Stella Donnelly re-releases 'Thrush Metal' and heads to UK in May
Words: Sam Geary
Having signed to Secretly Canadian, Australian singer-songwriter Stella Donnelly is re-releasing last year's debut EP, 'Thrush Metal' as a 12″ (with a new bonus track, 'Talking') on June 22.
Preceding that she has shared a new video for the stark and heavy 'Mechanical Bull', in which she features as a restaurant waitress where the menu consists of female mannequin body parts.
“‘Mechanical Bull’ is dedicated to people who work in hospitality who have to deal with customers, especially drunk ones, harassing them and making objectifying comments,” she says. “I wrote this about my experience working in bars and it was a nice way to release some of the frustration I had!” Watch the video below.
After playing SXSW in March and a string of US dates, Donnelly heads to the UK in May.
