Quick Before it Melts

If you’ve got time

by  |  November 22, 2012

It’s in her nature to take things slowly says Marie Avery, to the point where it almost appears that she’s standing still.  But if you’ve got the time (3:48 to be exact) you’ll really get an appreciation of Avery’s slow-moving songwriting on her new single, “If You’ve Got Time”.  She’s making it for free in exchange for an email address ahead of the release of her debut EP, The Fire, due out this winter.

Avery’s been working in the background, lending her vocal and keyboard skills to others from her adopted home of Hamilton, ON and beyond, all the while developing her own music in private.  Although she says that going into a studio and making those personal thoughts public was a terrifying prospect, the results, based on this delicate bud of a song that opens to reveal a robust and beautiful bloom, are going to move her and her music career into high gear very soon.  “If You’ve Got Time” is available form Avery’s Bandcamp page now.

In it, you'll hear a the broad strokes of someone who's explored a range of sonic influencers--from 13th Floor Elevators to Ride, The Velvet Underground to Atlas Sound--and is now drilling down through the gauzy haze of guitar drone to find their essence, their truth.
