FAME RECOMMENDS: MARIKA HACKMAN ‘YOU COME DOWN / MOUNTAIN SPINES’
There’s a violence to the countryside, encapsulated in the sumptuous prose of D.H Lawrence’s in which metaphors engorge and heighten into states of pure ecstasy.
A fantastic and virulent strain of writing which, thanks to Marika Hackman, now exists in song.
Double A-Side ‘You Come Down’ and ‘Mountain Spines’ produced by Johnny Flynn and Adam Beach from the Sussex Wit will be released September 3rd through Transgressive imprint paradYse (Theme Park, Cold Specks) on limited 7” and digital download.
Marika says: “I don’t know why I started writing; it’s something I’ve been playing around with since I was so young that I can’t remember how it began.
I think living in the countryside for most of my life has affected my writing as nature usually manages to creep its way into my songs…”
With tours already in place with Benjamin Francis Leftwich, Marika will also be playing a single launch show on Tuesday, September 4th at London Servant Jazz Quarters.
Marika Hackman is One to Watch this year and next!
