Martha-Dust, Juice, Bones and Hair



“I am mostly bones, I am mostly liquids, I am mostly air.”



Martha is a band out of Durham, UK and it is kind of funny that no one in the band is named Martha. How’d they come up with that name?

Even though the name is sort of generic, the band’s sound is definitely not. Formed by siblings, Naomi (bass, vocals) and Nathan Griffin (drums, vocals), they are also joined by J. Cairns (guitar, vocals) and Daniel Ellis (guitar, vocals). Their music is pop punk and if you are adventurous, totally entertaining ear listening.  This tune, “Dust, Juice, Bones, and Hair”, is from their recently released album, Courting Strong. It has smashing drums that are perfectly timed with buzzy, driven guitars and enhanced by imaginative, quirky lyrics. It is a jump up and down sound, badly needed for midweek listening.

You’re welcome….

But, honestly, don’t thank me, thank Martha by checking out their facebook page, or listen and buy on Bandcamp.
