"It's actually incredibly lonely, introspective and self deprecating..."

Marika Hackman has reached a new phase in her life.

The songwriter entered the studio recently, aiming to channel some potent feelings in her life in a new way, in a fresh manner.

Deploying synthesisers at the centre of her sound, Marika Hackman then began picking at the emotional scars that litter the surface of her skin.

New single 'i'm not where you are' is the result. Co-produced by David Wrench it lyrically deals with a break up, but it flips these messages around to depict something incredibly lonely, introspective and self deprecating..."

She says ‘i’m not where you are’ “is about breaking up with people, or self-sabotaging relationships. That feeling of not trusting ones emotions because you can’t seem to get to the same place as the other person.”

“On the surface it seems like an arrogant ‘everybody falls in love with me’ kind of song but it's actually incredibly lonely, introspective and self deprecating...”

A bold return, 'i'm not where you are' finds Marika Hackman throwing off expectations on a remarkable new single.
