Experimental political pop artist Mary Ocher returns to European stages with an exceptional new record: "Approaching Singularity: Music for The End of Time".
The album is accompanied by an essay on authoritarianism, unruly technology and the various political and ethical implications of the impending changes on humankind, while the new recordings feature collaborations with Barry Burns (Mogwai), Red Axes, Les Trucs, composer Roberto Cacciapaglia, pieces with her two drummers Your Government, and a homage to electronic music pioneer Delia Derbyshire.

Over the past decade and a half Mary has been persistently creating passionate, uncompromising work, raw, thought provoking, socially and creatively pushing against the current, dealing with subjects of authority, identity and conflict. Her work is as enchanting as it is polarizing, ranging from traditional folk to raw 60s garage, ambient with ethereal vocals and abstract synths, to experimental pop with African and South American rhythms when performing with her drummers (Your Government).

Mary toured in 40 countries with previous releases, the last of which were recorded with H.J. Irmler of Krautrock pioneers Faust and feature collaborations with Felix Kubin, Die Tödliche Doris and Julia Kent. Most recently she was invited by Animal Collective to perform at Le Guess Who? festival, released a Ukraine charity EP and curated a compilation for girls' education in Afghanistan.

Artist socials:

Echo, Bravo are a quintet from Copenhagen. They play a mixture

of genres, ranging from post-punk and noise-rock to dance music and

freejazz. The vibe at their concerts is a grim cocktail of bass-driven chaos,

noisy drone-feedback, crooked guitar riffs and improvisation. Together with

the crowd, the band creates a nice, expressive and inclusive environment.

The atmosphere becomes circus-like, when the raw vocals' surreal poetry

merges with bass, drums, guitar and trumpet in a catchy sound of noise, words

and sweet melodies.
