We were huge fans of Grand Rapids, Michigan songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Marley Ferguson's previous group PARTS, which released one stellar EP of swooning, poignant dream-pop via our friends at Winspear back in 2016. So we're just a bit elated to announce the debut EP from Marley's solo project FADE, coming this fall on our label Luminelle Recordings. FADE makes bright, starry synth-pop that is equal parts danceable and devastating, often at the same time, with an underlying intensity that both complements and belies the project's vibrant youthful aesthetic. The EP's dazzling lead single "Fall in Love", which Marley calls "an anthem for an era where young women are choosing to invest in themselves over romance," is a perfect introduction to her strength as a songwriter: catchy, empowering, and emotionally soaring pop catharsis that will have you dancing through the tears. Watch the song's resplendently dreamy video, directed by FADE + Jaimie Skriba, and shot in and around Grand Rapids with an all-women cast & crew, below. FADE's Fall in Love EP is out October 12th on Luminelle. Pre-order on blue vinyl or cassette here.

FADE has a handful of shows lined up with George Clanton + Rafting, including an EP release show at Elsewhere in Brooklyn on August 18th, with more to be added soon. Find all of her dates here.
