“In an era where albums are a disposable commodity that we rarely possess, never mind physically hold, I wanted to present a beautiful piece of art that reflected the care and love taken in the making of the music itself.”
Featuring some of the very best guitar-work & melodic story-telling around, with organic rock soundscapes to support & enhance the mood of each track, Apparitions proves as nostalgic as it is refreshing, and continuously begs for you to turn up the volume.
This is the artist and composer lost in the moment, the guitarist at one with the guitar, and it feels partly reminiscent of a simpler time, partly of a genuinely new and exciting artistry.
Featuring a blues-rock backdrop that quietly progresses through its rise & fall, the track follows the building intensity & passion of a leading guitar solo – a performance that progresses from simple & reflective, to outright impressive & beautifully hypnotic.
As an artist, MARKK offers up a notably characterful voice & performance style. This sort of RnB-influenced melody is not often presented by what appears as a fairly indie-rock-like leading voice, there’s a lot of grit & passion to the sound.
A winning formula, successfully fusing the grit & realness of rock with a fairly polished level of production that allows the song to shine brightly.
