Swiss folk-pop artist Mary Middlefield is proud to release her debut EP ‘Poetry (For The Scorned and Lonely)’. The release comes alongside her brand new single and live video ‘Poetry’, stream here and watch here. The eight track project includes her latest singles ‘Sexless’, ‘Atlantis’, ‘Heart’s Desire’ and ‘Young and Dumb’ as well as four new songs ‘Last Letter (Acoustic)’, ‘Allodynia’, ‘Love Me Love Me Not’ and ‘Poetry’.

On the EP, Mary says “The EP is a collection of songs I wrote when we were on the verge of finishing and putting out my first album. I was itching to dive into something new. I wanted these songs to be edgier, more honest, and raw—especially when it came to addressing tough topics like abuse and grooming, which I hadn’t really explored in my previous record. I was going through a lot of loneliness and sadness then, but it was a different kind than what I was used to. I hope these tracks resonate with anyone else out there battling with those dark feelings of loneliness and sorrow.”

‘Poetry (For The Scorned and Lonely) is a purging of emotion, one that’s allowing Mary Middlefield to move forward with a clear mind and a clean palette. But for now, this is music for the people who are stuck, scorned and lonely. Mary invites you to suffer and yearn and scream alongside her. A lush eight tracks, the EP features previous singles ‘Sexless’, ‘Atlantis’, ‘Heart’s Desire’ and ‘Young and Dumb’, alongside the beautifully delicate ‘Last Letter (Acoustic)’, the interlude of ‘Allodynia’, achingly enchanting ‘Love Me Love Me Not’ and dreamy title track ‘Poetry’.

In Lausanne, Switzerland, wildflower-trails blaze with ultraviolet colour, mountains of myth surround a lake of sapphire. It’s a beauty so intense that it pacifies itself, turns still, and silent. Musician Mary Middlefield – who, for all her life, has called Lausanne home—splits the landscape apart, turning it into a wild scream. Her music is like a howl in the beautiful wilderness.

Her story as a singer-songwriter began three years ago with a broken heart and a bruised ego. “He dumped me in the middle of the day while I was carrying his groceries,” she says. With nothing to lose, she figured it was the perfect time to experiment. She picked up the guitar, and taught herself chords and riffs from Radiohead’s songbook. “I hope I’ll get their discography down to a T one day,” she says. From there, piece by piece and note by note, she began stitching herself back together, turning her pain into something generative, fortifying. Through song, she began to reclaim everything she’d lost in that relationship and its subsequent dissolution.
