Dutch singer-songwriter Marle Thomson is one to watch! With her warm and colorful voice and guitar sound, she brings soulful songs about longing, vulnerability and having the courage to open yourself up. Soulful Space Pop, as Thomson calls it herself.
Marle Thomson already made fame in The Netherlands with prominent performances and a well-received 8 track debut EP. She played live on Dutch national radio, prime time Dutch national television, performed at various festivals and stages such as Amsterdam Fashion Week, internationally acclaimed festival Eurosonic-Noorderslag and also as opening act for British singer Heather Peace and Australian singer Mark Wilkinson. In 2018 Marle went on her first ever UK tour.
Surf Rising is the fourth single from the upcoming new EP. It’s another infectious piece of soulful indie electro-pop complete with Latin vibes and vocal harmonies, and it will make you long for a sunny holiday sipping tropical cocktails at the beach!
Marle about new single Surf Rising:
Surf Rising describes this summery lightness you feel with a new love. Enjoy the ride and jump. It’s the feeling of being “high”, the eagerness and freedom. At the same time there is always a bit of insecurity: do you feel the same? Are you ready to jump?
‘Thomson demonstrates that rare type of dedication to authenticity, focusing inwards to find the right balance of sound and spirit and delivering it outwards with passion and care.’ – Music Week (UK)
