Taken from her captivating mini album "That Iron Taste" produced by Charlie Andrew (Alt-J) Marika Hackman's latest single, "Bath Is Black", is out now on Dirty Hit.
New single "Bath is Black" was Zane Lowe's 'Hottest Record in the World' and has just been added to the BBC Radio 1 'In New Music We Trust' playlist and 6 Music C List.
Marika's music channels something very different to the happy-clappy nature of recent folk, hers is a far more potent vision in the lineage of Syd Barrett, but presented by an enigmatic beauty with a striking vocal delivery more akin to that of Nico. Intrigue is at the heart of Marika's music, but there's something gloriously attainable about her as an artist, and her commitment to touring and meeting with a receptive audience who are searching for the very same antidotes to the challenges of modern life.
After headlining her own UK tour in March, Marika is pleased to announce numerous summer festival performances including Green Man, Latitude and End of The Road.
