Etta Marcus – “Hide & Seek” single
“The idea behind ‘Hide & Seek’ came from a weird fear I had when I was younger, which was not being found or being forgotten about when hiding in a game of hide-and-seek. I was such a good hider that it did happen a few times. I wanted to play around with that idea and ended up writing from the perspective of the seeker, who just won’t give up trying to find the one person left hiding. It became dark and obsessive pretty fast after realizing how creepy it sounded. There are lines that sound quite romantic, ‘every time you lay your blonde hair, I’ll be right next to you,’ and it’s immediately ruined in the next line, ‘whether you want me.’ I loved how playful and sinister it was.” – Etta Marcus explained
‘Hide & Seek’ is a reflective offering born from the nostalgia of Etta’s childhood fear. The likable tune contains a relatable narrative, ear-pleasing vocals, and harmonious melodies. Also, “Hide & Seek” possesses guitar-laden instrumentation flavored with an atmospheric indie-pop vibration. Furthermore, “Hide & Seek” serves as a fantastic introduction to what listeners can expect to hear on Etta Marcus’s debut EP, entitled, “View from the Bridge,” set to be released on December 3, 2021.
