marika hackman

Beguiling, this honey shimmers in under the cover of a twilight shade, the forthcoming EP from Marika Hackman entitled ‘sugar blind’ is due to arrest sometime in December. Already praised in various quarters of the musical press and oft compared with both Nico and Joanna Newson, we alas missed her debuting mini album, Ms Hackman cooks up an affectionately shy eyed and flighty cornucopia of spectral folk dashed in wheezing electronics and trimmed in mystery and magik. Heading up her aforementioned EP is ‘cinnamon’ and ghostly psych folk siren dimpled in a magicalia mosaic that silently treads delicately spun to a spectral carousel, the textures amorphous and ethereal arc and genuflect to an enchanting and fragile apparition like wooziness to flower into a crookedly hazed dream coat whose lazy eyed lilt traces gently the groove lines of Linda Perhacs ’parallelograms’ whilst wrapping the feast with a parting refrain that slyly nods to Radiohead’s ’all I need’.
