Marlene: Stay Awake

'Let me stay awake forever'. Sometimes I think that if sleep was not an option, I would want to stay awake forever, just like newcomer Swedish sensation Marlene croons in her latest single, Awake Forever. A cascading pop song against vibrant beats and lyrics that reel you in? Perfect combination if you ask me.

Marlene - Stay Awake


To be completely honest, I have no idea who Marlene is but I randomly came across this song over the weekend and immediately, I knew I had to add it to my favourites and share it with you all.

Okay.. so I did a little research (aka Google) on Marlene after listening to this song all weekend, but to be honest, the only things worth mentioning are that she’s a pop singer from Sweden and her latest hit, ‘Stay Awake’, was deemed a “must hear pop song” by MTV Buzzworthy.

And I can’t help but agree.

The smooth, sensitive clarity of Marlene’s voice speaks of being awoken by a new love over the dreamy uplifting elation and intoxication of the track’s moody electronic and R&B production.

“Wake me from an endless night, tell me that the wait is over.”

Jag älskar! 😉
