MARTA REN & THE GROOVELVETS: Release Me (2016) + video

Release Me Marta Ren GroovelvetsRating: ★★★★★ What to release as the next Marta Ren & The Groovelvets single? Perhaps stank soul cut Release Me – one of the highlights of latest album Stop, Look, Listen? Well, it’s in the name isn’t it? But how to represent such a track in an audio-visual medium? How about getting two heavies to strong-arm Marta down into the bowels of some nameless building and leaving her in a room with a dead-eyed inquisitor and a vintage tape machine which is serendipitously there to record our soul sister as she belts out the lyrics? By the end of it, Marta’s in a straitjacket, but the song is on tape. I’m sensing a music industry metaphor. Still, you can’t have soul without struggle. Marta and crew will be on tour this summer – dates below players.
