Marika Hackman previews new album with the stunning ‘Animal Fear’

London songwriter’s also announced plans to host an exhibition showcasing ‘We Slept At Last’’s LP artwork.

On 16th February, Class of 2015 alumni Marika Hackman releases her striking debut album ‘We Slept At Last’. Today she’s unveiled the latest track to be taken from the Charlie Andrew-produced first work. She’s also announced plans to host her own exhibition, documenting the expansive album art, shot by photographer Glen Erler.

‘Animal Fear’, streaming below, is one of several examples of Marika expanding the folk parameters that contained her first two EPs. Herself and Andrew seem intent on pushing the boat out, with this latest take sporting reverb-lined guitars and deep, spacious production. Within it all is a lurking darkness - no surprise, given the song’s about resisting the urge to become a werewolf.

Below our premiere of ‘Animal Fear’, Marika explains the meaning behind the track, as well as her ambitious plans to host an exhibition next month.

18th February sees Marika performing her album in full at The Cob Gallery, with 70 tickets available here. Alongside the performance, the gallery will host photographs that make up the 24-page art booklet for ‘We Slept At Last’.

Pre-order the album on vinyl here, CD here.
