Owen W Over her signature blend of indie pop and singer/songwriter, punctuated with spoken word, Mary paints a cathartic picture of her trauma and mental illness, turning her worst struggles into beautiful art. Elevating these songs is her blunt yet poetic writing style, managing to be memorable without being cryptic. It's one of the most difficult and emotionally harrowing listening experiences I've had in the 2010s, and one of the most rewarding. Favorite track: Easy to Leave (feat. Maiah Manser).
