Norwegian group MARBLES release stellar new dream pop LP

Kolbotn based indie pop / dream pop / chill wave group MARBLES release new LP Humour just in time for spring.

If you're looking for some breezy, warm-hearted indie pop tunes to set the vibes as the seasons begin changing, the new LP from MARBLES out today is a great potential soundtrack to your spring. Hailing from Kolbotn, the black metal capital of Norway, the music of MARBLES sounds about as dramatically different from the stereotypical idea you might have of the music this nordic country tends to produce, with a colorful indie pop sound that bridges the gap between washed out guitar-driven dream pop ala Wild Nothing and the more synthy chillwave style of artists like Toro Y Moi and Glass Animals.

Some highlights from within the album include "Make It Work" and a stunning closer "Cold Water" that leads with a jangly acoustic guitar before submerging it in the synth work the band is most known for. The band have also established the colorful visual world of their music via accompanying videos, including one for lead single “Heading Out” that makes literal the song’s theme of escaping city life for some much needed R&R in the splendor of nature. By contrast, “One Of A Kind” video shows off the band’s cheeky sense of humor (no pun intended), performing in front of a green screen backdrop and cannily leans into the goofiness and obvious fakeness of its setup; inserting lead singer Ferdinand Widmer into screensaver type backdrops like one of those photo booth Karaoke machines you'd find at the mall.
