Line of Best Fit: “delectable slice of electropop goodness“

“Eugene Marie return with a stunning, self-titled EP full of humorous and sometimes quite troubling stories and anecdotes. ‘It’ll Never Be This Good’ is taken from the EP and sounds a bit like Judy Garland fronting a synth pop band. Images of Grace Kelly twirling a parasol around a 1940s swimming pool in Bellevue Avenue instantly spring to mind, whilst the soft electronica gives the whole piece a ‘80s nostalgia feel. This is essentially Hepburn in spandex sweating to ‘80s workout music.”

Nice Smell

Ah...

Hey what do you say?
Hey what do you say, baby?

Nice smell, nice confidence baby
Nice smell, nice confidence baby

Hey, what do you say baby, wanna take those lips
And turn this frog into a prince?
Oh yeah that's what I said
See you later princess (nice smell)

Come here, I don't bite
Just wanna talk to you
Come here, don't you bite
I only wanna talk to you

Hey what do you say?
Hey what do you say?

You're a beautiful lady, you're a beautiful lady
You're a beautiful lady (nice smell)

You're a beautiful lady, you're a beautiful lady
You're a beautiful lady (nice smell)

Oh, you're a beautiful lady, you're a beautiful lady
You're a beautiful lady (nice smell)

Ah...

The Deli NYC: Eugene Marie drops new single, “Nice Smell”

“Catcalling is one of the more frustrating aspects of living in the big apple, and being on the receiving end of incessant lines of creepy comments can be uncomfortable if not downright terrifying. What’s a girl to do? In the case of Lucy Marie Horton, one half of electro-pop duo, Eugene Marie, you turn it into music. The group’s newest track, ‘Nice Smell,’ features lyrics exclusively culled from the mouths of her street harassers. Though transforming predatory phrases into a pointed pop hit is a feat, Eugene Marie pulls it off seamlessly; crafting a piece that is playful and melodic, but also thrusts the dialogue surrounding catcalling further into the public realm.

NYLON: Eugene Marie’s Song Made Up Of Catcalls Is All Too Relatable

“ ‘Nice Smell,’ Eugene Marie’s new single, is made up of actual lines men have said to Horton. The concept sounds kitschy, and it could be if not done right, but both Horton’s vocals and her bandmate Spencer Stewart’s soundscape additions manage to turn otherwise creepy lines into a folksy pop bop.”

Crack In The Road on Money: “addictive take on experimental pop”

Crack In The Road on Money: “addictive take on experimental pop”

“Eugene Marie’s ambitious debut track, They Scared, put them on the radar as one of Brooklyn’s finest new acts, and their second offering, Money, yet again showcases their addictive take on experimental pop. Somewhere between the radio friendly energy of Sylvan Esso and the more left field genius of Grimes deep cuts, it’s the sign of a group determined not to be limited to a singular particular style.”

Money

I want money, money, money.

I want my money.

They Scared

I call her everyday, my baby girl
She was crying everyday, my baby girl
She crying everyday, we praying everyday
And she had twins today, my baby

I call her on the phone
My baby, she stop crying

But us women, we were chosen
We were chosen to carry our children

To carry our children

Thank you for sharing this moment, this moment, oh
Thank you for sharing this moment, this moment
Thank you for sharing this moment, this moment, oh
Thank you, thank you

You know people, they scared
They just keep walking, oh
You know people, they scared
They just keep walking

Ah

You know people, they scared
They just keep walking, oh
You know people, they scared
They just keep walking

But us women, we were chosen
But us women, we were chosen
But us women, we were chosen
Carry our children

But us women, we were chosen / People they scared, people they scared
But us women, we were chosen / People they scared, people they scared

I call her everyday, I call her everyday
I call her everyday, my baby

“They Scared” Premiere by Crack In The Road

“They Scared” Premiere by Crack In The Road

“This fantastic debut single...is the perfect blend of Björk’s unconventional left field exuberance, and Sylvan Esso’s odd-pop earworms. Inspired by a chance encounter that Lucy had with a woman in the street, which forms the lyrical centre piece of the track, They Scared is blisteringly unique and one of the most exciting debut tracks I’ve heard in quite some time. Part of an EP expected later in the year, here’s hoping the rest of their releases are as ambitious and genre-bending.”

Can’t Take That Away From Me

The way you wear your hat
The way you sip your tea
The memory of all that

No no no no they
No no no no they
No no no no they
Can't take that away from me

The way your smile just beams
The way you sing off-key
The way you haunt my dreams

No no no no they
No no no no they
No no no no they
Can't take that away from me

We may never, never meet again on this bumpy road to love
But I'll always, always keep the memory of

The way you hold your knife
The way we dance till three
The way you changed my life

No no no no they
No no no no they
No no no no they
Can't take that away from me

We may never, never meet again on this bumpy road to love
But I'll always, always keep the memory of

The way you hold your knife
The way we dance till three
The way you changed my life

No no no no they
No no no no they
No no no no they
Can't take that away from me

No no no no they
No no no no they
No no no no they
Can't take that away from me
