London quartet, Marine just released a new single entitled, Mount Olympus and after one pass, I’m hooked. Hypnotic and pulsive, the drumming and other deeply-rooted rhythm tracks make Mount Olympus’ groove, infectious and worthy of removing your hands from your keyboard/phone/steering wheel for one of those, devoted listens.
It’s also a track worthy of steeping in certain personal playlists/collections for later tastings. The vocal performance is the real story here. Multi-layered female voices mix vibrato and smooth, falsetto and the low, sexy and smart, whispers and aggression; they all meld to make Mount Olympus worthy of early Tori Amos or Annie Lenox stature. Over-driven guitars, string sections and symphonic percussion sounds are used tastefully throughout Mount Olympus rendering it one of those, “genre-less” tracks; they’re few and far between and highly collectable.
Marine has recently been signed to The Vinyl Factory and has upcoming 2018 shows in London, Bristol and Brixton.
