Built on a foundation of lush synth pop and blooming forth with a new name, multi-instrumentalist and producer, marsfade is evolving her music with her life experience. The Grand Rapids, Michigan based artist invites her listeners to grow with her as she infuses electronic sensibilities of the past into fresh musical structures. Her music soars with delicate melodies, layered instrumentals, glittering textures, and catchy hooks; all the while her lyrics are a revolving kaleidoscope of intense emotions and personal experience. Formerly a member of the electronic duo, PARTS, marsfade launched a solo career in early 2018 (formerly titled FADE) releasing her first EP, Fall in Love, through the label Luminelle in October of 2018. Described by The Line of Best Fit as “hushed and immediate bedroom pop with a twist. Hypnotic, melancholic, full of anxiety and urgency”, Fall in Love carved out marsfade’s niche in the world of indie synth pop.
As a shy, reclusive person who has struggled with depression and anxiety from a young age, sharing personal art with the world and being ever-present on social media came with a new heightened level of emotional pressure. Having taken the time to focus on her mental health and working out how to best operate as an introverted musician, marsfade returns now with new songs and a new perspective. On her aptly named newest single, “Do U Know What I Mean”, marsfade crafts a song that unfolds like a flower; revealing more layers of musical brilliance and emotional depth with each listen.
