THE MARION CRANES invite you to an orgy of homo-erotic pop punk
smut-talking techno folk music. It’s music for folk like us.
These Melbourne based kiwis released their debut EP, SEXY MOTIVATION,
under their own record label and it is a genre-bender. “It’s about
bringing homosexuality into mainstream pop music” says member Glen
Prins. “Heterosexuality is such a dominant feature in today’s pop
music and we wanted to open a conversation about our own sexuality
with our music”. SEXY MOTIVATION tackles queer themes in a rare,
unique and slightly comedic way incorporating a range of musical
“We generally start with a really mundane idea (normal life stuff
for most people) then we try to establish a character or two in that
situation. Then we drink a couple of wines and it spirals from there.
Some of our lyrics might be uncomfortable to listen to but they’re
from the heart” says Dane Yule.
THE MARION CRANES do not expect it will take long to finish an album.
By sharing a house together in the city of Melbourne, Austrailia, the
long time friends are able to turn over songs fast.
The boys are busy translating SEXY MOTIVATION into a live stage
performance and creating some very sexy and hilarious music clips to
accompany the music. They are currently in pre-production for the
music video for SEXY MOTIVATION and it promises to be a riot.
These are sexy pop songs with some serious hooks.
Keep an eye out for their live shows, where you know those hooks are
going to get you hot.
