Mariangela is a gem of early electronic pop with sparkling synths, drums machines, and lush arrangements, propelling the songs of an unapologetically strong-willed adolescent. In the mid 70s, Mariangela Celeste signed to the major label Polygram, at the age of 13. She would then go on to record her self-titled album with uprising legend Vangelis. Its sound is years ahead of its time, with Vangelis' decisions to wrap the song’s dreamy melodies in sundazed synths, popping drum machines, and cavernous guitar effects, confounding even its creator. The album hit the shelves in 1975,confusingly limited to Greece, Canada, South Africa, and Holland but never to bigger markets.
