We say newcomer because “Fire” is only her second single, but Marz has been writing and producing her own songs since she was 14 years old - which probably goes a long way to explaining the sense of depth and control found on this latest cut.

Built around crunching, hollow synths and Marz’ calm seductive vocals; “Fire” is a lesson in understatement. There is a slow burning intensity to its beautiful, cautious swells and a wonderfully raw nature that draws power from lyrics like “You speak words of I love you / But you f-ck like you hate me.” Produced by High x Land, and co-produced by the artist herself, “Fire” is only further proof that Marz is an incredibly rare breed: fiercely individual and quietly commanding.

Marz Leon’s 7 track EP is due out later this summer.
