We first came across Marie Fjeldsted and her project Penny Police in a dark, murky venue in Hamburg at the Reeperbahn festival. When Karousel's Chris found himself getting all teary in the first chorus of 'I do Care', we knew we'd found something special; and when Marie and her producer Kaspar came to London to do our packed Soho show, and a rammed Wood Green in Karamel, it was pure joy watching people's reaction to her.
Initially it's impossible to believe English isn't her native tongue; but maybe it's that distance that allows her to drop lines in that say so much, so simply. Her voice, like her lyrics, are full of a genuinely warm humanity that it's impossible not to fall in love with:
No eye for an eye
go turn the other cheek
Oh, that I could make you see
we sure need to see
but I do
I do care
For both of us
Sink Or Sail EP was released in 2013 and we're delighted to be publishing it for Marie.
