Los Angeles-based alternative soul rocker Joe Marson has made waves with the release of his latest tracks, “No Retreat” and the politically-fueled, “Explore/Explode,” leaving fans anticipating the release of his sophomore EP, Electric Soul Magic Vol. II, on April 14, 2017. Packing a sound that is cinematic in quality, infused with blues, rock and grunge that pairs perfectly with the songwriter’s soaring vocals, the EP delivers six tracks that showcase Marson’s influences and musical diversity. Today, Marson showcases that diversity by unveiling a new track from the album, “My Love is a Cannibal,” with an exclusive music video premiere at AXS.com. “My Love is a Cannibal” pays homage to Marson’s love of dark 90’s grunge-era music videos, partnering with his friend, Nadia Itani, to develop the concept and film it in an old elevator in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. On the song, Joe Marson states:
“Sometime’s I feel that love and lust can be be like a hunger, like emotional vampirism. It can be selfish and cruel and leave one person full and the other empty, as if one has eaten the other’s heart. Hence, ‘My Love is a Cannibal.’ The lyrics are dark and reminiscent of a lot of the grunge influences that I hold so dear to me.” – Joe Marson
