Whether producing, composing or dropping an unexpected Spice Girls cover, Marie Dahlstrom never disappoints. After mesmerizing us earlier this year with "Crashing Down," she's back with a laid-back jam called "One More Reason."
For this latest track, she gets a production assist from singer/songwriter/musician Tom Misch, a perfect fit as the two clearly have the same tireless work ethic. Like Marie, Tom seems to have plenty of musical genius to spare, often working with talented friends like Jordan Rakei, Carmody and Alfa Mist. Here, he creates a groovy cocktail of electric soul with subtle notes of funk and a bluesy guitar chaser (played by his own hands). Marie's syrupy vocals coat the track with warm sweetness infused with '90s R&B flavor for just the right amount of spice. About the song, Marie had this to say:
'One More Reason' is a love song about why two people are just right for each other. It's simple and straight to the point and hopefully can put a smile on people's faces. Producer Tom Misch and I wanted to create a nice beat with good chords and some guitar, and this is what came out of it....I am looking forward to doing some more work more with Tom in the future.
We'll be right here waiting for new music from the duo, but in the meantime, make sure you catch up on Marie's solo efforts or her Hans Island project with Mawhs. As for Tom, you can pre-order his forthcoming Reverie EP via iTunes, get familiar with his current catalogue via Bandcamp and catch him live on tour this summer.
