Marble Raft is the vessel of Swedish friends Olle Söderström and Gabrielle Baker. Together they conjure alternative pop-sagas with an escapist approach, building scenes of sound using an abundance of devices and instruments. Among them buzzing string machines, chiming guitars, eerie mellotron and quite a few bells. Always with a foundation of pure melodic pop to be found underneath the hazy wall of sound. Marble Raft was crafted a few years ago out of the duos mutual love for the etheral and the naive. Instead of focusing on the external world they turn their gaze inwards, building stories of sound. The inspiration comes from oddities such as old maps, stories of exploration and exotic flowers. Musical inspiration comes from bands such as Alvvays, The Magnetic Fields, Cocteau Twins and Chairlift.Parallel with Marble Raft, Gabrielle is the lead singer and songwriter in Gothenburg-based shoegaze band IBEN and Olle has previously been member and songwriter of Stockholm-based pop bands Nanook Of The North and Pineforest Crunch.

Marble Rafts' debut album "Geography A" will be released in spring 2021.
