Girl as Wave
New York artist Marci Elizabeth has been making some mystic, cinematic & haunting songs under the moniker Girl As Wave. Working with LA producer Jimmy Deer to weave together the evocative sound streams & texture seams of the forthcoming Poison Vines and Nectar release; Marci proudly presents the world premiere of the grandiose Girl As Wave single “Houdini” that performs audio acts of majestic guitar strung magic in what sounds like an anthem set for the silver screens & gilded venue stages. Following on the heels of lauded singles like “Speed of Light” & “Polaroid“—Elizabeth exhibits a vast range of stylistic choices that span from energetic radio ready singles to entertaining the ineffable ether of elusive inclinations that occur in the afterglow of new experiences & bonds.
“Houdini” is the sound of staring at the lane dividers along the long & winding highways that connect people, places, businesses & the logistics that connect formerly lonely hearts to one another. Girl As Wave brings about the sentiments of apprehension, the fears that linger in the back of the mind to the conversations between heart & consciousness when one takes the plunge off the deep dive into the deep end of a new love. Marci’s melodic sung whispers whisk forward like expressed items of introspection that takes the listener along board for a joyride to new places to meet new faces while processing the conscious streaming thoughts that are sung aloud to the car radio dash. Like the elusive character of the song’s namesake, “Houdini” immerses the listener in an atmospheric Americana gothic tale where hearts & emotions are propelled forward to new horizons despite any perceived pangs of instinctive reluctance. Blind leaps of faith & late night drives encompass the entirety of the song’s adventurous spirit that rocks & rolls like an out of time classic from Chris Isaak, to the midnight moods of Mazzy Star. Girl As Wave’s Marci Elizabeth introduced the new single with the following succinct thoughts:
“Houdini” is about embracing risk and vulnerability versus escaping it when you’re in a new relationship.
