[video of the week] Marlody – Summer

“Summer” is the first single from Marlody’s debut album “I’m Not Sure At All”, out January 13th 2023 on Skep Wax Records.

Sung from the perspective of a young girl whose mother has died, “Summer” gives a disturbing, eerie picture of an adult world that’s losing its moorings.  The innocence of the child and the sweetness of the music pull us safely through, saving us from the worst of it, but Summer is a perfect example of Marlody’s ability to weave songs so disarming that, for a few minutes, we feel as innocent as the child in the song.  For a while, we don’t notice that summer is over. We don’t notice how dark it’s getting.
