Marika Hackman’s hotly-anticipated new album I’m Not Your Man will be released on 2nd June 2017. To celebrate, she embarks on a UK headline tour this spring, calling at Mama Roux’s Birmingham on 29th May.
The english songwriter was once a craftsperson of mannered, progressive indie-folk. However, her new single, “Boyfriend,” is a swift left-turn—it loudly announces that she’s done playing nice. “I’ve got your boyfriend on my mind/I think you know she stayed with me last night,” she sighs, before twisting the knife: “I held his world in my hands/I threw it out to see where it would land.” Backed by London band the Big Moon, she’s found a muscular sound that feels a world away from the quiet of 2015’s We Slept At Last.
Marika Hackman plays Mama Roux’s Birmingham on Mon 29th May 2017, with support from Our Girl and Francobollo. Tickets available here.
