Marriages: Skin

Skin is the new track taken from the forthcoming Marriages debut full-length album Salome. The new LP is available everywhere April 7th, 2015 via Sargent House.

The Los Angeles-based trio first began in 2011 as a collaborative effort between former Red Sparowes members Emma Ruth Rundle (guitar, vocals) and Greg Burns (bass, keyboards). Showcasing Rundle’s exceptional playing more vividly than the dense architecture of the Sparowes could allow, Marriages’ departure from purely instrumental rock, too, helped bring her to the forefront, revealing a voice equally fragile and ferocious. Enlisting Sparowes drummer Dave Clifford, they recorded Kitsune, released on Sargent House in 2012. Subsequent touring with Russian Circles, Deafheaven and others honed their vision while introducing the band to a broad cross-section of heavy music fans. Full time drummer Andrew Clinco (Drab Majesty) completed the equation in late 2012, the final component in Marriages’ frequently epic postpunk-by-way-of-stoner-rock sound.

Upon listening to Salome, it’s impossible not to be drawn-in by the howling guitars. It’s abruptly dark, and somewhat enforces and signifies the buzz of 2012 debut EP.
