Today, Philadelphia garage punk 4-piece The Mary Veils have finally released their debut EP Somewhere Over the Rowhome via PNKSLM Recordings.
“Somewhere over the Rowhome is a great blend/showcase of our bands direction. It’s all the musical taste and styles each member loves thrown into the Mary Veils blender. That’s why we’re very excited to put out this EP on PNKSLM because it’s a good mix of what the label has already been known for. Each song on the EP varies stylistically on purpose. We don’t write just punk songs or just garage songs. We love all kinds of different genres. We hope that listeners hear that we’re not just one flavor. I like listening to albums that each song brings something completely different than the one before but it still fits,” the band said about the EP.
Taking their cues from the classic punk of New York Dolls, and Johnny Thunders, the sheer energy and inventiveness of Over the Rowhome’s four tracks also brings to mind the more contemporary likes of Osees and Hot Snakes. “We’re just throwing everything we think is cool into the pot and trying to cook up something with a similar flavor,” says drummer Evan Wall. Somewhere Over the Rowhome, which was mixed by Cory Hanson and seasoned Philly producer Jeff Zeigler.
