Marie Naffah – Wasteland

London-based singer-songwriter Marie Naffah was creating traction right from the start; she was named MTV’s Unsigned Artist of the Year before even releasing her first song.

Now five singles in, this impressive talent has already delivered a TED Talk, scored a movie for the BFI Female Film Festival, and toured the US and UK (to sell-out venues like Omeara and the Camden Assembly).

The music itself fuses soul and inide-pop together to create a sound that is bold and confident – these songs make a statement and aren’t easily forgotten.

“I wanted the song to move in and out of two lands – The Wasteland and Wonderland. Wasteland – the home of self-doubt, apathy and vulnerability is articulated through the verses whilst Wonderland is a space of confidence, power and energy that pulsates through the chorus. After the year we’ve all had, I feel it is a song for people who seek to find their own version of Wonderland in 2021.”

Taken from her forthcoming EP, which is out later this year.
