Marbey’s “Is It You?” Video Is A Cinematic Journey To The Past 

Armenia’s electro-pop diva, Marbey, has unraveled a new chapter of sonic artistry with her single “Is It You?” A song steeped in the melancholic beauty of yearning and remembrance, it is an ode to the golden eras of music, integrating elements of ‘80s pop, disco, R&B, and experimental electronic sounds.

“Is It You?” serves as Marbey’s first journey into the world of original songwriting, marking her evolution as an artist. With her ingenuity and the lyrical prowess of Lilith Khumaryan and Raffi Hayrapet, the song is a symphony of eclectic sounds and evocative words, narrating a story of a love lost and the deep longing that follows. 

Music and lyrics converge in a harmonious dance, as Miqayel Voskanyan’s production and arrangements, enhanced by the craftsmanship of Raffi Hayrapet and Jack Aprat, breathe life into the composition. Recorded, mixed, and mastered by Sergey Gasparyan at Alpha Sound Studio, the song’s chorus echoes “Is it you? Is it you? I wanna change my life; I wanna be with you.”
