(September 14th, 2016) – Columbus, Ohio-based singer-songwriter Mary Lynn has released a nostalgic video for her new single “Plans” from her sophomore LP My Animal Out 9/23 on Anyway Records. The premiere was hosted by The LP Collective, who said the song has “a great beat and a great story.” “Plans” is a trip through time with footage of one of Mary Lynn’s first birthdays interspersed with surreal, psychedelic and at times silly backdrop drops.
“Plans is one of my favorite songs I’ve ever written,” Mary says about the track. “It’s about believing in those moments where you suddenly feel like you’re right where you need to be, and everything in your whole life has happened for a reason.”
About Mary Lynn
Based out of Columbus, OH, Singer-Songwriter Mary Lynn is armed with a rock band, her heart, and a force of pop energy. Her debut release on Anyway Records proves she has the superpower ability to spin a phrase with the catchiest hooks imaginable.
Her former band of nearly a decade, This Is My Suitcase, released three records of noise-inflected art pop before the band decided to move on, leaving Mary Lynn to pursue her own music. Following up from the heartfelt pop diary that was her first solo album, Familiar Things & Places, her upcoming release strikes a louder, braver pose.
Drenched in beautiful melodies and vulnerability, “My Animal” dives confidently into deep emotional territory while maintaining a unique pop-rock energy that consistently surprises. Her strong melodies soar above the painful experiences that birthed them; all while sticking to listener’s minds like glue. Quite simply, “My Animal” is full of terrific pop-rock-and-roll hits.
Mary Lynn partnered with mixing engineer Bill Moriarty (Man Man, Dr Dog) to help bring “My Animal” into the true sonic animal it is. And Mary Lynn says her music is just what she strives to be: “Real; Honest; Human; Myself.”
My Animal will be nationally released on September 23rd, 2016 through Anyway Records.
