Marc E. Bassy Drops “Postmodern Depression”

Bay-area pop/R&B powerhouse Marc E. Bassy returns today with his new five-song EP, Postmodern Depression, which features lead single “Love Her Too” with fellow Bay-area rapper G-Eazy.

Of the song, Bassy says “‘Love Her Too’ was that end of the session jam that turned into a real song—it was me waking the guys up and convincing them this last jam of the day was something special.” He continues, “Postmodern Depression is me battling with culture. It’s about trying to grow up in a scene that glorifies the opposite of what it is to be a wholesome individual. It’s about me always coming back to music and being forever saved by songwriting.”

Bay Area singer-songwriter Marc E. Bassy has released his debut album, Gossip Columns, via Republic Records today. Listen HERE.

Earlier this summer Bassy launched the first single and remix from his new body of work with “Plot Twist” f/ KYLE and “Plot Twist (Remix f/ Hailee Steinfeld),” which have garnered a combined 16M+ Spotify streams. “So Simple” f/ G-EAZY has already racked up over 1M+ Spotify streams in merely a couple weeks.

While Bassy has been a much buzzed-about singer/songwriter since the release of 2016’s Groovy People EP, Gossip Columns further showcases Bassy’s recognizable crooning, amplifies his song-crafting capabilities and takes the listener on a themed-journey into his personal world. “I chose this album title because these tracks are essentially sensationalized stories from my personal life, experience and observation,” says Bassy. “I have always dug into these stories as sources for inspiration, and being based in the muck and mire of Los Angeles, a tabloid-ish picture is what I have painted within this album.” Catch Bassy reveal more about the songs on Gossip Coumns and air some of the new tracks this weekend on Beats 1’s Noisey Radio (Saturday at 9amEST/6amPST & Sunday 9pmEST/6pmPST).
