The “FLOAT (The Cowgirl and the Alien)” video (directed by Marsa & Karolina Tyszkowska) is an animated fantasy of impossible romance becoming real.
“FLOAT” is thoroughly more engaging than some of the other crossover singles I’ve listened to this summer largely thanks to the physicality of its mastering, which allows for the instruments to have equal footing with an otherwise overpoweringly melodic vocal from Marsa herself. She’s quite a brilliant singer, and it’s only because of the stripped-down arrangement in this track that we’re really able to appreciate how deftly she can navigate even a complicated groove that would be a lot less forgiving to anyone else who had given this same song a shot. If this is par for the course, I can’t wait to hear what she comes up with next. – Music Existence
“This lead vocal is awfully fearless, and as we get deeper into the song, it becomes clear that the charismatic sway of one Denise Marsa is the most powerful force to be reckoned with in this single, even if it does come from a rather soft vocal in more than a couple of instances. She’s just so bewitching with her Josh Homme-style swagger ahead of the verses, and even without the presence of raging electric guitar parts, you can tell that the heavier side of music has had an influence over how she approaches a piece like “FLOAT (The Cowgirl & The Alien).” –indiepulsemusicmag
