Hayley Mary, the former lead singer of The Jezabels, has a new EP ‘Young & Stupid’.
Hayley fronted The Jezabels from 2007 to 2017. The band never actually broke up but has been M.I.A., listed as “on indefinite hiatus” for the past four years.
Hayley released her first solo song ‘The Piss, The Perfume’ in 2019 and the E.P. in 2020.
‘Young & Stupid’ is a song about a landline ringing. “I hadn’t realised they even had a landline,” Hayley said. “It was like a ghost calling through the hallway with that old school ring. ‘Who the hell even calls you on that?’ I asked. ‘Only Nana,’ my partner replied. As it was in the middle of the worst part of covid, there was a certain vibe around; of everything that had been taken for granted; of the preciousness of life and the fragility of the old, mixed with a pronounced concern with where technology was going to take us. We reflected on the probability that when the last landlines in the world stopped ringing it would only be because a certain generation was gone.”
