It might be her first album proper in 5 years but Hackman hasn't wasted a moment in the interim, pumping 'Big Sigh' to the brim with full-hearted, emotionally astute indie pop songs that feel wondrously familiar - spinning this is like welcoming an old friend back in for a fireside chat and picking back up precisely where you left off. If we're emitting a big sigh at the close, it's one of contentment - our itches scratched, our needs sated, our indie rock bellies gloriously full.


'Big Sigh' brings together the best of Marika’s previous works as an indie musician and adds a new layer of epic sounds and full-bodied production. 'Big Sigh' is the “hardest record” Marika has ever made. As the title suggest, it is a relief of sorts – of sadness, of stress and lust, but mostly relief. Lyrically there’s always romance alongside grief, with elements of vulnerability and feeling trapped.


“This album took a long time to make. It was not easy, and by the time I got to the end of it I was quiet. I wanted to be away from it and let it sit in its own space. Now the dust has settled and I’ve got re-enter the world of 'Big Sigh', and I’m excited. Stepping into a new world, moving forward, chipping away. Breathe in, breathe out. Big sigh.”
