M A R I N E // Kraken
New all-female outfit M A R I N E have arrived on our radar with a clutch of blustery, artful tracks that stretch odd pop music out into something more fragile, dreamy and dark.
The pick of the bunch is the cathartic ‘Kraken’, all plaintive vocals and wandering guitars that erupt into a momentary release. It manages to be both as menacing and airy as Warpaint’s soundscapes and as devastating as Sharon van Etten’s bruised vocal takes, which sounds as irresistible a combination on tape as it does on paper.
Their debut ep, EP 1, is out now.
