Kate Winslet’s new crime drama Mare Of Easttown premieres tonight on HBO Max. In the show, Angourie Rice (who you might recognize from Spider-Man: Far From Home and Miley Cyrus’ Black Mirror episode) plays Siobhan, the daughter of the titular Mare (played by Kate Winslet). Siobhan is a musician and in case the songs she’ll perform on the show sound familiar, that’s because they’re actually Mannequin Pussy’s.

The band’s lead singer Marisa Dabice shared the news on Twitter, writing “We can finally tell you that over a YEAR ago this HBO show got in touch b/c they wanted to use MP songs as the songs for the band in the TV show!” She also mentioned that because she was on tour in Europe and couldn’t coach Rice and the other cast members who form part of the fictional band on how to perform the songs, Japanese Breakfast’s Michelle Zauner stepped in to teach them “how to be a band.”

Dabice also explained that Rice recorded the music with the help of very in-demand producer Will Yip, who’s worked with Mannequin Pussy on their 2019 record, Patience, and their upcoming EP, Perfect. Looks like it’ll only be two songs, “Who You Are” and “In Love Again” off Patience, though Dabice also wrote that Perfect lead single ”Control” “has a little moment as well.”
