About

Today, Marnie continues to develop her very own take on a modern pop sound through the release of “Lost Maps” taken from her album Strange Words and Weird Wars, out on 2nd June 2017 via Disco Piñata. TheLadytron frontwoman Helen Marnie, aka Marnie, releases the track “Lost Maps” alongside an emotionally charged video via Playboy HERE.

Comprised of ten pulsating tracks, Strange Words And Weird Wars showcases the most impressive elements of Marnie’s incarnation as a solo artist along with those that made her band, Ladytron, one of the most respected pioneers in electronic music; soul crushing synths are wonderfully accented by hook-laden choruses as Marnie boldly explores up-tempo electro dream-pop.The album is on 
iTunes pre-order, and you will instantly receive “Lost Maps”, "Alphabet Block” now and “Electric Youth” on 5.12.

The ability to effortlessly play with genres becomes more and more apparent as you work your way through what is such a sonically impressive record. Tracks such as album opener, the unashamedly melodic “Alphabet Block”, nods to contemporary electro-pop artists. While “Electric Youth” channels 80’s mall pop, think Pat Benatar via M83, a glorious guilty pleasure and one of the stand-out tracks on the album, introspection comes in the form of the shoegaze-inspired“A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night”, giving the air of an unreleased b-side from a cult vampire movie. And while the new single “Lost Maps” should be heard on dancefloors around the world, 
“Summer Boys”echos the hazy days of summer, dreaming big whilst reading stolenMills & Boons books.

Having moved back to Glasgow in September 2012 after many years living in London, Marnie continued to write music following the success of her solo project and subsequent album release in 2013. Influenced by life, love, loss, politics and all things 80’s pop, Marnie has created an album that has an intelligence and a depth behind what, on the surface, is a melodic contemporary pop record.
