Track Premiere: Marika Hackman ft. Sivu – ‘Skin’

There is something symbiotic amid the vocal palettes of Brighton’s Marika Hackman and London’s latest resident, Sivu. Alone they resonate separate entities; empowering from different sides of the musical spectrum. Put together and their sounds seamlessly correlate, combining to create something truly enticing, while still alluding to individual prominence. It’s no wonder then, that the two have unveiled a unique collaboration ahead of their joint headline tour, with the two artists writing a song for the other to feature on. Today, we have the exclusive premiere of Marika’s ‘Skin’. The track – produced by shared collaborator Charlie Adams (Alt-J) – is a further indication of their dual capabilities. It’s a back-and-forth ballad that builds on tainted melancholy in a captivating acoustic tale. You can download ‘Skin’ for free here and take a listen below:
