Featuring four tracks from their debut album Fable Electric.
Following the release of their debut album with The Vinyl Factory last week, London-based band Marine popped into Soho Radio with guitars and shakers in tow to join VF Editor Anton Spice for a special live acoustic session.
Broadcast live, the four-piece played four tracks from the records – ‘Mount Olympus’, ‘Selkie’, ‘Big Dog’ and ‘Aesop’ – each of which corresponds to a fable or myth. Drawing on a range of influences Cara, Kaja, Beth and Ruby also each brought a track that has inspired them, from ESG to Billie Holiday.
You can listen to the live session below:
In the second hour it was back to business with a selection of new music making waves at VF this month, featuring a brace of boogie-down Stones Throw releases, Ghanaian highlife from Ebo Taylor, Japanese video-tape cut ups and the first single from rising London-based vocalist and producer Tony Kjoku.
