Before that though, she’s shared a new video for ‘Time’s Been Reckless’, and in the tradition of all Marika’s videos from her latest album, it’s a bit of a corker. It references the artwork for the new album while switching between 35mm film and glitchy, lo-fi FX around Marika and her band. Oh, and there’s a giant snail at one point, who looks very into Marika’s work.
Speaking about the video, Marika said: “I wanted to do a performance video to highlight the energetic nature of the music, but I also wanted more gruesome visuals to reflect the dark themes of death and decay within the lyrics. We filmed maggots, snails and various other insects feeding on different foods from the album artwork, in a style that harks back to those old VHS tapes teachers would put on in biology lessons”.
As mentioned, Marika will begin a 10-date trip around the UK in Brighton on 13th November, and finish with a massive date at London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire on 23rd November. Tickets are on sale now.
