that iron taste
Brighton's Marika Hackman variously recalls psapp, serafina steer & nico & her debut ep is a wonderful slice of quirky alt-folk.
Marika describes her sound as "folk at the inner core, Kurt Cobain for the outer core, whimsical dark madness for the mantle, & Marika Hackman for the crust". Following the captivating debut single produced by Johnny Flynn & Adam Beach from the Sussex Wit, this mini album has been produced by Charlie Andrew (Alt-J). a poetic, ethereal beauty of a record with some cute little electronic flourishes to keep things fresh. "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" - folk radio.
