Leone is the debut single from the enigmatic Marina Gasolina released on her own label Anfetamina Records on the 29th November.

Ditching the baile-funk that she is known for and exploring a more experimental electronic sound, this track should win her an army of new fans while keeping her old ones more than interested. The single grabs your attention from the off with synths that could have lurched straight out of Kubrick’s ‘A Clockwork Orange’, but this track is a homage to master of Spaghetti Westerns – Sergio Leone. The urgent, rolling drumbeat mirrors the pounding hooves of the cowboy’s galloping horses (think ‘Johnny remember me’ meets ‘A Fistful of Dollars’). Produced by Etienne Tron (aka Radioclit) and Electronicat, this single is a great example of new meets old with Marina’s vocal delivery sounding like no one else past or present.

After Playing in several punk bands during her teenage years, Marina founded and fronted Domino signed, brazilian baile-funk band Bonde Do Role. After touring the world for two years straight, they released debut album ‘With Lasers’ which was produced by a who’s who of exciting producers such as Diplo, Chernobyl and Radioclit. Marina then left the band to focus on her solo career and broaden her horizons.

She moved to London in 2008 and has passed the time recording tracks for international acts such as Crookers, Herve, Maskinen, Severin, The Go! Team, Metronomy, Acid Kids and Architecture in Helsinki. This led to her building her own, new sound and writing songs with Berlin based Electronicat and the Brazilian one man band O Lendario Chucrobillyman. With connections like this we can expect some rather interesting remixes of Marina’s solo work.

Marina’s self-titled debut solo album was recorded with European beat-makers Radioclit  (with some tracks co-produced by Electronicat) and is currently being mixed. With the live performance being a very important part of her work, she is now showcasing the new material with her live band and going back to her punkier roots.  You can catch her playing the following dates:

Wed 3rd Nov – Notting Hill Arts Club – London

Wed 10th Nov – Lock Tavern, Camden – London
