Strange Words And Weird Wars - new full-length released on June 2, 2017
Following on from her critically lauded 2013 album Crystal World, Marnie continues to develop her very own take on a modern pop sound through the release of Strange Words And Weird Wars, out on 2nd June 2017 via Disco Pinata.
Comprised of ten pulsating tracks, Strange Words And Weird Wars showcases the most impressive elements of Marnie’s incarnation as a solo artist along with those that made her band, Ladytron, one of the most respected pioneers in electronic music; soul crushing synths are wonderfully accented by hook-laden choruses as Marnie boldly explores up-tempo electro dream-pop. By pre-ordering the album on iTunes right now, you will instantly receive 'Lost Maps', and 'Alphabet Block' plus on May 12 'Electric Youth' will become available.
The ability to effortlessly play with genres becomes more and more apparent as you work your way through what is such a sonically impressive record. Tracks such as album opener, the unashamedly melodic 'Alphabet Block', nods to contemporary electro-pop artists. While 'Electric Youth' channels 80s mall pop, think Pat Benatar via M83, a glorious guilty pleasure and one of the stand-out tracks on the album, introspection comes in the form of the shoegaze-inspired 'A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night', giving the air of an unreleased b-side from a cult vampire movie. And while the new single, 'Lost Maps', should be heard on dancefloors around the world, 'Summer Boys' echoes the hazy days of summer, dreaming big whilst reading stolen Mills & Boons books.
Having moved back to Glasgow in September 2012 after many years living in London, Marnie continued to write music following the success of her solo project and subsequent album release in 2013. Influenced by life, love, loss, politics and all things 80s pop, Marnie has created an album that has an intelligence and a depth behind what, on the surface, is a melodic contemporary pop record.
Wolves - Record Store Day 7" Single
'Wolves' is the brand new single by Marnie to be issued as a special limited edition black vinyl 7" for Record Store Day on April 18th 2015. The B-side will be an exclusive remix of Wolves by synthpop duo Marsheaux.
