Marion Raw has released another track from her recent album ‘Deep Cuts’. We really enjoy a bit of Marion so we suggest you give ‘Hideaway’ a listen and a watch. Then read more words below. Then give the album a listen.
Spending much of her childhood in airports and hotels, all the accents and stories a young Raw overheard were embedded in her mind, ultimately shaping the moving pictures around each song on Deep Cuts: “I was always fascinated by adults talking about their lives, and I feel that has strongly colored a lot of my writing,” shares Raw, also the singer/songwriter in Mexican rock band Love La Femme “The melodic accents I was exposed to frequently visit me when I write—from the southern Texan twang to London’s melodic swagger—it’s all very present within my histrionic Mexican roots.”
Raw and bare boned, Deep Cuts is comprised of home recordings and capsuled broadcasts. Each track is sewn together to create a ghostly snapshot of a long lost cassette, unearthed far from home, broadcasting into an unknown, perhaps (not so) distant future. “There was no planning, polishing, or budget for that matter,” says Raw of the DIY production of Deep Cuts, “just some left over blank tapes, an old four-track Tascam, and the imminent sense of doom that accompanied the first lockdown of 2020.”
Deep Cuts travels on a ghost highway somewhere between the Mexican – U.S. border, traversing a haunting terrain laden with unpolished collections of covers and original recordings — tattered Americana musical postcards — all completed on an old dusty four-track. Deep Cuts is due out in April 2021. The album unearths Raw’s solo career, and will be followed by an already recorded and produced Sophomore release and accompanying visuals
