Ireland’s M(h)aol bring their post-punk to the fore with ‘No One Ever Talks To US’, taken from their debut EP “Gender Studies.”
After the release of title track ‘Gender Studies,’ new single ‘No One Ever Talks To Us’ approaches the significance of being a majority of females in a band, which has its own breakthrough in a genre known for groups comprised mostly of men, and feeling fatigued of the discussion which has been around for some time.
Singer Róisín Nic Ghearailt says, “’ ‘No One Ever Talks To Us’ is an amalgamation of our own personal experiences of being in a predominantly female band in a predominantly male genre, but also a synthesis of the autobiographical experiences of Carrie Brownstein, Kim Gordon, Kathleen Hanna, etc., and how so often your value in this industry is based on whether the (men) around you find you attractive. I wanted the vocals to sound in parts like I was bored, which is true. We’ve been having this conversation for decades, and it’s time to move it on.”
There is also a video was made by the band’s own Zoe Greenway, which you can watch here.
M(h)aol will be playing dates in the UK this November, with tickets on sale now here.
