MARIKA HACKMAN+ SPECIAL GUESTS
Marika Hackman’s hotly-anticipated new album I’m Not Your Man will be released on 2nd June 2017. To celebrate, she embarks on a UK headline tour this spring, calling at Mama Roux’s Birmingham on 29th May.
The english songwriter was once a craftsperson of mannered, progressive indie-folk. However, her new single, “Boyfriend,” is a swift left-turn—it loudly announces that she’s done playing nice. “I’ve got your boyfriend on my mind/I think you know she stayed with me last night,” she sighs, before twisting the knife: “I held his world in my hands/I threw it out to see where it would land.” Backed by London band the Big Moon, she’s found a muscular sound that feels a world away from the quiet of 2015’s We Slept At Last.
