Puce Mary

Saturday 1 June

Danish noisenik Frederikke Hoffmeier, aka Puce Mary, wrote her latest album The Drought as a fictional soundtrack of a slowly-emerging apocalypse: in both the song titles and the extreme sounds she excavates, that particular theme seems very pervasive. Puce Mary immersed herself in feedback and noise on her previous albums, but her new work adopts a combination of heavy drones, chilly vocals and sweeping ambient sounds. With that, Puce Mary certainly doesn’t make the most accessible music at Best Kept Secret, but she is without question one of the more fascinating and intense artists to grace our stage.
