Now Playing: Marika Hackman – 'i’m not where you are'

Monday, May 6, 2019

Marika Hackman late last month unleashed her bold new single 'i'm not where you are'. There's been some speculation of an upcoming record after she left a cryptic hangman clue on social media (A _ _ H _ _ _ _ F _ _ _ _ _ for those of you playing at home), and after listening to 'i'm not where you are' on loop, we're in desperate need of a new album by Marika Hackman.

Marika Hackman is a master of defying the laws of genre — and her latest single is further proof of why she's a force to be reckoned with.

'i'm not where you are' is about breaking up, on the track, she said, "'i'm not where you are' "is about breaking up with people, or self-sabotaging relationships. That feeling of not trusting one's emotions because you can't seem to get to the same place as the other person.  On the surface it seems like an arrogant 'everybody falls in love with me' kind of song but its actually incredibly lonely, introspective and self-deprecating."

Along with sharp words like, "Cause baby there's a line between / your faith and what I had in mind  / I'm so bored of that", you can hear bold synths and bouncy guitars.
