“Both lyrically and sonically, “Ada Road” appeals to all senses” – Atwood Magazine
London based Spanish singer-songwriter MAVICA (Marta Casanova) crafts intoxicating, immersive intimate pop songs as evident in her forthcoming 2-track EP ‘Send Me To The Water’ due this April through Hidden Track Records. Drawing on a myriad of influences from folk, pop, indie and soul, Marta’s delicate vocals invites you into what feels like a deeply personal experience. She pre-empts its release with an elegantly, haunting video clip for ‘Ada Road’.
She says: “I wrote ADA ROAD when I was moving out of my old house. I was desperate for a new home, and felt very lost. It felt like I was jumping into an abyss of nothingness and it was a really scary time, were I didn’t know if it was worth staying in London or not. Because of this uncertainty, I felt like my creative output was changing and I didn’t quite understand where it was going, where I was going. I was born in a small town called Cartagena in the South of Spain where the sea is a big part of life there. In this song i talk about sending me back to the water. When everything was going wrong in London all I wanted was to go back home to the sea. That anxiety almost crushed me and I wrote this song to get it out, like I needed to expel it in some way. “NO IT’S NOT” is a continuation of the musical transition I had with Ada Road, where I confront my issues face on and accept change. It’s a song shrouded in honesty, where I admit I haven’t been good to myself and that expectation will often let you down. But its good to acknowledge this and move on. Through this I realise that my work is a time machine that I can use to look backwards in order to arrive at some point of understanding where I was and where I am at now, accepting change is can only be good”
Originally from Cartagena (Spain), the young artist currently resides in London where she finally found the place and environment to materialise her debut EP. ‘Gone’ (2019) is a collection of songs full of elegant folk pop that landed her a spot at festivals like Mad Cool and Vida Festival, as well as supporting artists such as Roo Panes, Blanco White, Alice Phoebe Lou and Jonathan Wilson. Drawing comparisons with Ex Re, Phoebe Bridgers or Bon Iver, she has been recognised by critics as an artist to watch. Her melancholic and delicate first single “Fire” was described by The Revue as “Simply Stunning” and is already way over a million streams on Spotify, where her monthly listeners are never lower than 80.000.
‘Send me to the Water’ is her sophomore EP that will be out in April. A step forward in her sound and composition, that will include two new tracks full of her personal experiences.
