MARINA - Orange Trees | Song Review


 MARINA is getting ready to drop her next album titled 'Love + Fear'.

When I last reviewed MARINA, I feel like I was a little harsh. The lead single for this new era 'Handmade Heaven' didn't feel like the best fit to start a new era but MARINA has now released the third song from the upcoming album called 'Orange Trees'.

MARINA made a statement when she released 'Handmade Heaven' saying it wasn't a true reflection of what the album will be filled with and what I have heard from 'Orange Trees', I am liking the sound. I hope the sound that is present on 'Orange Trees' is a frequent sound we hear through out the album(s). I am now really looking forward to her album!

The song is all about her time when she lived in Greece with her father. Describing and making listeners picture what a beautiful country it is. MARINA confirmed the meaning of the song by posting on her Instagram story saying 'It's so light and fresh. I love it, and it was written about a island i'm from in Greece'.

I really like the song - it is so refreshing. It has a tropical vibe which is what you would expect from a song about Greece. It is certainly one of my favourites from the album so far (from what we have heard) and I am excited to hear the rest of the songs.

Overall Rating:

★★★★☆

Prodigal - When We Bleed

Prodigal is an Alternative Pop/Rock artist from Finland. The nature of his music is to be an eccentric mix of all the different styles he listens to and creates something catchy, immediate and current out of it all. His new single 'When We Bleed' was released independently ahead of his upcoming debut album. 'When We Bleed' reflects on a world where every decision and action seems to be motivated by blatant narcissism of some kind. Trying to navigate these odd times, the song tries to find relief in numbers and the fact that for better or worse, we're never really alone in trying to make sense of it all.
