Get To Know – Marine

We Say


IMG-5851On their recently released debut album, Fable Electric, London-quartet, Marine quickly set about living up to all the hype around them. Drawing comparison to the likes of Warpaint and PJ Harvey, Marine make the music of contrasts, driving beats and hypnotic a-melodic bass sit menacingly beneath intricate vocal harmonies and hook-laden guitar lines. Marine take the extraordinary stuff of legend and place it firmly into the everyday world that surrounds them, theirs is the sound of four different musicians growing through the cracks in the urban landscape and combining to something far greater than the sum of their parts.

One the year’s finest debuts to date, you’ll get a chance to see how Fable Electric translates to the live stage when the band play at our upcoming All-Dayer this Saturday at The Victoria in Dalston.


They Say…


FTR: For those who don’t know who are Marine?

Marine are a band who grew in the gaps between the concrete of the city, with very different stories we hoped to combine uniquely into just one.

FTR: What made you form a band? What can you remember about your first show?

Playing with people is a great pleasure! The bond and chemistry created in a room, onstage, in the studio… is simply awesome. Our first show in this lineup was at Total Refreshment Centre around 2014! It was very special.

FTR: Why do you make music? Why not another art form?

We actually make art in many forms, including painting, photography… music is the art that unites us.

FTR: What can people expect from the Marine live show?

We’ve been described as “off-kilter rock that’s even more immersive in the flesh – a bewitching and visceral noise that’s part Warpaint, part PJ Harvey.

FTR: What’s next for Marine?

We are keen to experiment a bit more with our sound, introduce new ways to express ourselves through sounds. Currently promoting and playing from our album Fable Electric, with gigs in London, Brighton and beyond lined up. Stay in touch at www.wearemarine.com.


They listen to…


IMG-5849

ESG – Erase You

This track has given Cara the sass and Kaja the diskofunk

Ani Difranco – Providence

Ani Difranco has been a big influence and inspiration to Beth and Cara… musically and lyrically. “Providence” and that whole album is a fave.

PJ Harvey – Let England Shake

PJ Harvey has been with us from the very start. Her album “Let England Shake”; she’s a legend of her own to us.

Jeff Buckley – Mojo Pin

The intensity of the dynamics as well as the organic changes of grooves and feel on this song have really influenced the way Kaja approaches songs and how to drum to them.

Prince – Get Off

This is the song that made Kaja pick up the drumsticks!
