Marika Hackman: Before I Sleep
From a spur of releases off her upcoming album comes the haunting lullaby “Before I Sleep”. Hackman described it as the unanimous album favorite of her mother, brother, and granny, and this familial approval is not unfounded: the track feels the most Marika-esque of her new music. For longtime listeners, it feels like a cozy hug from an old friend. Enchanting, twinkly fingerpicking provides a pretty contrast to the deep serenity of the vocals, enhanced by lyrics that lament a love gone wrong. Pick up her debut album We Slept At Last on the 16th of February.
