Some may look to music for the instrumental melodies wrapped around layers of harmony, yet others, look for a connection, to hear the expression and poetry which comes to life through the lyricism. And the latter is exactly what Marilyn Joy has cooked up with her latest single “Crisis”.
In a spoken word style, the single unfolds in a way which would surely please fans of John Cooper Clarke, George the Poet and Kate the Tempest. The beat may be kept fairly simple to Crisis, yet, the same can’t be said for the lyrics which hook you in from the first verse and really draw you in through the imagery contained within the London-based artists introspection.
Head on over to Bandcamp to stream and download Marilyn Joy’s latest single Crisis which featured on her album “Crystal D’Arke”.
