Long Island indie pop artist Elesa Marmo blends mainstream electropop and light acoustic influences to create the one of a kind sound on her debut EP “Clear Blue,” out TODAY. Although her first time releasing original music on her own, Marmo has most recently been involved in indie duo The Wilts, also based on Long Island. Now delving into mastering her own sound, “Clear Blue” is a beautiful representation of the two sides to Marmo’s artistry; mainstream electronic-tinged pop, and delicate, stripped back ballads. Produced and co-written by Greg Almeida (member of alt rock band VISTA), the EPs four tracks emit a summery feel, containing two upbeat, Carly Rae Jepsen-esque bangers, and two lax, very minimalistic tunes, all also co-written by Marmo. About the release of “Clear Blue,” Marmo states:
“We started recording in July in Greg’s (producer, Almeida) bedroom studio and the whole process was so much fun. I think recording has always been such a liberating feeling for me just getting to experiment and watch songs come to life. The whole experience was therapeutic as well just getting all the feelings I was having out. I’m excited for people to hear the songs and my only goal with songwriting has always been to write honest songs from my life that others can relate to. If they can feel an emotion from the songs then I’ve done my job. I’m excited to perform these songs live and get to see reactions from people.”
