French pop sensation Marina Kaye is ready to take on pop’s throne with the release of her new album Twisted.
Marina Kaye leaves you spellbound with her emotive and dark, enchanting pop.
“There are so many things I can’t express in my everyday life and writing them down and singing them is my only way of letting them out”, says emerging French pop talent Marina Kaye when delving into her songwriting process.
“Like with any emotion, letting them out is hard to do, but very important. I’ve often been asked if writing songs is like a cure and in reality it’s just the beginning of a cure, an essential beginning. Then other times, it can just be fun to toy around with some cool ideas and then relating it back to your own thinking.”
Her new album Twisted, released via PIAS Recordings, is an dark, enchanting record, showcasing Marina’s spellbinding vocals and captivating lyricism that shows she’s not afraid to wear her heart on her sleeve.
With co-writing duties from David Stewart and Jessica Agombar, the pair behind BTS’ mega hit Dynamite, Twisted is full of deeply personal and honest moments across a sprawling palette of huge ballads, r&b and electronica.
Recorded between Los Angeles and London, the sessions culminated in massive tracks like single 7 Billion and Scream.
Twisted marks an exciting new chapter for Marina.
She was thrust into the limelight aged just 13 when she won La France a un incroyable talent – France’s equivalent of Britain’s Got Talent – and saw her debut single Homeless hit number one in her native country.
Her chart-topping debut album Fearless is now certified triple platinum.
Now aged 22, she’s spent the time in between honing her craft, releasing its follow up Explicit in France, before releasing Twisted – her first to drop in the UK.
