"There's something softly devastating about Marine. They go about their business with an under-stated intensity, with their music - darkly infectious, fragrantly lucid - really seeping under your skin." - CLASH
“Submerging ethereal vocals and gentle guitars in an ocean of space.” NME
"Its instantly apparent how beautiful a collaboration Marine are; dreamy, rich, robust vocals... It's the musical equivalent of a creamy post-coital blush." Line of Best fit
London based group Marine have just released their debut album 'Fable Electric', via The Vinyl Factory after releasing beguiling single 'Mount Olympus' & 'Sirens'.
‘Fable Electric' is an album that brims with exploratory wonder and bridges the gaps between spectral pop, dreamy grunge and ambient folk, whilst lyrically exploring ancient tales of mythology and the underworld. Since forming in 2014, the band - made up of Cara Sebastian (Vocals & Guitar), Beth Dariti (Bass) and Kaja Magsam (Drums) - have been running their own show in their own way, touring across Europe and the UK and quickly building a cult following in both Berlin and London, whilst racking up support from tastemakers at BBC 6 Music and across the blogosphere.
After wowing crowds at Secret Garden Party, Shambala and more this summer, the band swim deeper into their own concepts to present their debut album, which was recorded at Grand Chapel Studios with esteemed producer Rob Ellis (Anna Calvi, PJ Harvey, Cold Specks).
Both wild and elegant, the record is framed by intuitive beats, bass hypnosis that playfully counters melody, and a deep love of contrast. The vocal lines braid together over hooky guitar lines in a complex plait of old and new, understated and operatic, light and dark. The songs of Marine crystallised from mythology and fables, mingling with personal words and emotions to form tales of the ordinary and extraordinary. Their songs reference the underworld, seal demons, mighty Kraken, werewolves, witches and Gods, and even question the very nature of storytelling itself.
