Mari Dangerfield is an alternative pop artist and composer. She presents a new face to pop with her distinctive and quirky vintage instrument setup including the Dubreq Stylophone and ‘Pianomate’ and use of both elements of singer-songwriter and musical theatre writing to inspire her.
Her debut single ‘Virtually’ innovated with ‘multi-tracking’ of the stylophone. It’s a sound she discovered through David Bowie-an artist she has worshipped since her early teens-when using a pocket electronic synth for a music video competition run by Yann Tiersen, which she won in January 2017.
Back with a string of new releases for 2019, her latest single, ‘Hardwired,’ continues to expand on her fusion of the lyrical content of alternative pop, the drama of musical theatre and the quirkiness of her vintage instruments into a powerful monologue of how over thinking and a negative mindset can get to us in the worst way if we let it.
