**NOW IN STOCK**“Virgin Mary” is the synth-induced followup single to
Nots’ debut LP, We Are Nots. Recorded half on Natalie
Hoffmann’s four-track in the industrial dazed storage unit
where the band practices, and half in Burgundy Studios
with Keith Cooper (the rock ’n’ roll warlock responsible
for capturing the two previous Nots 45-RPM assaults),
“Virgin Mary” delivers hellish synth and guitar that swirls
around the hypnotic rhythm section as the band simmers
into the sonic void.
“[‘Virgin Mary’] finds the band back in the studio with
Keith Cooper, the guy who recorded their first two
singles. While it certainly sounds like a Nots song, there’s
a significant departure from We Are Nots: Alexandra
Eastburn’s synthesizer isn’t centrally responsible for
the song’s melody. Instead, it burbles in the background,
giving the track an unsettling and celestial undertone.
And Natalie Hoffmann’s voice howls, her ever-unsteady
and unpredictable guitar needles into the frame. Here, the
rhythm section, Charlotte Watson and Madison Farmer,
come off as the track’s ever-churning center. Nots aren’t
exactly reinventing themselves—it’s familiar, but feels
new. If this is a portent of their next moves, though, the
impending chaos ought to be interesting.” —Pitchfork
