Altmusic presents the new sound in industrial noise music – Puce Mary.


Puce Mary binds the listener in a tight web of sharp synthesizers, hammering percussion, obscured vocals, field recordings, and blistering noise. Intimidatingly personal, Puce Mary manages to honor the history of industrial music and noise while simultaneously transforming it. With an impressive discography and live career, Puce Mary has manifested herself as a key voice in new experimental electronic music.


“delicate fragments of spoken word are devoured by lashes of noise.. rotating coils of feedback are deconstructed by a deliberated ominous kick drum and stentorian, visceral howls” The Quietus

“…sounds like foundations shattering in real time, like purging the worst parts of yourself. It’s what you’d want to hear as you lose control…” Pitchfork


Puce Mary will perform in Christchurch, Dunedin, Wellington and Auckland with the support of some of New Zealand’s most adventurous sonic artists.
