CASSIE MARIN: NEW RELEASE BUSY BODY
Last Friday, Los Angeles based Cassie Marin released her newest song “Busy Body.” As a vocalist, producer and multi-instrumentalist, it is to no surprise that Cassie delivers us with another hit release. There’s something about each song of hers that gives us nostalgia to our 90’s/early 2000’s R&B days and some how bringing us a futuristic pop twist to it. She is described as one with avant-garde luminary in the left-of-center pop space and we have to say this hits the nail on the head. With her cover alluding to the movie “The Cable Guy,” it’s the perfect example of taking something not only nostalgic and notably eccentric but putting her own twist on it that makes it perfectly her own. A true artistic vision and we love to see it. Below you can read about her inspirations on her newest release, “Busy Body.”
THE HONEY: WHAT IS THE STORY/MESSAGE WITH YOUR SONG “BUSY BODY”? WHAT WAS THE INSPIRATION?
CASSIE MARIN: “‘Busy Body’ is about the compulsive surveillance culture we find ourselves in one way or another through the world of social media. Naturally my inspiration comes from personal experience, but the style in which I approached it (and specifically approached the artwork) was inspired by the movie one of my favorite movies, ‘Cable Guy.’ ”
THE HONEY: WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LYRIC OF THE SONG? BREAK IT DOWN FOR US!
CASSIE MARIN: “‘Everybody got a face on and don’t mean it. I could be your friend if you could just believe it.’
At the end of the day we’re all people looking for connection and this line was inspired by a few experiences I’ve had meeting people for the first time and hearing that they felt “too intimidated” to reach out to me or approach me in person. I related to how they were feeling but also felt conflicted wondering how anyone could ever possibly feel that way about ME. So, ultimately, that’s what that line is about. Anyone can be your friend if you feel a connection with them — that’s what makes us human.”
THE HONEY: ANYTHING ELSE YOU WANT TO SHARE ABOUT THIS SONG?
CASSIE MARIN: “With all the meaning there is in there, it’s also just a fun song. Sometimes tackling a sad subject with mockery is the most productive of all—it can help bring awareness without beating ourselves up. Don’t take life too seriously!”
