After the demise of Australian band Twerps, co-leader Martin Frawley is forging his own path with the release of his debut solo album, Undone at 31. The record sees Frawley look back on the dissolution of his long-term relationship with fellow Twerps bandmate Jules McFarlane in very honest and plainspoken terms. Our Song of the Day, “End of the Bar,” speaks on the period post-breakup where Frawley turned to booze and bar friends in an attempt to numb the pain while also wallowing in his misery. “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.”

The song follows the lead single “You Want Me?”, which speaks vulnerably about his relationship with McFarlane. Undone at 31 is out February 22 via Merge. Watch the Frawley and Stewart Bronaugh-directed video for “You Want Me?” below.
