Marika Hackman made a very savvy choice when she chose "Boyfriend" as both the opener and lead single for I'm Not Your Man - savvy because the album makes a pretty seismic shift from the nu-folk of her debut. It's a damn sight noisier for a start, requiring a full band setup. Handily, she happens to be pals with London-based group the Big Moon, who act as her backing band for the record.

Hertfordshire singer-songwriter Marika Hackman’s transition from dark alt folk to power pop, and very occasionally, post punk diva is undoubtedly not going to please all, but with her second album, I’m Not Your Man, she’s arguably produced one of the albums of the year. There’s been hints of a change in direction for a while – heralded by the musical collaboration with alt rockers The Big Moon, spawning the glorious chunk of radio-friendly power pop that is ‘Boyfriend’.
Hackman is a forceful songwriter, but it is here on ‘I’m Not Your Man’ that her musicianship is really brought to the fore. From harmonies to fuzzy electric guitar solos, to contrapuntal melodies and addictive pop hooks, Marika Hackman has curated an LP with both immediate cultural significance and musical longevity.

On Marika Hackman’s ‘I’m Not Your Man’, the English songwriter wrote perhaps the first song inspired by ‘The L Word’. The pair went off and wrote songs for a budding side project together. But when Hackman was working on her sophomore record, I’m Not Your Man, she used one on her own album. And her girlfriend wasn’t exactly pleased. I felt really bad. It was the beginning of our relationship. But that early time is exactly what that song is talking about. You don’t trust yourself and you don’t know if you’re going to be able to commit. You’re having a really good time but you’re very self-aware of the fact that you can be an asshole and feelings can just change and it’s really terrifying.
Marika Hackman is back with a brand new album and the coolest gang in town, The Big Moon, as her backing band. Photos: Poppy Marriott. Marika Hackman knows what she wants. With ‘I’m Not Your Man’ though, Marika has worked out exactly what she is. And that’s powerful. I think a lot of my journey thus far has been a process of elimination. It’s not deliberately rebellious, but a big chunk of ‘I’m Not Your Man’’s energy sees Marika pulling away from what I’ve been perceived as before. It’s fun, toying with people in that way. Her music is sometimes still called folk and that blows my mind.
Hurrah for Hackman! The British musician has, for her second album, set fire to her twee-ish sound and risen from the alt-folk scene like a proper stomping pop star, all sharp suits and songs that brood with breakup angst and simmer with sexuality. Her pearlescent lightness is still there in her sweetly sung cut-glass vocals, but in place of acoustic twangs there are heavy lidded licks and an overall louche noir. Standout track Good Intentions has an Alt-J-like intricacy to the rhythm until Hackman erupts into dissonant playground yeah-ing and L7-ish crunch, while Gina’s World and So Long have an excellent, lip-curling sultriness – bedroom pop gone sinister. There’s more straightforward upbeat festival indie on My Lover Cindy – the wry twist being that she’s not some mop-top bloke singing about a girlfriend – and Cigarette echoes her former beautifully plucked form.
