“MARY TREMbLES are adventurous and sharp! They play edgy, jittery guitars, they play smooth arched up rock, they play fat dirty bass, and it’s all really great. Their range is broad and they make it look fucking easy…” – Rave Magazine
“…Like The Cars with angst” – Time Off Magazine
MARY TREMbLES combine sparseness with menacing intensity and melodic pop hooks. The Brisbane, Australia based 3 piece was actually born in Los Angeles. Founding member and principal songwriter Skritch (Tex Perkins’ Dark Horses) was chatting with Damon Cox (Intercooler) over drinks at The Viper Room after an Intercooler show. (Skritch was on live sound duties for Intercooler on their US tour).
Both agreed they needed an additional creative outlet and Skritch had a swag of songs which were screaming to be heard. Upon their return to Brisbane they called upon longtime friend Duey Coert and the line-up was complete.
This was June 2005. The outfit spent months in the rehearsal room refining their sound and are itching to share it. They have also completed a 7 song mini-album entitled ‘ps…situation’, which was released in June 2006. The opening track ‘Scene From Below’ was instantly added to medium rotation on triple j radio and were chosen by the station as ‘Next Crop’ artists during Ausmusic month 2006. Previous Next Crop acts include Wolfmother, Josh Pyke and Wolf & Cub. More than just a side project, MARY TREMbLES is building a strong reputation for their dynamic live shows.
