“Always Gonna Be The Same” Mary Jane Dunphe

Mary Jane Dunphe recently announced her debut solo album, Stage of Love, due out August 18th from Pop Wig Records, ahead of the album’s arrival, Dunphe is sharing her new single “Always Gonna Be The Same.”

For years Dunphe has been at the forefront of exciting underground music with acclaimed releases in projects like Vexx, CCFX, Gen Pop, County Liners, and more, and now she’s at the start of a compelling new chapter with, Stage of Love. The album showcases Dunphe’s versatile songwriting, which coalesces pulsating drum machines, shimmering synths and guitars, and her singular voice into ten highly danceable avant-pop songs. “Always Gonna Be The Same” follows lead single and title track “Stage of Love.”

“”Always Gonna Be The Same” is like a collage of feelings and thoughts and things said to me during a very hard moment of my life in 2021. I was dealing with health problems with my teeth which grew into an awful infection that caused me to have to get multiple surgeries and even lose my voice for almost a year. All the while my personal life was going through a huge painful upheaval. It was the most internal reflection of the external I have ever had. While I was in the first emergency surgery the dental surgeon shouted at me, Open up your eyes, you are in control!’ I was panicking and choking on everything and they couldn’t numb me because my tissue wouldn’t take it. It was horrific but also a wake up call. And connects back always to this idea of breathing into things that were causing me extreme pain. And that giving up or more over letting go can actually be a victorious act. I don’t have to hold onto the pain in order to honor my journey, I can release it and everything else that doesn’t serve my growth, without grudge. It’s about forgiving yourself for getting hurt.” from Mary Jane Dunphe
