Marsheaux – A Broken Frame LP

marsheaux_cover

Greek electro pop duo Marsheaux has paid a wonderful tribute to one of their favourite albums of all time and one of the most underrated synth pop albums of the 80’s. They have covered track by track, the full Depeche Mode’s “A Broken Frame”, their 1982 album that signaled the start of Martin Gore’s lead songwriting dues for their rest of their career. Marsheaux put their gentle female touch to all time classic masterpieces (“Leave In Silence”,”My Secret Garden”, “See You”) as well as such less known gems as “The Sun And The Rainfall”, “Monument” and “Shouldn’t Have Done That”. “A Broken Frame” lands in 2015 with total grace and a haunting atmosphere that refresh its long lasting myth.

As Marianthi & Sophie explain, “‘A Broken Frame’ is undoubtedly a mythical album that stands as a tremendous challenge to dare cover it in full. In our minds “A Broken Frame” is the most underestimated Depeche Mode album, that needs to find its fair place in the course of Depeche Mode’s career.? When we started recording the first demos many said that the whole idea wasn’t good at all but we had faith in it and treated it with love and respect.We know that it sounds strange to listen to “Leave In Silence” and “My Secred Garden” with female vocals. Even we feel surprised! But we hope that we give a whole new dimension to it. And we hope that you’ll love it as we did love it during the recording process.

Fotonovela feat. Marsheaux – Close To Me

Five years after their debut album “Mistakes Are Good”, Greek electronic duo of Nikos Bitzenis and George Geranios, a.k.a. Fotonovela, are back with a new song, a back-to-the-future twist. “Close To Me” is a song tailor made for the new generation of electro poppers that is aware of the 80’s music, only through the myth of it. The vocals of the song are sung by Marsheaux. “Close To me” will be included in the new Fotonovela album (title TBA) full of guest vocalists, with such names as James New (Mirrors), Bethany Cassidy (Section 25), Sarah Blackwood (Dubstar, Client), Echoes, Lacquer, Daryl Smith (They Go Boom), Patrick (The Claps), Kid Moxie and Jay Jay Johanson. In case you missed it, check out their collaboration with James New here. Out soon on Athens based Undo Records.

MARSHEAUX – Inhale [2013]

Four years after the release of “Lumineux Noir” and just one year after their collectable compilation “E-Bay Queen Is Dead”, Athens based electro-pop duo Marsheaux return with their fourth album. The girls, Marianthi and Sophie come back for a new bunch of modern electro pop songs that pump up the volume of the beats and build a bridge to connect the evergreen Giorgio Moroder and the eccentric Fever Ray of The Knife fame.

The tracks “Self Control” and “End Is A New Start” that open and close the album respectively, sound like strong electro pop epics. Between these two, Marsheaux pay tribute to italo-disco (“Secret Place”, the girls’ favourite track out of the album accodding to their interview in Electronic magazine), to beat music of the 60’s with a B-52’s element (“Inhale”), to pop music as crafted by Dubstar and their friend Sarah Blackwood (“To The End”), to Munich’s eurobeat scene that makes the sound style of such groups as the scandinavian duet Icona Pop, relevant (“Come On Now”) to the Pet Shop Boys of the new era (“Alone”), to the refreshing breakbeats(“Never Stop”), to the summer laziness like the one of Saint Etienne’s (“August Day”) and to the nirvana of a repetitive motif that transcends you with safety inside its whirlwind (“Over And Over”). The “Inhale” album has been released with one bonus cd with remixes from Echoes, Cicada, Metroland, Lacquer, Mark Reeder, Parralox and greek local artists Tareq, Rolla Scape and Niadoka.

In the last two years, Marsheaux were preparing their new album and made a guest appearance in Rolla Scape’s album (a project of well known and respective greek producer – songwriter K. Bhta) singing in the track “Heaven Is Real”. They also made a collaboration with the obscure electro pop 80’s act Twins Natalia for a split single that has been released by Anna Logue Records: Marsheaux cover Twin Natalia’s “When We Were Young” and Twin Natalia cover Marsheaux’s “Radial Emotion”.

 “We certainly don’t write them as standard pop songs. When we are working on a song, a sound, a noise , a melody gives us a hint about the path we are going to take each time, sometimes they are related to real experiences, sometimes to something we heard, we don’t have a standard procedure.
