Highline is excited to be releasing Mary Epworth’s Dream Life in North America! The release comes on the heels of Mary’s first national tour, supporting the Welcome to Night Vale podcast for 36 dates across the country.
Mary has been making significant waves in her home country since releasing Dream Life in the UK on her own label, Hand Of Glory. Overwhelming radio support has included 3 singles playlisted on BBC 6 Music and ‘Black Doe’ picked as BBC Radio 1’s Hottest Record In The World. Much praise has come from national press, including Q magazine calling the album “Psych pop splendour… Experimentalism, melody and narrative co-existing in appealing balance” and Record Collector awarding the album five stars and hailing it as “A work of bracing originality… Immaculately sung and graced throughout with intelligent, song-serving arrangements and inspired production touches.” This attention has led to Mary and her band performing sold-out shows in the UK including the Royal Albert Hall Elgar Room in London. Recently Mary joined Boy George, Bernard Butler, Mark King and Tim Burgess to form a one-off supergroup at the Liverpool International Music Festival.
Dream Life hits the shops on CD and vinyl on May 19th, and will be available digitally from April 7th.
