Bending Grid will be releasing MARIONETTES on Friday February 3rd, 2023
Featuring vocals from Alexis Dimitriou of “Lost in Wonderland” and backing vocals from Nick Jones, this song is sure to please the ears. The message of the song represents the control and provocation received from a narcissistic partner.
The single is packaged in 3 different versions with each genre being personified as a different marionette.
This version is all about mimicking the styles made popular in the original 80s boom period as closely as possible. Similar sounds can be heard from artists Freeweights and Forêt De Vin.
This version draws inspiration from 1980s films, video games, and cartoons. Synthwave has been used in the highly popular soundtracks of films such as Drive, Tron: Legacy, and the Netflix series Stranger Things. Think “Blinding Lights” by The Weeknd and songs by Dua Lipa.
This version is characterized by minor key tonality, dark, bleak, and with undertones of sorrow. Bending Grid collaborated with Synth Lovers Cafe to produce this darker side of the Marionettes single.
