Up and coming Danish group Marshall Cecil, recently released a new single ‘Soliloquy (Wouldn’t Feel Alone)’, alongside cinematic visuals directed by Vice Media Creative Director Emil Asmussen and cinematographer Niels Borup.
Self-released through their own label Heady, the complex track takes us on a symbolic journey through front man Daniel Abraham’s mind. Speaking on the track, the lead singer and songwriter explains; “it’s a self-examining conversation with myself that spins out of control and ends in a cathartic rap. It’s a song open for interpretation but for me it’s about the relation between excessive self-examination and loneliness.”
Addressing social isolation, a phenomenon increasingly common in an era where the physical is being replaced by the digital, the visuals feature auto-fictional elements including iPhone clips, personal footage from the trio’s recording sessions and live shows, alongside more intimate images showing a glimpse of the lead singer’s daily life.
Having made their mark on the internationalmusic scene with a series of enthralling singles and videos, gaining praise from the likes of Vice/Noisey and Clash Magazine, and notching up memorable live performances at some of the biggest internationalfestivals including Reeperbahn and Roskilde – Marshall Cecil is not like any other band out there. Using their individual production skills, fusing elements from r&b, pop, hip-hop, with ‘Soliloquy’ they created a unique and potent music formula, one that is both triumphant, forward-thinking and touching at the same time.
