Melding punk-rock with up-beat alternative rock, Martha – hailing from an English village called Pity Me – is anything but pity worthy. Sadie Bell said, “The straight-edge anarchist vegans boast an eclectic taste that runs the gamut from punk to indie-pop to classic rock, and it all bleeds through on new single ‘Goldman’s Detective Agency’” (Stereogum).

2.  Background quote c/o DIY from Drummer Nathan Griffin:

“Playing music is something that is really important to all of us, but it’s also something that takes a lot of time and energy and emotional strain. This record is for everyone who leads a secret double life, devoting every weekend, every day of annual leave, all of their disposable income, every drop of creative energy to something as ethereal as music and art. It’s about persevering and still doing the things you love, even when most normal people can’t understand why on earth you do it” (Stereogum).

3.  Tour Dates:

Martha currently has one event scheduled for Friday 2 September 2016 at the End of the Road Festival, Larmer Tree Gardens in Salisbury, UK. Click HERE to purchase a ticket through SongKick.
