Born in a little town near Florence, Italy, Le Marina grew up in an artistic environment, in a family of eccentrics devoted to art. That tiny village started to feel too small for her ideas and this inspired her move to London in 2012. Her music aims to offer a musical journey where intimate warm vocals are surrounded by synthetic sounds, future beats and heavy bass lines.
Le Marina presents her debut single “Bottles” on February 1st via The Sound Of Everything UK. Bottles is a slow song, driven by a strong vocal melody and a heavy drum beat, surrounded by synthetic sounds. The chorus expands and release the tension of the verse. The song ends with instrumental outro, where the whole feeling explodes in a rainbow of sounds.
You can easily tell that Le Marina’s main influence is 90s Trip Hop. Artists like Massive attack and Portishead can be traced at the roots of her writing. But artists such as FKA Twigs, Kaytranada, Kelala and Flying Lotus are her actual daily inspiration in her production and creativity.
Electronic sounds mixed with unexpected R&B rhythm patterns, based on a moody trip hop atmosphere is ultimately how she describes her music.
