Berlin-based American trio Meagre Martin straddles psychedelic-tinged folk rock with their latest single ‘TBD (The Big Death)’. It starts off lightly with crisp guitars, tight drums and a heady vocal from lead songwriter Sarah Martin. The band initially were thrown together for a gig opportunity to support Sarah but the gig never happened. Through their jamming sessions in 2021, they found that their jams together became a means of survival during difficult times and the band formed as an actual entity shortly after.
‘TPD (The Big Death)’ is the final single from their debut album ‘Gut Punch’ which comes out on the 10th November. Meagre Martin says the track is about the fear of uncertainty and accepting death – both personally and environmentally. Whilst this single is a tightly wound track that reminds me of Big Thief with some added psyche rock elements, the album covers other subgenres of rock. Expect some shoegaze, 90s indie and some ‘faux country’.
