Glasgow born Helen Marnie may have made her name as the singer for the internationally acclaimed Ladytron, but has successfully forged a solo career with her critically lauded 2013 album ‘Crystal World’ and forthcoming 2nd album ‘Strange Words and Weird Wars’. Marnie continues to develop her very own take on a modern pop sound with her up-tempo, electro-dream pop melodies and sounds.
Marnie has just released new single Electric Youth, premiered by The Line of Best Fit:
“Electric Youth” has Marnie‘s inimitably breathy vocals front and centre, with bubbling neon synths behind – it’s got booming percussion and a trickling pitter-patter of electro rain, plus shimmering hope and to-the-rafters refrains in spades. Marnie distils the biggest clichés from ’80s rock and pop into a refined shard of pristine noise – it might be build from retro bricks, but Marnie’s as cutting edge as ever.
