“Leaving” is just one of the simply orchestrated, yet effectively resonant singles found on London-based up and coming artist Marilyn Joy’s latest album “Crystal D’Arke”. For some artists creating music is all about trying to create the most complex arrangement possible, but Marilyn Joy takes a completely different approach with her quaintly enamouring Lo-Fi tracks in which she allows her personality to reflect in the vocals.
The soundscape shares the same authentic sense of artistic expression which you can find on Viv Albertine’s solo album with the lyrics serving to paint a colourful narrative. The friendly keyboard carves out a playful melody against the rhythm of the soft kicks on the drum pad to create an impossibly endearing and artful track.
You can check out Marilyn Joy’s single Leaving for yourselves by heading over to Bandcamp now.
