Georgia genre-bending artist, Marquita Brown, shines on the new single ‘Red Tape,’ following the success of her EP, ‘A Light Cataclysm’. The single showcases a sensual journey through Brown’s Rhythm and Blues tendencies.
Building around a swaying beat ‘Red Tape’ journeys through soaring guitar licks, hazy keys, and a grooving bass, creating a blues tinted soundscape. Marquita’s soulful vocals blend vintage blue-rock with modern R&B to great effect before the track introduces a layer of strings through it’s chorus.
Marquita’s lyrics offer a poignant commentary, using religious and conservative metaphors to address those who seek to impose conformity on others. She explores the tension between outward appearances and private desires, creating what she calls “Red Tape” to restrain free spirits.
Marquita Brown’s unique blend of sultry slow jams, soulful blues, and raw rock ‘n’ roll defines her signature sound, positioning her as a rising star with a multi-genre appeal.
