Jazmine Mary Shares Debut Album 'The Licking Of A Tangerine'

Jazmine Mary, formerly Him., has let loose her debut album under the new moniker, and it is overflowing with the kind of emotional indie-folk depths Mary is known for, honed to gloomy perfection. I’m not sure if The Licking Of A Tangerine is an ironic album title, or if it’s more like a suggested food pairing that’ll add a bit of sweetness to Mary’s goosebump-inducing dark folk, now expanded by flittering strings, deep rumbling backing vocals, and baritone sax. New in the mix are bandmate additions Peter Ruddell (Wax Chattels, Sulfate) and Dave Kahn (Marlon Williams, Reb Fountain), as well as Courtney Rodgers on the kit and Aaron Lovich on alto sax, each complimenting Jazmine Mary’s shape shifting vocals in surprising new ways — saxophone chasing her voice in ‘Australia’, plinking piano playing a game of call and response in ‘Dog Happy’, and on ‘Move Me’ eclectic instrumentation sounds like it’s desperately trying and failing to raise spirits. Mary and the new band will be celebrating the album release this Saturday at Wine Cellar (touch wood), have a wee read of what she has to say about the collection here, then scroll down for tickets and nine breathtaking new songs...


”These songs for me feel like a breath of bravery I had to act on quickly, and sharing it is like a slow, pleasant untangling”.
