Marnie’s album ‘Strange Words And Weird Wars’ is out now!
“…it might be build from retro bricks, but Marnie’s as cutting edge as ever.” – The Line Of Best Fit
“…crushing percussion outlined by the neon pattering of synthesizers. “ – Consequence of Sound
“…upbeat, melodic modern pop…” – Playboy
“…this really is an an incredibly impressive album that deserves a lot of attention.” – Popjustice
Marnie’s cutting edge sound has gained support from some of the most important tastemakers in the industry with the likes of Pop Justice premiering first single ‘Alphabet Block’, Consequence of Sound unveiling the unashamedly melodic Lost Maps culminating in The Line Of best Fit premiering the audio for latest single Electric Youth with the video appearing first on OUT .
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.
Marnie’s 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 ‘Girls’ expertly draws parallels with some of the most gifted female contemporary electro artists, while 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.
After moving 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 80’s pop, Marnie has created an album that has an intelligence and a depth behind what, on the surface, is a melodic modern pop record. Further support has come from the likes of The 405, Filter, BBC Radio Scotland and A.V. Club. Marnie will be supporting the release of the album with a perforce at Oslo in London on June 9th 2017.
