Speaking of the single, ZANGBA says: ” Once the carefree and flirtatious period is over, the guy quickly realises that his love interest is a much better ﬁt than his past girlfriends, making her the perfect wife material. The kale greens, which is pictured on the cover art, symbolises they’re a great fit.”

Newcomer MAREK KUBALA pours his inner musings into his debut EP ‘Awhile’, released on 10th August via 3BarFire Recordings.
Fusing the progressive electronics of French duo Air with the acoustic subtleties of Elliot Smith and Nick Drake, ‘Awhile’s warm, lo-fi tracks combine heartfelt lyricism with lush instrumentation. First from the EP is lead single ‘Tableturn’ which hails back to a relationship that wasn’t meant to be, enveloping the heartfelt lyricism with soaring strings and soft instrumentals.
Based in East London, the Huddersfield native began his musical journey playing the folk and acoustic nights around the North of England. During his studies in Liverpool, he was introduced to a vibrant house and techno scene. Integrating the two worlds, ‘Awhile’ combines the retro 60s/70s-influenced psychedelia of indie music with the droning hypnotism of electronica.
The budding artist is set to release more this year as the lead singer of a new electro-indie band, comprised of DJ/producers Jerry Bouthier and Andrea Gorgerino (Kitsune/Vivienne Westwood).
In his pursuit of new sounds, Marek can be described in contrasts: organic yet downbeat, nostalgic yet forward moving. With the release of his debut EP, the musician has demonstrated his ability to successfully create his own sonic dreamscape.
