New Song for Marina Bloom 'Not Another Ballad' Due For Release 17th May

10 May 2019 - 0 Comments

Russian-born kiwi singer/songwriter Marina Bloom announces new single Not Another Ballad for imminent release!

On May 17th, the enigmatic vocalist will release her latest song which is a notable departure from her usual softer offerings. 'Not Another Ballad' is a bid to appease her band with an upbeat foot-stomping tune, worthy of a turn on the dance floor.

Marina has been writing ballads with her good friend and lyricist Michael Davis for three years. These ballads have garnered attention: national radio interviews; international awards; a viral music video in 2016 with her silky pop ballad Heroes; a #1 position on the New Zealand iTunes Dance chart with This Feeling (ft. mPHATic); and most recently nabbed a highly-coveted top 5 placement in LA-based Songwriter Universe’s ‘Best Song of the Month’ contest!

If it were up to Marina, she’d sing ballads all day, every day. But her band had other ideas.

During the latest unveiling of one such ballad to her musical team, the band were less than enthused about playing another down-tempo song, unsurprisingly the jokes were led by the drummer… “oh god, not another slow song…” Some songwriters would sack the band, Marina listened and turned their jests into the next single.

The result is a foot-stomping, hand-clapping ear-worm with a country/disco feel and by popular demand – a quick tempo. Listening to this song you imagine sitting in an old American saloon bar nursing a cheap beer while the crowd are hovering somewhere between a line-dance and a brawl.

Think Shania Twain and the Dixie Chicks hanging out with Avicii and you’d likely agree, an anthem to a good night!

Follow Marina on Spotify so you can listen as soon as it's released!
