“I don’t know what to do to get you out of my head.”

“In My Head” by Marylane | A few weeks ago my earphones died on me and I was forced to buy new ones – different ones. In-ears. The exact ones Shalla has; she loves her bass and swears by it. (I have mostly avoided in-ears because people will hate me for not being able to respond to them.) I listened to this track expecting something sweet, to be honest – the early comparison I got from the PR was on Kate Bush. I was getting the comparison until the bass crept in. It literally rumbled for five seconds until it was inescapable, and suddenly, the song was different. Still Kate Bush-esque, yes, but different. Marylane is a Zurich three-piece that love their electronics, but this is a piece that doesn’t feel cold – it does feel a bit creepy, though; as “In My Head” goes on you feel closed in and everything is crumbling down. (The fact that this closes their upcoming album, Grow and Fade, says a lot.) There’s a string of hope, figuratively, in Larissa Bretscher’s vocals, but the combining of her, Nicolas Stocker and Christian Wyss’ tweaks make it all foreboding. Somewhat apt for today, somehow. To A Stranger drops this Friday. [NB] (Have things I should hear? Drop me a line here.)
