about

It will be a glorious day when we see Him descending on that cloud. I really hope He’s coming soon.

lyrics

Take me far away,
Under the bridge where they do cocaine
To the church where they fix your brain
Anything will do.

I wanna stay this way,
Born a needle, but I'm duller now
I’ve wasted years in my hay bale hideout
Making escape plans

And He'll come, descending on a cloud
No ozone left to start one, no faith left to draw a crowd
But he'll come, and as the trumpet sounds,
We'll turn to him together and ask that he turn it down, Turn it down

Who is really safe?
I need answers for the world's mistakes
Getting cancer or a bellyache
Nobody picks their straw

This is how the story ends
I'll rise to the pearly gates
Order fries and a chocolate shake,
While angels pat me down

And He'll come, descending on a cloud
No ozone left to start one, no faith left to draw a crowd
But He'll come, and as the trumpet sounds,
We'll turn to him together and ask that he turn it down, Turn it down

It's not my move to make
I'm just a pawn in checkmate,
A hand-me-down-crown with jewel fakes,
Waiting for my king

When He comes, descending on that cloud
No hay bales left to hide in, no religion left to doubt
When he comes, and I hope he’s coming soon
The world’s already wasted, I’ll rise above the ruin

about

Marika G. Ottawa, Ontario

Marika is what bright, new solo artists from Montreal should sound like.
With a whole mess of familiarity and just a tinge of strange, her unique sound peaks its flagship debut out from the sordid indie alternative pop fog to remind us that good music still exists. She dives into disparate genres every song and makes no excuse for it.
Climb aboard each layer of this shameless emotion-ocean.
