M.A.N is a woman
French-American artist Marina Anne Nolles cultivates a uniquely dark pop sound, explores sombre sobering texts, wrapped in velvet.
M.A.N is a both a sound: fierce and delicate, infused with voodoo blues-folk and Trip Hop; and a cinematographic journey. Enticed easily into the music’s deep voluptuousness the listener may then be brutally plunged to the ground. In this velvet cocoon, sharp-edged words serve to underscore the irony of our violent and beautiful world.
Spotted for the first time at the Electo Alternativ’ Festival of Toulouse in 2016, she has given over 30 performances throughout France (Toulouse, Paris, Bordeaux, Avignon) and has opened for AYO (Phare), Cocoon (Carcassonne), The Noface (I-Boat), etc. She was recently awarded the supporting fellowship Vice Versa (Arts Vivants 11) and plans to release a new E.P in 2019.
