Good To You Again (free) 04:25
Don’t worry baby for life will be Good to you again Soon And waves will wash away your tears And waves will bring another love So you can dream Dream on and on again They’ll keep saying You’re good for nothing They’ll keep lying It turns them on to make it bad But hold on Don’t worry baby For waves will wash away your tears And waves will bring another love So you can dream Dream on and on again

Marie Merlet was born and raised in Bordeaux, where she maintained a close, continuous relationship with music while she was a film student, playing in various bands and Djing weekly on the local radio station Nova Sauvagine. Everything changed the day she met Laetitia Sadier. At the time, Mariewas involved in a thousand projects: a girl-group doing covers from the sixties, a WASHINGTON DC-styled punk combo, and a few experimental electronic ventures. But when the then-singer of STEREOLAB asked her to join MONADE and they started recording and touring together, there was no turning back. Marie traded Bordeaux for London, where she continued her musical journey as part of electronic duo ZOOEY or with the sweet pop of LISBONNE. In 2013, Marie began recording songs on her own in her London home studio under the moniker IKOCHÉRIE, and the result is “Dreaming On”, the debut album by IKO CHÉRIE. An album mixed with SCHNEIDER TM in Berlin and mastered in Barcelona by Xavier Alarcón.

“Good To You Again” is pure, cosmic easy listening and it is the song chosen like presentation of "Dreaming On", released in a free download Digital Single. “Dreaming On” is a special album, for a lot of reasons. First, because of its unmistakable pop sensitivity, which argues intelligently between the sweet and the bitter. This first IKOCHÉRIE album is dedicated to dreaming and how it can be so cathartic and so illusory at the same time, making you travel to unknown worlds while also keeping your feet far from the ground. Second, because it is easy to see the musical culture and baggage of an artist who has already played with so many styles, and who puts almost all of them into play on an album that, of course, has so much of her French origins (Françoise Hardy, France Gall, LESPARISIENNESare unarguably influences here). But those sounds are updated with effervescent and nebulous ambiance, spacey lounge or Brazilian music, to name just a few. And third, because her vocal register could be compared to Claudine Longet, Hope Sandoval, Blossom Dearie or Kahimi Karie, with whom she definitely has a lot in common.

Pay attention to "Dreaming On" album. It is definitely one of those unique, special albums, full of magic and seduction.
