Single Review – Marika Hackman – Boyfriend 

Marika Hackman returns with what is seemingly the follow up material from her debut 2015 album We Slept At Last. It was a solid if not spectacular debut with subtle Indie tracks across the album. Her new track sees Marika take her sound down the path of a natural evolution with similar loose riffs, but at a higher volume and with a distorted guitar part to supplement it. Her lyrics are sharper as they tell of interruptions from particularly meatheaded guys who want to join in whilst she’s kissing someone. These lyrics go hand in hand with the more charged sound whilst her vocals still gently idle from one line to another albeit it with a greater projection. Certainly an interesting development from an artist with much potential.
