Marina City - Strawberry.jpg

“‘Strawberry’ is a sultry single as delectable as the fruiT.”

“Radiating with peppy beats and smooth, seductive vocals, this Prince-inspired track fuses indie pop with a hint of R&B.”

“Marina City’s up-tempo, energetic music is beautiful, funky and extremely irresistible.”


"The song oozes with dance beats and infectious vocal lines that will leave you no choice but to move your body. Showing musical traces of Prince (that’s the obvious one), Bruno Mars, and even Maroon 5, Marina City have infused their own brand of dance-pop-R&B."


“The song redefines poppin’—starting off with electric pops that will immediately get you snapping your fingers. Then the falsetto vocals come in to give you chills in all the feelgood ways. And when that guitar hooks you in, damn, you’ll be on your feet and moving.”


“The indie pop group is all about breaking musical barriers and creating their own unique sound.”

“They’re indie pop with an R&B twist, evoking the best of Prince, Michael Jackson, and The 1975 without sounding like anyone but themselves.”

Atwood magazine

"The track is smooth and dark, with a vibe that (as you might expect) is truly addicting. The video does a great job of matching the mood with distinct color schemes and a compelling story."

Ground Sounds

"The original song is a slow-burning pop noir, dark and sexy. Cho keeps the same pathos but ups the BPM on the track to create a dance floor ready anthem."
