Marika Hackman is a ‘Rid of Me’-era PJ Harvey for the inclusive generation: unbounded by musical genre, a preternatural lyricist and tunesmith who isn’t afraid to go there. Hackman’s 2015 debut, ‘We Slept at Last’, was heralded for being nuanced and atmospheric.
She really found her footing with her last release, ‘I’m Not Your Man’, and its sybaritic, swaggering International hit ‘Boyfriend’. Marika’s new sound sees her dive into herself, peeling back the skin further and further, exposing herself in a big way, creating something for people to react to.
Having recently released a new track “i’m not where you are”, Marika is gearing up to an exciting year of touring.
