The beautiful London babe Kara Marni is making waves in the music world with her luxe blend of soulful pop. Her new track, ‘Opposite’, is taken from her upcoming second EP. With mesmerising melodies and timeless vocals, the track blends R&B and soul influences, creating a stunning sound that sets her apart from the London music scene. ‘Opposite’ beams with classic, plush production, and her rich, powerful, timeless R&B is cementing her as one-to-watch this summer.
“I wrote this one in frustration about one of my best friends who no matter what I told her and how badly this guy treated her she just kept going back to him. I really wanted the video to capture what the songs about – that she kept doing the Opposite of what I was saying.”

Releasing her debut EP, Love Just Ain’t Enough, last summer, which Noisey quoted as one of their most ‘underrated projects of the year’ and Vogue tipped as a One to Watch for 2019, Kara Marni is set for another beautiful release this autumn. A whirlwind year so far has seen Kara step into the BBC 1xtra Live Lounge for her explosive debut, clock up over 20 million streams across all platforms, supporting No.1 breakthrough act Lewis Capaldi at his sold-out Great Escape show at the Brighton Dome, a slot with Mabel at Liverpool Sound City, a BBC Radio 1 introducing Track of the Week, and a headlining slot at the Pussy Parlure stage at Glastonbury. Yet for the 22-year-old, it is only just beginning.
Kara’s music is tinged with vocal inflections of vintage soul and pop, drawing inspiration from the likes of Roberta Flack, Amy Winehouse, Sade, and Lauryn Hill. British R&B is slowly but surely resurfacing as one of our standout genres, and Kara Marni is a clear example of the scene’s resurgence. We couldn’t be more excited.
