Song Samples

“Maria Genevieve Elia and Michael Justin Lee, together as Solemn Pledge, dive deep into the historical decadence of Berlin, echoing the vibrant, tumultuous youth of German-born movie star and celebrated war hero, Marlene Dietrich…Throughout, Solemn Pledge achieves a rare balance, infusing their sound with rock-striped opulence while avoiding the pitfalls of pretension. Each element—from the poignant lyrics to the meticulously crafted instrumental arrangements—resonates with the authenticity and complexity of Dietrich’s own life journey.”
