Bio

MARLOE.’s second offering for 2020 is the propulsive and effervescent “Like I Need You”. It’s a smart, sharp dancefloor number where the singer wrestles with a relationship that she knows she needs to end.“It’s about the push-and-pull with yourself when you don't need them in your life anymore but you still have this desire for them, or these emotions towards them that you feel like you need them” she says. The lyrics acutely capture this mental struggle, oscillating between that burning need and recognition that she needs to break free from this situation. “It's that eternal battle that you have with yourself” she adds.

MARLOE. bursts onto the scene last year with her stunning self-titled EP, which put her singular brand of dazzling electro-pop on the map. The elegant EP - produced by Grammy-nominated producer Matt Bronleewe and including empowering breakthrough single “The Future Is Now” - saw her balance gut-wrenching pop and heavenly electronica in songs of self-determination, liberation and wounded romance. The release saw her likened to emotive electro-pop titans such as Vera Blue and Lorde.

While MARLOE.’s writing has evolved over the years, what remains constant is a need to exercise her demons and bear witness to the transformation one undergoes throughout their 20s. She takes difficult, altering experiences and extolls the lessons she’s learnt in each and every song. “When I listen back to those songs, it’s a reminder to me how far I've come” she says “I could only hope that other people can listen to them and gain strength from that growth too.”

Really lovely and light, MARLOE. It keeps its pace but maintains its grip. Gorgeous voice too.
