Break You - Marion Raven EP Review
This mini-album is really a teaser for the album Set Me Free, released May 7th (already a big hit in Japan), and this Norwegian singer is described as having a dark edge Avirl Lavigne can only dream of.
Im not sure I can agree with that; Miss Marion sounds exactly like Lavigne before she went all horrible (Girlfriend, anyone?)
But this Mini-album is brilliant. A definite reason to buy the album, Breaking You is a catchy, angry song about a break up. Obviously this is a clichd idea, but Marion carries it off, using a pop rock theme to show off her talents, making (after a few listens) it easy to sing along to.
Next song is Falling away, another danceable song (pop rock again- I notice a theme). A great, catchy song (another theme) that somehow lifts anyones spirits, despite the fact Im pretty sure its meant to be a depressing topic.
The final track is Here I am, a angsty song, following the theme of great and catchy, and doing it well.
This mini album is a great reason for anyone who was into Avril Lavigne, or is into the pop-rock scene.
