and I will show absolutely no interest in you unless it benefits me to do so". I'm not saying she's a bitch, oh no, it's just that our heroine has already mastered that art of rock'n'roll cool that so many aspire to and never achieve. A muted but intriguing debut, then, but there's more to come here, of that I am sure.
