If you actually want to stand out in our eyes, do not play by the rules and simply learn to change the boundaries that are in place. Continuing our exciting journey we have to make a stop by Physical Presents for “Move On” from the talented Marcus James. Based out of Vancouver, Marcus James is determined to experimenting on uncharted paths to create a new sound to add to his repertoire. Currently, he has been fusing both pop-punk and house genres to create what he calls “emo house” that is both nostalgic and radio-friendly. Due to this sound, James has been cultivating a following since last year, creating not only millions of streams but the fanbase grows exponentially week by week.
“I’m always trying to create a more cohesive world around my music. One of the ways I’ve been doing that is sampling pieces from older tracks of mine and sneaking them into my new songs. Some of the chopped up vocals you hear are actually made from another song of mine in which the singer happened to use the words’ Move On.’ They were sung with a totally different timbre, so I had to change the rhythm and pitch to draw it together in an engaging way.” – Marcus James
It has been far too long since we have dove into Marcus James signature “emo-house” pool and we are glad to be gifted another chance. Since the taboo surrounding mental health and disorders is finally starting to fade away, more and more often artists are using their music to talk about their anxieties in the best way they know how. Marcus James uses “Move On” to explore the depths of anxieties, loneliness, and depression and the impact on anyone’s psyche who suffers from them on a daily. These feelings are all too familiar, but this just adds to the track’s significance and just how much of an impact it will have. Now is the perfect time for “Move On” to be brought to long and is a must-hear for anyone who has ever struggled with their mental health.
Make sure you check out “Move On” on Spotify below and on SoundCloud!
