It does not come as a surprise that Marcella Puppini should have gathered around her, from all over the world, several different collaborators for her solo debut; all very different from one another, some slightly bonkers; some well known, some unknown, indie, irriverent and unexpected. Everything is Beautiful, a project she descrbes as 'Electronic Vintage, with an intoxicating blend of Swing House, Electronic Motown-Pop, Fellini-esque waltz-hop and soaring ballads.'
Jean-Max Riviere, icon of Existentialist France and collaborator Brigitte Bardot and Juliette Greco is the author of the French text of Boom Boom l'Helicoptere. Marco Pirroni, guitarist and co-writer for Adam and The Ants, plays guitar on I Know You Lie; French DJ and producer duo Bart&Baker, pioneers of ElectroSwing, co-wrote and produced Stop Googling Me; the celebrated American rapper R.A. The Rugged Man, co-wrote and performer on The Greatest in collaboration with US producer Mr Green; and finally singer-songwriter, composer, producer, DJ and artist Stephen Coates from The Real Tuesday Weld, otherwise known as The Clerkenwell Kid, collaborate on So High as co-author and producer.
Marcella Puppini has always been, throughout her career, quite difficult to pigeonhole: a pioneer of Burlesque when it was still underground and subversive, an essential figurehead of the Vintage scene, a known face both on the indie scene and the BBC. And even now, defining her musically is quite a tricky pro position. Written and co-produced by Marcella, 'Everything Is Beautiful' reflects her International spirit, and a desire to experiment without any strategic or commercial planning and without taking herself too seriously.
