Mess Esque – “Armour your amor”
Mess Esque is the duo of Brisbane singer Helen Franzmann (aka McKisko) and Melbourne instrumentalist Mick Turner of the Dirty Three. They debuted last year with a pair of stunning EPs — one called Dream #12, one self-titled — and have returned today with a wonderful new track called “Armour your amor.” Backed by drums from Turner’s Dirty Three bandmate Jim White, the track ambles along with a ramshackle grandeur, Franzmann’s channeling the likes of Thom Yorke with every gorgeous quiver. Listen below.
“Armour your amor” is out now on Drag City.
