Marlovers - (Stalking) You
A rush of guitars and keys, with achingly beautiful female vocals and classic melodies makes (Stalking) You from Spain's Marlovers one of those under the radar gems that you need to experience. Listening to this album is a bit like letting warm, gentle waves lap over you as you sit on the beach on a perfect summer evening. Dream to it, fall in love to it, make eye babies to it, but in any case sample the two tracks below, and then go to the Bandcamp page and stream the entire album. You'll find that picking the best track is a fool's game, because there is too much consistency to make a reasonable choice (that said, don't miss "Bittergum").
Marlovers have been a band since 2005, but (Stalking) You is their first LP. It is out now via Jigsaw Records.
