We are sad to announce that Marine babe Ruby has decided to leave the sea to pursue her other dreams. You can follow her new adventures on !

A new chapter to the storybook... One that we were not expecting but one that is becoming exciting with new pedals, sounds and experimentation.

We love making our music so we have decided to continue! We are looking forward to seeing you all and finally touring our Debut Album. Lots of love Marine. X x

“Fable Electric is an album quite unlike anything you’ve heard this year.”

21 April 2018 (Sat 11am)


04 April 2018 (Wed 2pm)


Here's a little chat we had with Stereoboard, if you want some further insight into Fable Electric, give it a read ;)

02 April 2018 (Mon 1pm)


"Fable Electric is very much a rock record with deft touches, not an indie record (whatever that could possibly mean today) with rock flourishes. Songs like "Sirens" and "Kraken" start off slow and sultry, the better to draw you onto those unforgiving cliffs when the waves of bass and cymbals crash. The earth itself is a constant source of wonder here, as powerful as any mythical beast; often the two are inseparable."

Thanks for listening and writing about our debut Matthew at DrunkenWerewolf.

30 March 2018 (Fri 12pm)


WOW! Thank you for coming and helping us have a blast at Rough Trade East on Wednesday... the audience/band synergy was magical. A huge part in our live sound is played by our audio guru Moshik Kop, THANK YOU!

Here's a little clip of our next single, Big Dog, filmed by Dror Shohet

Our next gig is next Friday: Life Models, Marine, Hotel at Aces & Eights

Massive love, thank you all.

Marine x

28 March 2018 (Wed 12pm)


TONIGHT we're playing some songs from Fable Electric, LIVE! We're on at the oh-so-reasonable-time of 19:30 :) | Rough Trade Recommends: Olden Yolk, Meggie Brown & Marine |

We cannot wait to share it with you!!!
Love, Marine! xxx

17 March 2018 (Sat 12pm)


"The quartet’s off-kilter rock is even more immersive in the flesh – a bewitching and visceral noise that’s part Warpaint, part Wild Beasts, part PJ Harvey. Theatrical vocals, chiming guitars and an intricate backdrop of bass and beat interlock on songs from their forthcoming debut album ‘Fable Electric’, which makes for a spellbinding stint." Thanks HIDDEN HERD :)

16 March 2018 (Fri 12pm)


ONE WEEK! You can get your hands on one of these from next Friday!

23 December 2017 (Sat 10am)


"London quartet, Marine just released a new single entitled, Mount Olympus and after one pass, I’m hooked. Hypnotic and pulsive, the drumming and other deeply-rooted rhythm tracks make Mount Olympus’ groove, infectious and worthy of removing your hands from your keyboard/phone/steering wheel for one of those, devoted listens." :D Thank you For The Love Of Bands

When we started we based our writing conceptually to trace the supposed 'seven roots of all stories', our growing fascination with fables, myths and legends has shaped our 2 albums worth of songs so far! Our love affair with storybooks and our growing reluctance to join this digital era have led us back to book shelves where we will be performing through October.

Performing stripped back gigs, and giving lyric readings surrounded by stories in Libraries, Comic Shops, Bookshops and even Narrowboats..

Lileth, meet the merpeeps, merpeeps, meet Lilleth. This incarnation of Lileth was sculpted by the artist Octoplum and I am in love with her (the artist and Lilleth)! She is the inspiration for a new song.. "In Jewish folklore, from the satirical book Alphabet of Ben Sira (ca 700–1000 CE) onwards, Lilith appears as Adam's first wife, who was created at the same time (Rosh Hashanah) and from the same dirt as Adam – compare Genesis 1:27. (This contrasts with Eve, who was created from one of Adam's ribs: Genesis 2:22)" wiki wiki wah - love Rubes x

myths are half truths, legends are truths.

a myth can be a legend, but a legend is not necessarily a myth.

a myth can be a folktale, but a folktale is not necessarily a myth.

marine songs are a mix of all of this and none of it at the same time.
