Katie Marshall has had a hard year and clearly has something to shout about. To ask just about everyone we all know, dealing with pain normally equals great songwriting. Katie absorbed these feelings in a positive way and has expressed this in her new record. She describes the music as a marriage of Marion Hill’s catchy electro-pop with Maggie Rogers’s vocally driven melodic rock.
“I wrote a bunch of songs about my hardest year. I wrote songs about the kind of love that makes your stomach flip, and love that makes you flip inside out: raw and vulnerable and sometimes broken. And then I recorded those songs and left it all in the studio”.
The new album in an emotional whirlwind. You can hear influences ranging from Regina Spector to Imogen Heap. At some points, you can hear fat synths that remind me of retro 80‘s Sci-fi mixed with the movie soundtrack of Drive.
The magical amalgamation of genre-blending which includes modern electronic beats with uplifting pop vocals and country guitars is a pure delight and very creative. It sounds far fetched to describe these mixed all together but we highly suggest you get your ears fully wrapped around the new record and see what all the fuss is about!
Katie Marshall has played in various indie-rock bands (Parts for all Makes, SKIRT, Kill-Me Kare Bare, Eve & The Apple, Corey Palmer and Lovetrade, The Katie Marshall Three-Oh), and has toured the country from Seattle to New York. She has performed on TV’s “Drinking With Ian”, “Modern Rock Twin Cities,” and has been a featured artist on Minnesota Public Radio’s “The Local Show.”
To conclude Katie‘s journey so far it’s a big turn around from the indie rock scene to an electronic pop songstress’ check her track below, follow on socials and stay tuned and up to date.
