What’s goin’ on ladies and gentlemen, welcome back! It’s your boy MadZen and today I’m completely amazed by the quality of music that has reached my ears today. A four-track EP that sounds like nothing you’ve ever heard before. I can’t even pin it down to a single genre. It is truly a one-of-a-kind work of art that deserves all your plays. So, let’s get it!
Marta Per is a young female artist from Portugal who recently moved to London. She has a background as a Classical pianist and is also a multi-instrumentalist in rock, pop, and jazz. An amazing musician who also happens to have an amazing voice. Well, that kind of talent appears only once in a while, and Marta Per definitely has it.
Her debut EP is a musical translation of everything she felt while and after moving from Lisboa to London. Reflective and observational lyrics are included all throughout the EP. It is also a reflection of who she is, both musical and otherwise.
“This EP is a collection of pieces of my identity, both musical and otherwise. It is, not coincidentally, about having to redefine myself in a different environment and phase of life and the struggles that brings along. It’s uncomfortably transparent at times but also filled with riddles and metaphors that will make you want to listen again and again to find their meaning”.Marta Per
Each track is unique and strongly original. Marta’s unique essence poured into every melody, every strum, and every beat. You will listen to tracks like “Take A Deep Breath”, the opening song of the EP, and a soulful introduction to Marta’s music, blending funk, pop, and rock.
“Nobody’s Friend” is an odd-time signature banger, with cleverly written piano riffs and outstanding choruses. But the final riff is my favorite. Next, probably my favorite track is “The Run” a showcase of Marta’s piano and singing abilities, an intimate and emotional song with amazing harmonic qualities.
Last but not least, “Hostage” takes us away with uplifting energy and beautiful instrumental soundscapes. Every note takes us on a sensorial journey, and together with the groovy drums and bass, they create a wonderful ending to this wonderful EP. So, you better
