Marika Hackman will release her debut album, We Slept At Last, through Dirty Hit on 16th February 2015. It will be preceded by the single ‘Drown’ on 8th December 2014.

From the tangled folk roots of That Iron Taste through to the swarming psychedelia of Sugar Blind and Deaf Heat, there’s a distinct sense of adventure to Marika’s songwriting. Over this trilogy of hugely revered releases her extraordinary songs have continued to develop and evolve, whilst still retaining the same beauty and invention that make her vision truly unique.

We Slept At Lastis an assured and endlessly intriguing debut album that rewards every repeated listen with new riches. Produced by long-term collaborator Charlie Andrew (Alt-J), each song uncovers an artist undaunted to challenge traditional conventions to create something that’s at once classic and contemporary.

Marika Hackman is an artist who is more likely to quote proto-feminist ghost stories such as the Yellow Wallpaper than align with audience expectations of a woman prepared to “sing a few nice songs with a pretty voice and then forget about it”.

Clearly she’s made of more substance than her contemporaries.

A captivating vocalist and incredibly attractive individual who is more interested in challenging perceptions of what songwriting can or should be in modern times, to bring us a greater sense of truth and understanding of current issues, from the forms of the past.
