Album of the week: February 4 – Married Man

February 4th 2019

Sydney post-punk trio Married Man have released their debut full-length, Hard Bargain. Produced by Straight Arrows’ Owen Penglis and Total Control’s Mikey Young, Hard Bargain is an airtight collection of nine nocturnal tracks that sit somewhere between serene and smoldering. Blossoming from the solo project of singer-songwriter Sarafina Pea into a full-blown three piece, Married Man harness their swooning guitars and mystical layered harmonies to infuse their blissfully bruised dream-pop with the wired tension of post-punk. Lush, atmospheric and fiery, Hard Bargain is a fever dream, an otherworldly collision between heavenly and haunting, that announces Married Man’s arrival with a remarkably cohesive debut.
