The Norwegian multi- Grammy Award Nominee (Best Female, Best Composer) called Marie Munroe is soon to release her much-anticipated LP Under My Skin via Warner Music Group. Scandinavia’s answer to electro poppy Imogen Heap and Jessie Ware has been very busy since the start of this year. She has not only sold out all the upcoming arena tour dates in her home country, but she has also shared the official video to her single Can’t Go Back:https://youtu.be/Jqf389w1Ck8
Now Marie is about to reveal Give You Up, the latest track from the record. Marie’s influences are discrete enough to hint at a variety of inspirations while notsounding like any specific act. Her multi-tracked and effortlessly assertive lead vocals never tip over into any overbearing drama, and all throughout they simply remain honest. By resembling Jenny Wilson’sstraight-forward style of singing, whilst sonically hinting at Jessie Ware’s powerful way of writing,Marie manages to create a three and a half minute long reflective experience.
The inventive use of synth pads in the verses works perfectly with the shy-sounding Road To Nowhere-inspired drum rhythm. Yet the moment the choruses open up, the fully exposed production takes over by adding a M83-esque dimension to the song, as well as paying tribute to the biggest ‘80s classics.
‘Give You Up’ will be available to buy and download from the 22nd January 2016.
