Free download of b-side : Walls :

Genna Marabese is a Bedfordshire based alternative singer songwriter conjuring up discordant underground pop sounds. Genna Marabese (vocals/ guitar/violin/piano/saxophone) creates impassioned music about love, death and desire.

Debut single “We Are Animal” (28th May 2012 ) has  dark undertones about battling with your inner demon ( your animal) with the lyrical sounds of darkness creeping into everyday life  “ into the air that you breathe and the food that you eat”. Prior to the official debut release Genna has had outstanding radio support already from 6 musics Tom Robinson, Amazing Radios The Other Woman, BBC 3 Counties radio Introducing show ( with a interview confirmed for 25th May)  and from Steve Lamacq on BBC Radio 2 for her previous band Sister Ray.

The “We Are Animal” music video ( filmed, edited & directed by M.K.Ceesay a short film maker/ music video director based in Shoreditch) was shot in a empty uninhabitable cottage in a rural village in Bedforshire. The character in the story sees and hears their inner “animal” and consequently on the brink of insanity tries to rid of it through its own burial or drowning which isn't so easy when its inside only you.

Genna’s distinct vocal depicts her from her fellow songstresses where she claims to sing sounding like a man, likes to play a live noisy show just like the boys and she is often compared to PJ Harvey, Souxie Soux and more recently Anna Calvi. An Italian national but raised in England, Genna spent her early life exposed to a wide range of music by her family where British music of the 60's and 70's was a huge part of family life influencing her sound and retro style. In her late teens she moved to London and during this time Genna along with her cousin Giuseppe played the London circuit as an acoustic act under the name Sister Ray. She went on to explore many different directions with her music in various live band line-ups, recording a vast amount of material until now where she has taken to the stage as Genna Marabese. 

Coming soon a follow up single and debut album early 2013.
