Marie & The Atom

Marie & The Atom made music that dealt with moods and rhythms which exist outside the usual space and gait of life.

“Precise harmonious tone poems,” RipItUp writer Jewel Sanyo called it, delivered over a constant (percussive) refrain that took the listener through a landscape of voice, strings and chilled harmony.
