Marina Massanova Releases New Single, Dank’o’holic

Ukrainian genre-fluid punk rap queen MARINA MASSANOVA‘s heavy-hitter, ‘Dank’o’holic’, is the perfect anthem for anybody who likes a good drink. Touching on subjects like partying and alcoholism, the single is inspired by alcohol addiction.

She wrote the song after her friend said she should stop writing songs about love. Being a bit of a boozer she instead suggested she wrote some music about being passed out on the floor drunk out of her mind. The song is the perfect recollection of a drunk woman having a great time. She took all the best memories of partying and brought in rapper Chris Jenkins to write the song together. The infectious beat perfectly captures the vibe of the track, giving the feel of a drunk person trying to play guitar over loose, heavy-hitting rhythms.

Marina is currently working on her first full-length album which will showcase her new found punk rap style.

Watch the video for ‘Dank’o’holic’. The production was all taken in one intimate shot, baring Marina’s soul as she goes wild in the music studio.
