After the release of his debut EP, “Wanderer By Trade”, and the single track “Annabelle + Someone”, Toronto-based songwriter, composer and producer Marlon Chaplin has just released his brand new single, “Fossils”.
Marlon’s voice suddenly catches you with its fullness and captivating warmth. He sings some rich, melancholic yet embracing melodies over a gentle strummed guitar. It may recall some of the recent works of ROME. But the air gets less oppressive here. It is actually reassuring, like that distant ray of sun gazing through the clouds after dense rain.
Fossils gets along quite nicely, generating a good sing-along moment with the chorus as well. A pleasant tune for 5 minutes of chilling out.
“I’ve got one hand in my pocket,
While the other’s roaming free,
I’m not here to preach or knock it,
It’s just always worked for me,”
