Why do I make the most of every single time you stay Even if I know you’re anxious to go You want to go Why do you want to leave so fast Is there someone waiting for you All I ever wanted Say you really love me Oh I’m a fool My little heart is broken Scattered on the floor I need you here with me I need you here with me Confession is what I need from you It’s no exception I’m not accepting your apologies Oh please

Big Sur 03:15
On an old postcard Is where we belong In this scenic drive Of big sur Bide our time Slowly See the sights Only You and I walking Hand in hand Can we stop for now Or slow down By your side I’m not going anywhere How ‘bout a little hike Sounds of the sea Moved Kerouac Oh so much Crash and roar Rock to shore Whistling wind Warms my soul Soft voice In sunlight
3.
On and on In the back of my mind I recall he came into sight And you can hardly see it but it is there It’s a little place called B-612 Lonely And it seems everything has changed So he honestly begged to disagree We are the same Through a million stars Only hearts can see Feel the way he feels Then you know On and on He kept worrying about This one rose he left behind And you can hardly see it but it is there From a little place called B-612 Alone
4.
Smile we’re looking at you Smile we are waiting Try for a little bit Smile like you mean it We haven’t got all day And this is due tomorrow I understand your shyness But you’re sitting in the middle for a reason For something you did well And to be proud of So smile we’re looking at you Smile we are waiting Try for a little bit Smile like you mean it So smile this is for you Smile we will wait Try try try you won’t regret it Smile You are wonderful Smile Smile It’s for you

NEW ADVENTURES IN POP 033

Growing up in California is key for MARINE LIFE, as is the influence of Des de Leon Nicolas’s grandfather, who was a Big Band composer and band leader. From GARY LEWIS AND THE PLAYBOYS to Astrud Gilberto, from AZTEC CAMERA to THE SUNDAYS, Des channels her inspirations, influences, and experiences into her ever-improving song-writing, which began when she was just 10 years old.

It is around the end of 2012 when, after embarking on a musical adventure called JULIE PLUG, and brought together by their fascination with the ocean, Des decided to start MARINE LIFE with her friends from San Francisco. And this, their first 7” single, is their record label debut and a great discovery for us.

Her colorful pop takes influences from the sixties sounds, from sunshine pop, from indie-pop, from synth-pop, and from northern soul, and turns it into one of those things that makes you happy to get out of bed in the morning, no matter what day of the week it is. Can anyone resist the trumpets on “Fool Of A Kind”, a pop hit with a chorus you can’t help but sing along with, not too rubbery, but full of personality? Won’t fans of ALPACA SPORTS just go crazy over the sunniness and agility of the song “Big Sur”? Who can resist the magnetism and beauty of “Boy From B-612”, with its spacy synthesizers? What other group in the world would save the best for last, and put the marvelous “For The Camera Shy” – a prodigious northern soul piece with echoes of the BOO RADLEYS – at the end of the single?

There are more than enough reasons to follow a group who, with only four songs, have been able to make us fall in love with them and develop a timeless pop with its own personality that is tremendously addictive. Are they shoe-gaze? Are they sunshine? Are they northern soul? They are MARINE LIFE.
