Future RnB singer songwriter Marc E. Bassy is proud to announce the upcoming release of his forthcoming EP, Only The Poet for July 29th and is releasing his first single "Cigarettes" premiering at SPIN. Produced by Casper and B, the soulful track showcases an ambient trap-laden aesthetic, featuring Marc's heartfelt rhymes and singing.
Ditching your typical synth bassline for sustained triads played by a bevy of low-brass instruments underneath Marc's singing and rapping, the song fosters a rich, ethereal multi-layered sonic landscape that sounds warm and slow-motion at the same time. Marc creates a personal narrative detailing his previous relationships and the love for the music he creates as well as the emotional strain it also brings.
"Cigarettes is a song about the choice you have to make as an artist when dealing with romance. It's very personal to me I talk about previous lost love and how it is parallel to current love. "Cigarettes" is also about the way that when you truly love something like music there's always medicine to fill the void that comes with being a person. Music is there for me like cigarettes," Marc states.
