Solo records can have a turn in them that could turn you off of an act’s sound. Coming from a band and going solo can cause an artist to grow as well. For Ex-Hex guitarist Mary Timony she sounds like she’s grown for her new solo record. That new record Untame the Tiger is as open and easy going as it gets while her first single “Dominoes” rocks on all levels. Stream the new song below.
The opening riffs hold a magic within them. Her vocals pull forward and pull you in to their presence. The way she blends different sounds is extraordinary. There’s more here than you may realize. The deep flows and the upbeat guitar give you lots of depth while she takes things further than you’d expect. The echo on her vocals just adds to the song’s sound.
The song can be heard above or wherever you stream music. Untame the Tiger is available for preorder from Merge Records before it drops on February 23. Mary Timony is on tour starting February 28 in Baltimore, MD at Ottobar until March 30 at Constellation Room in Santa Ana, CA. Her dates can be found here.
