On June 3, 2016, LA-based singer, songwriter, and producer marks (Lindsay Marcus) will release, The Modern Life. The 9-track album is marks’ debut and will quickly become your new obsession. With breathy vocals over synth beats, she recalls the sounds of Bat For Lashes, Chvrches, and Purity Ring. The first single of The Modern Life will be the album’s second track, “Heartbeat.” Released on April 11, the singer worked with director Antony Langdon on a video, which was filmed in one day in downtown Los Angeles. Noisey premiered the video today. You can view it here.
The Modern Life was produced and performed by marks at her home studio in Los Angeles. All songs were written by the singer with the exception of two tracks. Johanna Cranitch of White Prism collaborated on lyrics and music for “Boom” and Joel Shearer worked with the singer on music for “Nothing But A Ghost.” Shearer also contributed to the production and plays guitar on the track. AWOLNation’s Isaac Carpenter jumped in on guitar for “The Waves and The Thunder” and “What You Dream Of,” and also offered additional production on the latter track. The album was mixed by Christian “Leggy” Langdon at LEGRoom Studios in LA and was mastered by Francesco Donadello at Calyx Mastering in Berlin.
