Keeskea - Forfeit

Keeskea - Forfeit
With a unique gift for making sense of what’s tangled, Marousopoulos unwinds sensitive emotions to their threadbare state with her vintage Harmony Alden H45 Stratotone and whisper-close vocals, couching them in gentle electronic production, but leaving more than enough space for reflection and reconnection.

Her debut single ‘You Did’ gained airplay with triple j including on Home & Hosed, also impressing the likes of Majestic Casual, The Wild Honey Pie (US) and triple j Unearthed, who featured it in their podcast, with the station’s Music Director Dave Ruby Howe confessing himself “floored by the piercing delicacy” of the track. Equally stunned by its idiosyncratic beauty, artist-centric indie label Hobbledehoy Record Co. welcomed Keeskea to their tight-knit family, which also includes Arrows, Deafcult, Sophie Hutchings, Bec Stevens and more.

Marousopoulos is joined live by classically trained violinist Olivia Bolin, who provides delicate accents in an intuitive, organic interpretation of Keeskea’s recorded work. Already building a revered reputation for these disarmingly unguarded performances, Keeskea has shared stages with Stella Donnelly, Jen Cloher, Jen Buxton, Pool Shop, Jess Locke, Jarrow, Seagull, Chakra Efendi, and performed at events Against The Grain Festival and Quiet Carriage Touring’s evening of art & poetry ‘Embraced In Thought’.

About this track...

A vulnerable reflection of a dark emotional state, 'Forfeit's tremendous, roaring sparsity is offset by Marousopoulos's heavenly vocal waft.

"I often thought about changing the lyrics. I feared it might be too heavy.
But if I [did], I might have cheated myself & anyone else who has been in that headspace. I don’t think it should be censored."
