Milly Debuts New Single “Marcy”
MILLY have shared “Marcy,” a track off their debut album Eternal Ring, available September 30th via Dangerbird Records (Grandaddy, Swervedriver). Inspired by the rough-hewn, somewhat miraculous vibe of early Pavement records, “Marcy” is a perfect example of the magic captured during the recording process, a track whose frayed edges coalesce into something tight and driving.
“It started off with me learning how to play ‘Trigger Cut’ by Pavement and I just stayed in that tuning.” explains principle songwriter Brendan Dyer, “The guitar playing and overall feel is loosely inspired by Seam’s ‘You’re Driving Me Crazy’ record and there’s definitely some Malkmus worship. Maybe some Sebadoh too. Living in LA can make you easily jaded for all the scenesters you run into at godforsaken bars and I was just tryna take the piss out on all the punishing conversations I’ve had to have. It’s LA and everyone is a smart guy (including myself, maybe).” “Marcy” comes on the heels of previous single “Ring True”

To understand Eternal Ring, you have to go back to Dyer’s childhood. Learning guitar and drums from his uncle, a musician, from the age of ten, Dyer was one of the only young people in his rural Connecticut town interested in anything other than sports and other stereotypical markers of American life. Naturally, Dyer began to gravitate towards emo — the closest thing many teens have to outsider art — as an art form he could identify with, bands like Hawthorne Heights subconsciously laying the groundwork for the music he would make as an adult. “It probably only lasted a year or two that I was interested in that sort of thing, but now I feel like it’s become a thing in my life where it’s like, full circle,” he says. “When we were writing this album, and touring before writing this album, I was reconnecting with a lot of the music that I was listening to in my youth and realizing that there was a reason why I liked this music so much.”
