Marie B’ & The Raccoon Releases Debut EP
If you’re even just a bit like me and you’re all about indie bands, you will LOVE this French band I’m about to introduce you to!
I met Marie B’ (lead singer and guitarist) and the Raccoon (lead guitarist/bassist) when I was in college. I had no idea back then of the musical love at first sight that I was about to witness. Marie B’ and the Raccoon both shared the same love for hard rock/metal/punk music. However, when they started making music together, they went for a different road: indie pop/rock, a crossroad between the XX and Charlie Winston if you will, and that’s when I got intrigued. I followed their journey when they started posting covers on their youtube channel and quickly fell in love with Marie’s raspy voice and the Raccoon’s guitar skills.
So needless to say, I was more than excited when the pair announced they would release an EP. I was ready to love it, but now that it’s out, saying I loved it would be an understatement.
The 7-track EP, titled “Dusk to Dawn”, deals with daily youth struggles, such as feeling depressed or being heartbroken. The duo poured their souls into the EP and hopefully, their words will resonate with you like they did with me.
