Melbourne alt-rocker Hayley Mary is bringing the dance party to lockdown with the visual for her track, Sullen Kink.

Directed by Marcus Coblyn, we follow the singer as she dances around her apartment, cooking breakfast, vacuuming with a ciggie in hand and putting together some killer outfits. It's basically a visual representation of how we're spending lockdown.

Speaking of the track, the musician shares: “Sullen Kink is about a lot of things, but one is the sad twisting feeling in the stomach when you look back on the past and realise you loved it, but you realised a little too late. A range of reasons make you feel guilty for the nostalgia; you know you should let go and go with the progress, but you find yourself alone again on a Friday night chain-smoking and drinking Champagne for no reason, reminiscing. It’s no major global tragedy, just a minor recurring personal one, but that has been all too many Friday nights for me. So I thought I’d invite you into my lounge room for peak at a more cinematic version of it. Thanks to Marcus Coblyn for helping me make it.”

Mary is gearing up to hit the road for the remainder of the year, kicking off with an EP launch show in Melbourne this month, followed by a headline show in Sydney and appearances at a number of festivals across the nation. The singer will also be supporting indie-rock legends Holy Holy on their tour November.
