Marville - Thinking Sense

Marville - Thinking Sense
Marville is a rock two-piece comprising Ash Kerley (songwriter/guitar) and Doug Palmer (drums). The band's size belies their full sound, their tone ranging from haunting introspection to outright aggression. Firm local favourites, they've placed twice in 4ZZZ's Hot 100 with "Outgrown" (#18 in 2013) and "Fickle" (#21 in 2015).

Having received the Billy Thorpe Scholarship in 2017, 2018 will see the release of Marville's second LP Terra Alpha.

Produced by Joe Hammond (Courtney Barnett, Tim Rogers, Jen Cloher, Fraser A. Gorman) at his Pots and Pans studio, Ash Kerley’s muggy, transformative guitar undulates heavily over the record, occasionally (and at time, brutally) propelled by Doug Palmer’s stark drumming. Described by Hammond as “a lifer” when it comes to music, songwriter and Girls Rock camp founder Kerley’s rich, dry vocals parse themes of impatience, headiness, tension and, ultimately, release.

Weighting private, ambient moments (Speak Easy, Making Hay) as heavily as gritty, cacophonous ones (9-Iron, Fickle), Terra Alpha is an unabashedly human record: ever-changing, and wearing its emotions on its hand-painted sleeve.

Terra Alpha’s next single, Thinking Sense, is out February 2018, with the record due for release on March 30 and a metro/regional tour to follow.

About this track...

Written "in a sh**ty share house", Kerley's yawning, powerful vocals parse caustic jabs on Thinking Sense that are just as often aimed at herself. Propelled by relentlessly dirty, crunchy guitar and Palmer's furious drumming, Thinking Sense explores how humans relate to each other when dignity is removed from the equation.
