Indie-pop artist Martin Mackie has unveiled his new single ‘Drunk For Fifteen Years’ taken from his forthcoming E.P. Temperance Songs.
Released via independent record label Flaming June and featuring alternative songwriter Katie Kim on guest vocals, ‘Drunk For Fifteen Years’ is joyously fast-moving piece of indie-pop.
Constantly evolving and adding to its growing spectrum. The song centres around a vocal back and forth between Mackie and Kim. Using the distinct timbre of each of the performers voices, the strong storytelling aspect of the track is defined clearly.
Supported by swirling organ, straight-to-the-point guitar and an infectious chorus, these introspective lyrics are given a vibrant undercurrent that ensures the song is never engulfed in sorrow. And instead off-sets expectations with the sheer energy of the music coupled with the singers nuanced performances.
Taken from Martin Mackie’s upcoming E.P. Temperance Songs, ‘Drunk For Fifteen Years’ (feat. Katie Kim) will be release on August 14th.
