The moving track continues to establish the artist as an authentic and engaging voice in modern alt-pop.
On the delicate new single ‘Gramercy’, alt-pop singer-songwriter Marina Laurendi seems to have bottled up the feeling of when you first fall head-first into a whirlwind romance and find yourself swept off your feet.
The track has a really romantic and candid feel to it, with the artist taking on a conversational tone and explaining the way that she feels and how she wants to be treated in a vulnerable and emotionally rousing manner, in an almost Lana Del Rey-like fashion. Sonically, the track is full of lush soundscapes, with the euphoria of this relationship captured within the sound, and the personable authenticity of the vocals. There is a really relatable and heartwarming feel to the track, and it continues to set Marina aside as a thoughtful artist with a distinctive charisma and sense of charm.
“We’ve all had those once in a lifetime romances that knock the wind out of us and make us feel intoxicated. There is such a specific and addicting kind of power that comes from feeling like the object of someone’s attention and desire, and a feeling of worthiness that comes from being treated with such exclusivity. At our core, I think we all desire to be wanted and treated like rare gems– we want to feel sacred, protected, and worth a million dollars. What’s more like that than the key to Gramercy Park?”
