PREMIERE: Marle Thomson shares new single “More” Acoustic (Nu-future-soul)

As we wrapped up another premiere week, we are heading over to Amsterdam where we find Nu-future-soul singer and songwriter Marle Thomson who is back with her quite unique and highly addictive (pun intended) newest single, an acoustic version to her successful track “More”. In it, she keeps using her trademark, a combination of soul, folk and electronic sounds that blends perfectly with her melodic voice creating a track filled with random yet beautiful layers.

Since starting at a young age at her parents’ piano, she has discovered the different colours of her voice growing up and “just couldn’t stop singing!” After joining the church gospel choir, she moved on and experienced performances as a soloist in front of a public. In February of 2016, Marle launched her EP “THE CANOPY – ACOUSTIC” in the packed Paradiso venue in Amsterdam, which was entirely decorated with forty trees and plants to give the audience a total experience. The title of this EP symbolizes the writing process and the stratification in the songs. For her first single MARLE worked with a young Amsterdam video artist, Kamiel Rongen, who made a very special video for the song “Levitation”. The video was featured on Dezeen and had a week-long Power Premiere on VEVO.

Light, playful guitar and emphatic vocals open an entirely acoustic and lyrically dreamy musical poem which breathes with childlike fascination at the world. Lyrics hint at the paradoxical nature of love, and Thomson plays freely with timing, launching into slower sections to create rhythmic variation. With elements of jazz and folk coming into play, “More (Acoustic)” is at its heart wistful and skittish.

Of the album, Marle Thomson says: “For this album I wanted to go back to the essence of the songs, the way they were written, using only my guitar and voice. Not being able to hide behind a full production and other instruments, I pushed myself to even get closer to the songs, the meaning, and the lyrics. It means making an even stronger connection to my emotions and being able to connect to the audience. I really hope that the listener gets the feeling they are with me in my living room, where I literally recorded most of the songs.”
