Last time I posted about U.K. musician Marika Hackman, it was after she posted a cover of Warpaint’s “Burgundy”. Back in November, I had also meant to write about her video for “Drown”, a song off her forthcoming 12-song debut album, “We Slept At Last”, before year-end lists took up the rest of my time. “Drown” immediately reminded me of some of the better style of Aimee Mann, circa “Magnolia”. Now she’s streaming another new track, “Animal Fear”, at soundcloud. “We Slept At Last” is scheduled for release on February 16th via Dirty Hit — the home of The 1975, Benjamin Francis Leftwich and Wolf Alice. Hackman also has a great album cover. Check it out above. — David D. Robbins Jr.
