Get Familiar: Marika Hackman

Marika Hackman, 19, is from Brighton, East Sussex and brings with her a delightfully pleasant voice coupled with an acoustic guitar used to create her uniquely folksy sound. Her singing is whimsical yet introspective, and her lyrics can tell a serious story while still maintaining a sense of timeless fun. Hackman’s song “Retina Television” (above) is already being named one of the year’s best by multiple blogs, and she recently released a humorous (albeit a bit NSFW) video for her great track “Bath is Black”. Her mini debut album, That Iron Taste came out in February and is available on iTunes.  So if you like the stuff posted here then I suggest you check it out.
