MAKING HER FULL BAND UK DEBUT, WE ARE DELIGHTED TO WELCOME CATALAN ARTIST MARINA HERLOP TO KINGS PLACE AS PART OF SOUND UNWRAPPED.
MARINA HERLOP might be best known as a classically-trained pianist, but her music goes far beyond her beginnings. The Catalan artist took a stylistic leap on her third album - the PAN-released Pripyat - subverting the piano and vocals of her first two albums with computer-aided electronics and unsettling three-dimensional effects. She was influenced by the vast possibilities of her voice, aiming to unhook it from Western training, looking to South Indian Carnatic music for direction. The result is a sound that bends pop music's often rigid framework, breaking classical traditions and surprising at every turn.
"Evoking Björk’s mischievous vocal tampering… Herlop leans into a thrilling sense of play and invention."_ PITCHFORK _
