What started with her debut single “I Wanna Be Your Girlfriend” on SoundCloud, turned out to be the music many young teenagers can relate to. Even though the number of fans has grown in the past six years, her perspective on music stayed more or less the same: “I don’t think it has changed, other than that I’m scared that I’m not going to be able to write more songs because people expect new music.” Her approach stayed the same, but you can hear her emotional growth when you’re listening to her new lyrics. Explaining the transition between her first success and now, she says, “I’m not eighteen anymore. I’m twenty-two now, and I’m just more mature.”

With every song she writes, Marie tries to wear her heart on her sleeve, and she hopes to hang on to that rawness in her music for as long as possible: “Mostly, for making this album, I had to be present and couldn’t escape anything around me because I wanted to make the best thing possible.” While Marie admits that making music is fun, it can be hard work too. Especially, when you’re stuck and don’t know what to do.
