Marla Mase warps time and house on her new single, ‘8:30’, as she distills her trademark mix of humour and witty sarcasm into darkish and sparkly French pop.
At first look the music nearly has a refined ‘I’m so over this goddamn pandemic’ aura, but it surely’s truly a way more upbeat love music to the park itself. “It’s actually a music devoted to the summer season of 2020,” she notes.
“The park was my joyful place. I might go as usually as I may, nearly each evening. I might sit on my own, take my masks off, and the nervousness would go away. It’s actually about the way to cope with your self if you’re caught at dwelling on daily basis and compelled to not have actual human interplay. I might keep within the park till 12 or 1 o clock at evening as a result of everybody was within the park, not collectively, in fact, but it surely was protected, lovely and enjoyable. Final 12 months lots of people started saying ‘New York is lifeless,’ however I can let you know Brooklyn positively was not. Brooklyn doesn’t die.”
With it’s post-pandemic, pre-apocalyptic grooves that skew simply barely to the left of offbeat and to the correct of enjoyable, ‘8:30’ units an appetite-whetting template for Mase’s upcoming album, The Superb Artwork Of Pissing In The Bushes.
