Continuing with her naming trend, Bat For Lashes has released another song from her upcoming album The Haunted Man. Predictably, I like it less that the last one, but I bet there’s a lot of “Marilyns” out there who are digging it.
Despite the fact that it is NOT named after me, it’s still a terrific song. The vocals, as usual, are drop dead gorgeous and they build and release tension throughout the track.
And yes, the title is a reference to the most famous Marilyn – Monroe:
Holding you, I’m touching a star
Turn it into Marilyn, waiting out every big car

Listen for: the way the vocals are able to convey power without relying on volume in the chorus at 1:10.
