Beautifully emotive pop from upcoming British-based artist MARNEY, with a song that reflects on silver screen dreams and nightmares.
It’s a sound that carries a cinematic aesthetic which feels elevated and epic, yet carries subtle hints of melancholy.
‘California’ was co-written with Adam Argyle (Dua Lipa, James Bay, Ava Max), who also co-produced the song with James Earp (Lewis Capaldi, LP).
“When I wrote the song, I had this image of someone trudging home at 3am, dressed as Superman, after a night of flyering in Hollywood. I thought of how sad it is for Superman to be so desperate and so invisible there… That idea really carried the song and then the video that I made.”
