Long Island-based indie alt pop vocalist Elesa Marmo has released a new single, titled “Strawberry Candy,” out on all digital platforms NOW. The single is the first follow up to her debut EP, “Clear Blue,” released in early 2018. With pure elements of electronic pop, alt, and indie, Marmo successfully combines these influences with ease, producing dreamy ear candy.
About the single, Marmo states:“This song I wanted to be really fun and just completely sarcastic. I wanted to capture the feeling of being “ghosted” but in a whole other view where instead of making the person upset it sort of gives them a reason to keep trying. I brought this song to Greg Almeida who produced the track, with just a voice memo of my vocal melody and some piano chords and we sat in his room and just made the song come alive and we experimented with different sounds and sound bites like the dial tones and phone operator voice.”
Elesa Marmo is a singer/songwriter from Long Island, New York. Marmo has most recently been involved in indie duo The Wilts, also based on Long Island. After many years of wanting to pursue music, as well as releasing music with The Wilts, Marmo released her debut EP, titled “Clear Blue,” which blends mainstream electropop and light acoustic influences, in early 2018. “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 (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. Growing up listening to a large variety of mainstream pop artists, her original music is heavily influenced with electronic sounds and soft acoustic feels. Her brand new single “Strawberry Candy,” the first music released since her debut EP, is an expansion of the sound she pieced together on “Clear Blue.” Marmo’s new single “Strawberry Candy” is available on all digital platforms now.
