Martin Frawley of Twerps Announces Solo Debut, Shares "End of the Bar"

Martin Frawley, best known for his work with Australian indie-pop band Twerps, has announced his solo debut, Undone at 31, out Feb. 22, 2019, on Merge Records, along with sharing its second single, “End of the Bar.” The announcement follows Frawley’s debut solo single “You Want Me?,” which detailed his split with fellow Twerp Jules McFarlane.

Undone at 31 is named for the year of Frawley’s life when everything fell apart, and the playful devastation of that rhyming album title is in line with the headspace that Frawley let us peek into with “You Want Me?” He’s still disarmed by the way his life has fallen apart around him, but his methods of coping seem to be expanding.

Where “You Want Me?” was quiet and reeling, “End of the Bar” feels angrier and more desperate. “If you need me, yeah you’ll find me / I’m at the end of the bar,” Frawley sings. “Don’t come smiling, don’t come easy / ‘cause I’ll hit you in the heart.” He seems content to wallow in bitterness, which sometimes is the most important step a person can take. Sure, pain is beautiful, but pithiness is cathartic.

Frawley will be touring in 2019, although he hasn’t announced any specific dates yet.
