Marsheaux return with a smooth video for a smooth tune…
One of the best surprises in contemporary electronic music has been the rise of Greek electronic duo Marsheaux. Sophie Sarigiannidou and Marianthi Melitsi have presented a stylish take on electropop ever since the release of their 2003 debut album E-Bay Queen.
In 2016 they returned with a new arsenal of songs care of Ath.Lon (see our review here). Their most recent album takes its name from a compression of Athens and London (a nod to the fact that Marianthi has relocated to London, while Sophie has stayed in Greece).
Ath.Lon was preceded by the synth-pop gem that was ‘Safe Tonight’, its synth hooks demonstrating that Marsheaux continue their flair for melody and accessible pop.
Now a new video has been unveiled for another Ath.Lon cut, this time for the slow-burning ‘Now You Are Mine’. The brooding synth tones give a solid foundation for Marsheaux’s trademark whispery vocals on a particularly dreamy composition. Meanwhile, the video (shot and edited by Undo’s own George Geranios) features a pair of Marsheaux analogues in a series of artful tableaux. Again, it continues the Greek outfit’s tradition of crafting stylish visuals with polished electropop for that perfect combo.
Meanwhile, Marsheaux have also unleashed a limited edition cassette featuring 7 rejected demos from the Ath.Lon recording sessions. All previously unreleased.
As one of electropop’s most distinguished assets, Marsheaux continue to deliver the goods.
