Marius Samuelson is a 17 year old singer-songwriter from Stavanger. Norway. Marius has just released the track, “Alien In Disguise”. Marius Samuelsen is not, as yet, the finished package; at seventeen years old how could he be? However with the evidence of this single now before us, it is patently apparent that he will become the whole package.
Here he has written a superlatively good song; he plays piano very well and has a clean look about him. With the amount of music created every day in the society we live in, you would expect to find more masterfully pieced together music like this. Marius Samuelson’s song stands so far above the norm. His music is soothing, energetic, and full of emotion; the kind of emotion that abandoned music back in the early to late 60s.
If you are looking for a euphoric, feel-good escape, then “Alien In Disguise” is for you. The song offers up a new sonic adventure of piano, voice and a soaring melody. There is usually a time and a place for each type of music, but this track can be played in almost any setting because it appeals to a wide audience. This is one of the few songs that you can listen to without getting tired of it. Time and time again you will find yourself tapping your foot and bobbing your head to the simple rhythm and sway of this song.
The works of some of the really great artists out there don’t fall under mainstream music so one must spend a lot of time searching for them or exploring somebody else’s suggestions or artist choices. Stumbling over “Alien In Disguise” will be an exhilarating experience for any listener looking to discover pure, honest music without the fluff gadgetry.
Marius Samuelson falls into that great new mold of modern-day, singer-songwriters like Hozier, Vance Joy, George Ezra and James Bay. Still at the very beginning of his career one can but wonder what treasures are yet to come!
