Marine, the London-based quartet who’ve just wrapped their Storybook tour of city book shops and comic book stores, are launching their new single at Dalston’s Servant Jazz Quarters.
‘Rapunzel’, which the band describe as a mix of personal experience and fable, is about “cutting off your hair to let your heart grow”. The accompanying video features choreography inspired by Bulgarian folk dance, the Spice Girls, and Elvis Presley.
The single release party takes place on 21 November 2016. Tickets are available now.
Featuring the twin lead vocals of guitarists Cara Sebastian and Ruby Jack, Marine are all about contrasts – old and new, understated and operatic, light and dark, mythology and the deeply personal – to create what they call “fable electric”.
Rounded out by bass player Beth Dariti and drummer Kaja Magsam, the band who’ve drawn comparisons to Warpaint, PJ Harvey, Radiohead, and Kate Bush, have grown from cult followings in London and Berlin to festivals like Secret Garden Party and Shamabala, and airplay on 6Music.
They’ve recently finished recording their debut album with producer Rob Ellis, who’s worked with the likes of PJ Harvey and Cold Specks. Expect to hear much more about it in 2017.
