BILLIE MARTEN – ” This Is How We Move “

Posted: January 19, 2023 in MUSIC

Billie Marten releases her fourth record “Drop Cherries” via Fiction Records. Recorded entirely on tape in Somerset and Wales late last summer, “Drop Cherries” marks the very first time that Billie Marten has both written and co-produced (with Dom Monks) one of her records; following critically-lauded 2021 album “Flora Fauna, Feeding Seahorses by Hand” (2019) and “Writing of Blues and Yellows” (2016).

The title is taken from a tale she heard from a friend just before she was starting to create songs for the album, and the title track came soon after. It’s a metaphor where the gift of cherries stands for offering someone your love; doing anything you can to make them happy. “Dropping cherries,” she begins, “is such a strong, visceral image that I tried to channel throughout recording in Somerset and Wales, to capture the vibrancy, unpredictability, and occasional chaos one experiences within a relationship

The new album ‘Drop Cherries’ out 7th April.
