Penthouse & Maribelle – About You (Fortunes. Remix) | Music Video

Penthouse & Maribelle 05.07.2016ANDREW


Apparently Australian songwriter and singer, Maribelle, wrote an early version of “About You”, with LA production duo, Penthouse, several years ago. Maribelle then reworked it with Melbourne-based contemporary trap soul duo, Fortunes.


“About You” has thick synthesiser and clapping drum, occasionally rattling. The tempo is slow and sensual. It mixes sultry vocals with softly spoken raps and soulful adlibbing. The vocals are multi-tracked and layered to help the song pack some power.


The visuals, introduced as ‘Crush Club’, is like a nightclub, whereby only Maribelle and the DJ are invited. Dry ice wafting about makes the video a moody effort. The colour scheme is a touch of black and predominantly pinkish purple. The backdrop is an inverted triangle.

I've always wanted to be involved in the media since before I even left school; to write for a living.I feel most eloquent when mapping out my thoughts on paper or on a computer screen.I studied media at college for two years, and went straight into third year at university studying publishing with journalism.After a range of work experience, I did a magazine journalism course in Bournemouth, a long way away from my hometown of Aberdeen, achieving my NCTJ qualifications.Now I spend my time gladly writing about music.
