MP3 At 3PM: Alexis Marceaux

The lush sounds of Alexis Marceaux‘s “Leila And The Orange Moon” start off quietly—finger-picked guitar and the slight hum of strings in the high register—but pretty soon the full band joins in, and the song become climactic. Marceaux, a trained alto singer, has a voice that recalls the best of many contemporary female singers, from Florence Welch to Dar Williams to Chan Marshall. “Leila And The Orange Moon” is off Marceaux’s self-released second album, Orange Moon.
