Mary Webb drops new single ‘Gecko Fingers’
Adelaide songstress Mary Webb has announced the release of her new single ‘Gecko Fingers,’ ahead of her forthcoming album Love Like Planets.
‘Gecko Fingers’ is a delicate number that touches on the intricate relationships of sisters. The subtlety of the instruments and Mary’s poignant vocals consider something close to home.
In reflecting on the song, the themes and personal relationship with her sister, Mary said that their relationship both on love, and also moments of conflict.
“Growing up with 7 years between my sister and I in age, we had a lot of love for each other but there was also a lot of anger and conflict.
“As adults we are very close, and have come to a calm understanding of each other. It is a fun song to play and sing, and it’s also really satisfying because so many people relate to it. It’s also a positive reminder to me of the bond we have.”
‘Gecko Fingers’ is the first impression of Mary’s new album Love Like Planets, set for release on February 16 (which you can listen to here, and is available to pre-order now). Mary will be touring the new album from mid January through to March, beginning at the Exeter Hotel in Adelaide, then continuing through SA and NSW and finishing up in Melbourne at the Wesley Anne on March 17.
