It?s a little known fact that when Martha released their debut Courting Strong last year, they released ten of the best songs written in the past five years. Vegan, straight-edge and anarchist, Martha compose tight yet frenetic indie pop-punk songs that expertly combine personal woes with political history, to remind you your life is a constant war. They tie topics about the Seneca Falls Convention into personal gender issues. These songs are heavy with anxiety and emotion yet they?re happy just to exist and dance about the bouncy ?60s girl-group inspired melodies and multi-faceted song structures. It doesn?t matter if Martha don?t become the biggest band in the world, because these highly intelligent songs are more important than that.
