MARLOE. burst onto the scene last year with her stunning self-titled EP, which put her singular brand of dazzling electro-pop on the map. The elegant EP - produced by Grammy-nominated producer Matt Bronleewe and including empowering breakthrough single ‘The Future Is Now’ - saw her balance gut-wrenching pop and heavenly electronica in songs of self-determination, liberation and wounded romance. The release saw her likened to emotive electro-pop titans such as Vera Blue and Lorde.
This unique brand of electro-pop has seen MARLOE. championed on-air by the likes of triple j’s Home and Hosed, triple j Unearthed, 4ZZZ and B105. Her tracks ‘Secrets’ and ‘Remember Me’ both soundtracked an episode of ABC’s ‘The Heights’ and she graced the stage of Mountain Goat Valley Crawl, as well as the Brisbane leg of Austen’s ‘Passenger Seat’ tour. Leaving no stone or achievement unturned, MARLOE. was also chosen for APRA AMCOS’s Songwriting Camp in 2019 and selected by QMusic to attend Sydney’s Electronic Music Conference.
As her debut EP blossomed nationally, MARLOE. also caught the eyes and ears of international audiences, with ‘You Don’t Know Me’ landing a Nissan commercial in the US and ‘The Future Is Now’ charting #1 on the What's In-Store Music Charts, with the single being played over 82,000 times across retail stores in one week in the US.
While MARLOE.’s writing has evolved over the years, what remains constant is a need to exercise her demons and bear witness to the transformation one undergoes throughout their 20s. She takes difficult, altering experiences and extolls the lessons she’s learnt in each and every song. “When I listen back to those songs, it’s a reminder to me how far I've come” she says, “I could only hope that other people can listen to them and gain strength from that growth too.”
