"Black Marble formed in 2012 as an artistic extension of Chris Stewarts collection of songs and ideas. The name Black Marble took some time to arrive upon and is more than fitting. As a literal description of a material used to sculpt and build, its the fleeting notion of a one-time symbol of taste and affluence, frozen in a moment, slightly dusty and showing every smudge and mark. Started in a recording space in Bushwick, NY, Black Marble made their first EP, Weight Against the Door (Hardly Art) followed quickly by their chillingly moody and atmospheric debut full-length, A Different Arrangement (Hardly Art).
On September 30, 2016 Black Marble will release their second full-length, Its Immaterial, on Ghostly, and from a new locale, the West Coast. Still featuring Stewart at the helm along with select collaborators as supplementation, the bi-coastal shift lends a great deal to the overall feel of the new album. The light and dark elements of shadows. The salt and sting of evenings high tide sea spray. A beautiful thing left on a shelf too high to maintain. The general mood is that of creating something new, but going back in time to do it. Like attempting to flesh out a song that you woke up humming but cant find, because it doesnt exist yet."
