Melding the farthest edges of psychedelia, the ghost beat of Krautrock and subtle ambient touches with raw indie spirit, Richmond, Virginia’s Marionette crafts a truly unique experience that leaves the listener hungry for more. Their sinewy songwriting is remarkably difficult to classify thanks to the group's conscious avoidance of standard rock idioms and it is clear that Marionette is a valuable gem in the underground music scene.
Setting out across the east coast to bring their heartfelt live show to new audiences, Marionette has shared the stage with a decorated list of artists including The National, Tortoise, tUnE-yArDs, The Whigs, Miniature Tigers, Handsome Furs and Hotel Lights. Ever focused on pushing themselves to create and expand past their already genre defying brand of art meets music, the four piece delved deep and entered the studio in May 2011 to record a follow up to their already well received “Facing You.” The soon-to-be completed recordings promise to be a tangle of influences: Personal surrealism, courtesy of Sparklehorse. The multifaceted melodies of Brian Wilson. Disembodied keyboard freak-outs, via early Pink Floyd. Reverent psych redux via the 21st century, similar to Broadcast. Taut ensemble construction that brings to mind the band Magazine. And a breadth and depth somehow redolent of the incomparable Can. It is clear after witnessing the band’s emotional performances, Marionette is comfortable and at home on stage. Larger-than-life video collages made of ephemeral films are projected on the band as the room imperceptibly fills with haze and their insidious rhythms and intertwining melodies seamlessly coalesce into the soundtrack for a fever dream, haunting your brain long after awakening.

As the bold subtlety of their performance mesmerizes the listener and the projections establish innumerable secondary plots, that is the moment when the lights start to move. Forfeiting all but hard work and a love for the music they create, it is clear that what truly separates Marionette from their contemporaries is not flashy pictures or clandestine article, but the ability to ignite and addict a listener with a single chord.
