Released just today, the stunning Marlae invites us to run away with her. A song about getting out of where-ever we are and finding somewhere new, this synth-pop groover takes a rich yet minimal approach to song-writing. The Dublin-based singer, known for her contralto voice, finds a comfy home within electronic beats and lush synthesiser. The song has a fantastic video made by the gifted Paul Dodd, who discovered Marlae and decided to reach out from his home in Australia. Recorded and mixed in Marlae's Templeogue home then mastered by Ben Rawlins, we as listeners are taken on a journey away from what-ever is troubling us.
Sultry chimes paddle at the air with melodious scales and the voice of Marlae rises from the flow. Sweet and sensual vocals sweep like aromatic spring breezes across an expanse of poise. Moody chords vibrate and compose themselves in comfortable jibs that catch the moving air in embraces. Subtle notes filter out in between a pounding bassline which beats like a heart close to another's chest. A sensation of the 1980s grows from the choice of synthesiser, soulful and rounded notes bob like ducks on a choppy lake. As an emotional presence manifests in clarity through the words, a new layer of piano begins to strike a barrage of complimentary chords to the uplifting currents of energy, led by the effortless yet crowd-shuddering voice.
