The track sees the artist incorporating a litany of sounds to create something that feels refreshingly new yet dreamily accessible.
Marliii is an artist who does not shy away from taking creative risks or doing the unexpected. Latest single ‘Clearly’ is one that is a wonderful example of this. The track has a dreamy, indie-chill quality that feels remarkably easy to listen to and gravitate towards, but it is when you look a little deeper that you see the nuance and guile that the artist has had when composing it.
The track’s narrative is one of solitude and a longing to be heard, one that has possibly never felt more appropriate than in the current climate. Musically though, the track incorporates things like jazz-centric embellishments and R&B backbeats, and unusual combination of sounds, but never one that feels forced or out of place.
‘Clearly’ is a juxtaposition of a track that is both ambitious and daring yet endearingly accessible and radio-ready. The track represents a risk for Marliii that has emphatically paid off.
