Marika Hackman is stepping out of her folk shoes into a pair that now have a better fit.
First on the agenda is ‘Boyfriend’. It’s a brazen track, full of witty innuendoes and squeaky guitar riffs, but the message behind the lyrics of the track is clear – never underestimate a woman’s abilities.
Hackman’s second album ‘I’m Not Your Man’ will be released 2 June through AMF Records and Sub Pop.
Fans that pre-order the album can get access to tickets for an intimate show at a secret London venue on 6 March. Enter here.
Sounds like: Nirvana, Wolf Alice, Laura Marling, Lucy Rose, Courtney Barnett
Still Corners members Tessa Murray and Greg Hughes make voluminous ethereal pop indietronica, with soft, fairy female vocals and lustrous pulsating synths. With heavy 80s film influences such as The Breakfast Club and Manhunter their latest video for new single ‘Fireflies’ pays homage to Top Gun.
Still Corners have recently toured with Chvrches, and are already “tinkering” with their third album, and will embark on an EU tour this Autumn.
‘Strange Pleasures’, is out now on Sub Pop, and available for purchasehere.
