Track: marigolden unveils powerful track and video for ‘Just Like Smoke’, celebrating individualism and empowerment



The sultry, jazzy/soul style of marigolden (Mel O’Neill) is quite unique: with lyrics that half rap and glide with melody and an instrumentation that defies easy labelling. Her new track ‘Just Like Smoke’ is a powerful anthem for personal liberation and ridding ourselves of others’ expectations. marigolden’s voice is golden liquid and her defiance is quiet but determined – the lyrics an erudite exposition of sexism, hypocrisy and inequality with hope for ultimate empowerment.

The video beautifully captures this: the shots of languid everyday actions interspersed with scenes of women of all generations happily squeezed on a couch and a chair burning – capturing the essence of the lines: I’m not working for a seat, I’m building my own table. It is delightful and embracing music:
