POTTERY SHARE NEW SINGLE “LADY SOLINAS” + DETAIL DEBUT EP ‘NO. 1’ – OUT MAY 10TH VIA PARTISAN

Montreal-based 5-piece Pottery have shared new single “Lady Solinas” (w/ music video featuring animation from drummer Paul Jacobs) and confirmed details for their debut EP ‘No. 1’ – out May 10th via Partisan Records.

LISTEN: “Lady Solinas”

Lead singer Austin Boylan explains: “‘Lady Solinas’ is a satirical take on the story of Andy Warhol’s shooter, Valerie Solanas (Warhol’s writer of the screenplay “UP YOUR ASS”, also the writer of “SCUM Manifesto”). The story is used to consider the power of passion in artists and its effect on their mental condition. Although the lyrics hold a serious message, the approach to convey it is ultimately comedic.”

Pottery recorded ‘No. 1’ over just two nights, cut live to tape, some tracks only requiring one take. The songs touch on post-punk, pop, dance, and the band credits Orange Juice, Josef K and Devo as primary influences. It’s shrill, jarring at times, with a hypnotic quality that pulls a harmony out of the discord. “Lady Solinas” is the follow up to their debut single “Hank Williams,” which was spotlighted by Gorilla vs. BearFaderStereogum + more.

The band has supported Parquet Courts and Thee Oh Sees, and next month they’ll begin a North American run with Viagra Boys which will include a stop at SXSW. Full routing below, newly added UK/EU dates are in bold and on sale now. Full SXSW schedule coming soon.
