Most recently, Marli gained notable success on a co-write with artist Lyra on the track ‘Falling’ that made its way onto a New Music Friday playlist on Spotify after it’s release! We caught up with Marli to ask her about the track, and how the collaboration came to be. Marli said;
“We got on straight away, I’d seen her play live, and she is just an absolute superstar.”
She also said;
“The collaboration worked because sometimes things just come when you have a free channel, when there is an organic connection”
This was the first time the pair had written a song together. The chorus had been constructed, but no one was happy with the verses. After one day together in the studio, the 2 had created something everyone was delighted with. Marli said one of the things that helps her with the creative process is;
“Visualising the video of the track, and drawing inspiration from that”
She said the two had a fantastic working creative energy, and the future holds many more writing sessions for this complimentary creative duo.
