After a separate personal & musical split in quick succession, Von Marlon’s alias was formed as a solo project after living abroad.
The name derives from a Mike Skinner lyric, whose music along with other underground alternative pioneers of the UK scene greatly inspired Von Marlon’s sound, which offers a mix of Hip-Hop, Ambient, & Dance inspired alternative pop songs.
‘Together Forever’, the latest single, is about the dreams and hopes one can have for a relationship, not only when dating someone but also with a greater sense of connection in general. It was created during the past year and evolved from the current global situation; the longing for when everyone can come back together again and the feeling of excitement that that moment will bring.
Garnering attention with the two singles ‘Searching’ and ‘Tripping’ on independent radio stations such as Absolute Radio and Amazing radio, Von Marlon was then featured in The Unsigned Guide’s June ’19 Spotlight, before signing a sync deal to Max Music Publishing.
From this, ‘Closer’ was synced on an episode of Queen Sugar, the US TV show broadcasted on Oprah Winfrey’s network OWN, whilst also being listed in Ditto’s ‘Chartbreaker’ Spotify playlist. The latest single, ‘Nordhafen’ was blogged in Found.fyi’s ‘Discovering: Best of 2019’ around the same time.
