Mary Ocher's current reincarnation is a sub-religious experience with the mysterious spirits of the ancients, in an audio-visual explosion of cult futuristic rock&roll. Armed with two drummers, the queen outsider of Berlin avant-pop is exploring the depths of forbidden tribal, electronic ecstasies.
Her much-anticipated self-titled full-length release with Your Government is due out on Faust's label Klangbad in late 2015. It is Ocher's 4th full-length album to date, following the double anthology earlier in 2015, EDEN (produced by King Khan) and War Songs. The new album is a synth-heavy psych bomb, consisting of various elements of old school industrial music, as well as cumbia and tribal rhythms, krautrock and no-wave. 
In 2014-5 she's played 80 North American dates, as well as nearly all of Europe—from the UK to Russia (via Scandinavia) - and Southeast Asia, Australia and New Zealand. Most recently, she played the CTM, Pop Montreal and Reeperbahn festivals, as well as LA's GENESIS show with Ariel Pink, Cat Power and Moby.

'Mary is a pinball in hyperspace. It's pure, martial and arousing, like an army of rattling skeletons. She needs two drummers to keep up with her Venusian energy and the result is a scandal!' Felix Kubin
