Described as “like a young Billie Holiday gate-crashing a Tom Waits Swordfishtrombones recording session”, or “a moody Mary Margaret O’Hara”, blues and roots duo MA POLAINE'S GREAT DECLINE continue to build a reputation as an intriguing and hard to pigeon-hole act.

This autumn Ma Polaine’s Great Decline release a new single and accompanying video The Poison Sits. This is a remixed ‘single version’ of the song which features on the band’s latest record “The Outsider”. From the start Beth Packer and Clinton Hough always sought to keep their song-writing influences open, and have a sound with oddness, sparsity and a subtle quality that is their own, and this song is perhaps the best example of this. The Poison Sits is of love’s ability to engulf, a stark blues first written in early 2011 and has become a signature song for the band.

The album version of The Poison Sits has had wide-spread radio play, including Tom Robinson’s BBC 6 show, Verity Sharp’s Late Junction on BBC Radio 3 and was included in fRoots magazine download, alongside a feature on the band.

The duo have been tightening their unique sound whilst remaining decidedly easy and loose with the range of influences they draw from. Blues, jazz and country feature strongly, but what this duo admire most in others is individuality, artists who have been unafraid to be themselves musically and in attitude. Billie Holiday, Tom Waits, Nina Simone, Hurray for the Riff Raff, Gillian Welch and Nick Cave are just a few examples.
 

fRoots: “think a moody Mary Margaret O’Hara…”

Fatea Magazine: “…a record of profound maturity”…” Beth has a voice of rare beauty; dynamic, vibrant, sultry and, at times, pulsating”…” The Outing is an album to be relished, the aural delights proffered are plentiful and compelling, with a mark of individuality that is refreshing.

Roots Music Report: “one compelling and unique musical presence”.
