We find it interesting how things go in music sometimes. When we first heard this single ‘The Pain I Feel’ from MARLON PERCY is lyrically and sonically just as relaxing and poignant as it can be. Reminding us of the vibe of KEANE and EVERYTHING BUT THE GIRL, the refreshing sounds coming out of Marlon is something we can really get behind. On top of that, when layering the gang from LOFRAMES, this single is a fantastic pull at your heart strings of danceable excitements. The digital arrangement is fantastic, familiar; and so very good and satisfying to listen to.
The combination is a gem and a perfect collaborative exercise.
“I wrote this song when I was experiencing both emotional and physical pain at the same time,” explains Marlon. “Writing it was a way to express my current situation and was also a distraction from the harsh realities of life. When I sing this song it takes me to a place of higher realization, almost meditation, and reminds me that sometimes we must feel pain in order to feel pleasure.”
“When Marlon sent us ‘The Pain I Feel’ it was already so personal and full of meaning that we really wanted to give Marlon’s vocals the setting they deserved,” says Loframes’ Franck Russo. “The lyrics were already so powerful and strong, we knew they meant something for Marlon so it was important to do them justice. Just as importantly this collaboration created a strong, new friendship and a spur to future projects we can’t wait to share.”
