Morcheeba meets Lily Allen. Sexy-chic electro-Acoustic.

Biography

Marina's Daughter is the result of a collaboration between vocalist Kate Zenna and the composer/guitarist Jonathan Fessenden.
Working primarily out of Los Angeles, they bring their respective influences from Toronto and Florida to create a unique electro-pop sound that has tones of Goldfrapp, Portishead, Zero 7 and Morcheeba but also offers an extremely accessible edge that will undoubtedly catch fire quickly once their debut album 'Love Crash' is released in Summer 2008.
One of their singles, 'Sweet Takeover', is currently on the soundtrack of the recently released indie film 'Pornstar' starring Johann Urb.
The mesmerizingly soothing vocals of Kate Zenna accompanied by Jonathan Fessenden's beats has garnered many fans in the bands short time together. Marina's Daughter has played in Los Angeles with their full band (bass, drums, keyboard, guitar and backing beats) at El Cid, LA Women's Music Fest, Bordello and Genghis Cohen.

Lyrics

Jaded Girl

Written By: Kate Zenna and Jonathan Fessenden

JADED GIRL

I’m a jaded girl
Can’t fall for you
Please say it isn’t true
Too scared to tell it straight
Double negatives can wait

Truth is I think I like you
Surprise and deep delight
Love the krinkle in your eye

Been hijacked by surprised
In the calm and quiet of the night
Forgot how all this goes
Heart’s blank and wants some more
Desert smile I adore

I can’t figure it out
I can’t figure it out

I’m a fussy girl
Can’t give it breath
Not sure what I got left
Let’s quit while we’re ahead
Not need to mess the bed
Truth is I wanna like you
Surprise and deep delight
Love the krinkle in your eye

Who’s gonna catch my fall
I’m not the bravest of them all
Somethin’s feeling wrong
Can’t seem to shake it off
God knows I want to like you
Save me from this fight
Love the desert in your eye

I can’t figure it out
I can’t figure it out
I can’t figure it out
I can’t figure it out
I can’t figure it out

I can’t figure it out
I can’t figure you out
Do you ever shout
I can’t figure it out
I can’t figure you out
I can’t figure you out
I can’t figure it out
I can’t figure it out
Driving me mad
You’re driving me mad

I Stand Alone

Written By: Fessenden/Zenna

I STAND ALONE
By Fessenden/Zenna

It’s impossible
To forget you
It’s remarkable
To have met
It’s deplorable
They let you down
It’s despicable
It’s all over town

CHORUS
I stand alone here
Wanting to see it clear
Knowing that I disappeared
With you
REPEAT

I’m outside you now
It’s kind of cold
Banging my head
Still I want more
Driving me mad
You’re all I hear
Unclasp my hand
You devil so near

CHORUS

SHINE FOR ME

Written By: Zenna/Fessenden

Shine for me
Oh shine for me
I can feel the sunset
In your eyes

Wait for me
In the dark of night
I'm forever yours
If you hold me tight

Dance for me
Your love at me
I'm mesmerized
In your hands

Give to me
Your tears for me
I'm here
I'm yours
You see

Whisper in my ear
I'm where you want to be
Wrap yourself around
And we'll make three

All I know
When you are close
My feet don't dare
Touch ground

Destiny
Has kissed us sweet
I sway for you
You sway for me
