Marika Hackman shares Rosa from Let’s Eat Grandma’s rework of ‘blow’

Today two of the strongest UK female voices, Marika Hackman and Rosa Walton (from Let’s Eat Grandma), come together for a reimagining of Marika’s bona fide pop banger ‘blow’. Listen here.

The re-working completely reinterprets the original, presenting it in a sophisti-pop setting with elegantly chopped vocals and sparse arrangements, leaving space for the dual vocals to shine.

Rosa says of the track: "I wanted to do something different with the track and use some of Marika’s vocals to bounce off and create a new narrative. Marika’s voice ended up as a friend who tries to help when you’re going through a hard time and you’re stuck inside your own head. I liked the idea of singing a duet with someone who isn’t initially aware that you’re singing it with them!"

Marika says: "We originally spoke about a remix, but Rosa irreverently grabbed my hooks and fashioned them into a whole new song which I’m totally in love with."

Following sold out headline UK and US tours at the end of 2019, Marika is currently on her largest ever UK tour, including a closing date at London’s O2 Forum. See all tour dates below, and get tickets here.
