The Mallard Finding Meaning in Deference

It’s been two months since front woman Greer McGettrick pulled the plug on her post-punk project The Mallard, admitting her disenchantment with music and also cushioning the blow with the the promise of a second and final album. Though the band has no plans to support the record with any shows, Finding Meaning in Deference is due to be released July 25th on Castle Face Records, and you can hear the album’s closing track, “Iceberg,” over at Brooklyn Vegan.

While each new piece of the LP might feel like a bittersweet eulogy, there is something exciting about knowing The Mallard left everything on the table with this one. So if you’ve been mourning the band’s dissolution, have a listen and remember there are more sinister tunes to come.
