In the lead up to the release of her new EP, “Sugar Blind”, Marika Hackman has revealed an intimate performance video of the EP’s lead track, “Cinnamon”, watch it below.
Produced by Charlie Andrew (Alt-J), ‘Sugar Blind’ marks a significant stride forward in Marika’s songwriting. From the swarming, psychedelic grit of lead track, “Cinnamon”, which Marika describes as about “the dumbing down of humanity”, to the earthy, intimate interpretation of Joanna Newsom’s “81”, each song pays testament to Marika’s rare talent.
Intrigue is at the heart of Marika’s music, but there’s something gloriously attainable about her as an artist, and her commitment to touring and meeting with a receptive audience who are searching for the very same antidotes to the challenges of modern life. Marika will be recording her debut album this winter.
