Laura-Mary Carter, best known as one half of rockers Blood Red Shoes, will make her solo debut this December with the release of mini-album, “Town Called Nothing“, due 3rd December. Following title-track “Town Called Nothing“, today LauraMary has shared the new single “Ceremony“. The accompanying video sees her performing the song in Jimi Hendrix’s bedroom, backed by a band consisting of Seb Rochford (Polar Bear, Electric Ladyland, Patti Smith), Jack Flanagan (The Mystery Jets) and Patrick Walden (Babyshambles).

Laura-Mary explains of “Ceremony”: “The song is about my career. It’s about being in debt to someone and trying to break free. It’s about the feeling of not having a choice but to make music because that’s who I am but that sometimes comes with a price or with massive sacrifices. It’s about making peace with the choices and decisions I have made over the years and moving forward.”

Of the writing process, she adds: “Ceremony” started with the bass-line and I really enjoyed the feel as it reminded me of The Pink Room, a track from the David Lynch movie “Fire Walk With Me”. I created the song around the groove, which is very different to the rest of the mini album as the other songs all started with the guitar and voice. I wanted it to be percussion driven so I found random stuff I could hit, shake, smash that would add interesting layers and create an uneasy feeling. I wanted the guitars to sound like violins that bite like rattlesnakes. I always imagined it to be the last song on the record, so it fades out at the end like the end credits of a movie.”

Incase you didn’t know I have a band camp where you can pre order my record in various formats and I just put up a very limited photo print for sale as my first merch item. Thanks all for your support https://laura-marycarter.bandcamp.com

I have been waiting to show you this for a long while and finally the time has come. So pleased to announce the release of the title track to my debut solo ‘mini-album’, “Town Called Nothing”. I started making solo music which was totally different to my band and this was the first song that I wrote and thought “where did this come from?”

I guess my name fits the music, maybe I was country gal in a past life or something haha. Anyways I will save all the mushy thanks and stuff for when it fully comes out but I am really happy that I get to share with you the first song.
