A SELECTION OF REVIEWS

The song is 5 and a half minutes of transient escapism. It feels somewhat like a soundtrack to a film, filled with its highs of big sonic moments and its lower, softer sounds of the vocal verses.

The soloist’s newest hit has a range of vibes, with its use of funk-style drums and its electro-synth combination giving it a retro sound that feels like the floating feeling of peace and serenity.

‘Bad Bones’ is a moment for listeners to immerse themselves within. It’s a song that embodies headphones in, volume up and world out. For a little while, you can have your own out-of-body experience.

(Bad Bones NE Volume)

Coming from Newcastle, Marq is inclined to critique British politics, and he does just that in ‘Bad Bones’. The song features phrases like ‘Don’t make promises’, ‘Forget what you told us’, ‘Lie to the people, then look them straight in the eye’ and ‘You’re immune to the truth’.

Marq is well-known for his transgressiveness, presenting musical fusions between retro and electro sounds. ‘Bad Bones’ combines the traditional with the modern, as it takes the listener on a truly immersive trip, with big sonic amplitudes ranging between low vocals and high sound flashes. It is reminiscent of a soundtrack of an action thriller film or a video game. The bass of the drums fills the room and gives the song an even funkier vibe.

After years of writing and singing in a band, Marq says lockdown has given him the opportunity to focus on solo projects and collaborations with other artists. ‘Bad Bones’ comes after his other solo singles, including ‘Crazy Fool’, ‘In a City’, and ‘Get Down and Work It Out’. Fans of the northern electro music scene will be eager to hear more of what he has in store for them.

We uncover an experimental electronic gem with Marq Electronica’s newest release ‘Bad Bones’, out today!

Marq Electronica knows how to move people through music. There’s an otherwordly, entrancing quality to this track. Though it borrows musical elements from the 80s, 90s and now, this song remains rather timeless. Marq evades easy labelling and neat categorisation, with a hybrid of genres too.

Electronica never fails to impress. He is a prolific writer and has been delivering new music every couple months. Whilst many of his solo releases have been more leaning towards dance music, Marq goes back to his roots somewhat for this new single. ‘Bad Bones’ has elements reminiscent of his synth-rock trio Sapien Trace, for which he is frontman and lead singer.

The video and song are out now to watch/stream/download now! They make for captivating viewing and listening. Go check it out.

Shimmering with a lurex-fine pop sheen, this little gem of a track from MARQ Electronica hooks the listener in, beckoning them to dance like no one’s watching – go on, we’re locked down…you’re allowed – the insistent heavy groove providing a great counterpoint to the classic house piano that punctuates the track throughout.

Stylistically similar to Erasure, producer Simon Ellis (Brit and Ivor Novello award winner) keeps things on the right side of saccharine, winding the track to a proper hands-in-the-air climax; it’s also a real ear-worm, one play and you’ll be humming it all day. The Sapien Trace frontman may have just dropped a future Balearic classic in the dead of a freezing Northern winter.

‘Crazy Fool’ is bathed in an fascinating electronic production that will make the EDM world smile. It’s elegant and commercial, something the electronic world loves. Produced by Brit and Ivor Novello award winner SimonEllis, the message illuminates being crazy in love… Beyonce move out of the way! Armed with a fun-loving nature and a house style dance beat, ‘Crazy Fool’ is the first song a DJ should drop when the clubs re-open.

Full of catchy melodies and funky tunes, ‘Wildlife’ is an easy to access record full of the type of celebratory life and vigour that’s hard to fake.

Part Pet Shop Boys in its narration of tales of everyday life, and part Erasure in its 80’s dancefloor synth textures, ‘Wildlife’ is full of confidence and bravado.
